Sepia Scenes: A Valentine Theme

A Face In ProfileAn Angel
Years ago when our family was new and we decorated our home in the country style of decorating I read Country Style magazine. There were many items I would have loved to have had; but with two small children to raise our budget didn't always allow for decorating items. This was especially true when simple items were pretty pricey. The angel above is something similar to what I had seen in one of my magazines. My wonderful Hubs took a piece of wood, drew an outline and carved out this wooden angel for me. What an Angel he was!
This is one of my valentine postcards from my collection. I have no idea of the date. The canceled postage mark is long worn away. However, it was mailed with a one cent stamp.

I used to read Country Style or magazines like that one when we first moved into our home. I could see someone decorating their rooms with cupids and angels. I like paisleys and floral patterns myself.

I cannot get over how romantic your little angel is. That your husband made it speaks volumes about his heart.

Thom said...

WOW...your husband is indeed an angel. What a touching story. I love that stamp. 1 cent? My goodness. Just wonderful my friend.

The couple on the card adore each other, theirs a look of love. You did marry an angel, a gentleman who was so happy to provide the wonderful angel. So much in love that it is always, not just on February 14. Romance is not at all dead, it is very much alive!

That carved angel is really special. He did a nice job with it.

I also like the close up of that old postcard. That's a great imprint on it.

I love angels, and feel surrounded by them and their love always.
