Treasure Box

I have a treasure box.

I thought it was lost,
but it was in one of those really special spots,
you know...
so special you can't find it spots.

However, it's not your "usual" treasure box.
It doesn't have straps or locks,
although it should,
because it's filled with
very special vintage valentines.

And not just any valentines,
valentines from my grandmother.
They are dated from the 1910's.
Her name was Sophie...
and she was a sweet grandmother.
I'm assuming she was a precious little girl
with a lot of admirers too.
For if she wasn't,
she wouldn't have had so many special cards.

Now, I know it's not time for a red valentine's table...
I truly know that
because it's only January.
But you wouldn't mind a blue valentine's table,
would you?

So here's my table this week:
It's all about the special treasures from my sweet grandmother, Sophie.

I have a hard time choosing a favorite from her collection,
but this hand-made note is certainly one of them.

so sweet.
