Dear Louise, This is a very heartfelt post in such a subtle and appropriate way.I remember my mom always keeping cards and such tucked away in her books, bible and drawers. I remember the sweet smell of her perfume and sachet's on these keepsakes long after she was gone.The friendships that appear when we need them I consider angelic and heaven sent. Beautiful post. Blessings dear. Catherine xo
Thank you Catherine. I am grateful for your words, thoughts and prayers. They are precious...
Hi Louise , Valentine's Day always put me in a 'Sentimental' mood , especially when I have chocolate on my mind (which is all time) ;-D what a great post , I think my older sister has a Victoria magazine , Friendship is something I don't take lightly . I treat all my friends like a fragile package ... 'Handle with Care' . Thanks so much for sharing :)
Hi Nee, I have complete sets of Victoria Magazine beginning in 1988. I re-read them whenever I get the chance. Your sister must love hers:) I am so glad we have become online friends Nee. You always bring a smile to my day:)
Amen, sister! I'm happy to have you as a virtual friend.
Right on, Marjie! Me too!
aah This is absoluely lovely dear Louise! (Happy to be your friend):)
Thank you, Gloria...I too am so delighted to have you as a virtual friend. One day we should hug, in person!
Thank you, Louise, for this post that serves as a reminder to remember others.
So glad you enjoyed it, Nellie. My online friends have become a very important part of my life.
Dear Louise, Just beautiful! A lovely post and it is so true. I remember my grandmother saving little cards she would get from her girlfriends, they were scented with perfume and would have a tassel on the end. Some of them had lace around the border, and others had beads with pearls. She took such good care of them and would always tell me, "That you can have many friends, but you will only have 5 true friends. A friend is never a co-incidence in your life. They bring you joy and laughter. So treasure the friendship you have between them.". Blessings....dear friend, Dottie <3
Your grandmother's words are wisely chosen, Dottie. It has been wonderful getting to know you and your loving blog...Cin cin!

Beautiful post, Louise! I always loved Victoria magazine! Happy Valentines Day, my friend!
I hope you are having a warm Valentine's Day in Florida, Kathy, enjoy your visit:)
Really cute! Love all the treasures you share with us. This one is so appropriate for Valentine's Day. Thanks so much.
It was so much fun to share it, John. I'm glad everyone is enjoying it:)
Wish we could sit down for a cuppa! It's a great pot of tea kind of day here. 10-20" of snow on the ground with more on the way, and two dogs who have somehow gotten too mature to want to play with me in the snow. Sigh.
Oh so do I Channon, so do I. One day we will, I'm sure.
Lovely post, Louise!Happy Valentine's Day!
Thank you Joyce!
I can't imagine my life without my friends!
I used to get Victoria--it was such a lovely publication! And what sweet sentiment this expresses. Of course also a good reminder that I must get going and wish my online friends Happy Valentine's Day. So Happy Valentine's Day Louise!
