More Rednesday Valentine's

Welcome to another Rednesday! Did you come on over from Sue's blog? It's a Very Cherry World! I bet, so! Love Rednesday!Do you remember last week when I said I didn't have that many vintage Valentine's? Well, two days later I went to the antique shops with my friend, Cathy. We both collect vintage Valentine's but our tastes are totally different. She collects Whitney Mades. Well, we both did well that day! I came home with about a dozen and I think she did about the same! Maybe now would be a good time to mention I've never won a darn thing in the lottery!
I love the anthropomorphic veggies! I added a couple more baseball cuties! Plus, a few birds. My favorite among the birds is this flicker. Kind of unusual I think. My daughter loved it, too. So, I feel I am cultivating that love of vintage things with her.
While we are on the subject of my daughter. This Valentine reminds me of her. She loves her noodles....and plain just like the girl here! Of course she pointed out to me, she's not blonde! She is very much a stickler for details! Wonder where she gets that from?
So, I have this quilt..... you had to know I had another to share! This is my Raggy Heart quilt. It's one of those easy ones, just a matter of sewing the hearts on top, cutting them into quarters, then sewing them back together. The quilting is always the challenge! My machine quilting is best!So, what will become of me next Rednesday when Valentine's Day is over and the reds aren't as obvious? I actually have a REALLY good red to share if I can ever finish the little details it needs! One of these days.....


  1. I LOVE the Vintage Valentine's, they are SO cute and the quilt is beautiful! Happy Rednesday! :-)

  2. These are such sweet cards. I love the quilt too. My daughter has red and white one with hearts that I meant to share and forgot until now. Thanks for jogging my memory, it needs all the help it can get!

  3. I love your vintage valentines , great find ! The quilt is fantastic !
    Happy Valentine's Day !

  4. Great valentines! I love the flicker one, because you've got to know your woodpecker species to get it. I know spring really is here when I see them in our yard. Which won't be for quite a while from the looks of things!

  5. Shelley, what a darling quilt! I like your anthro cards - the tomato is my fave! And, yes, the flicker is so nice!

  6. Love the Valentines! I collect vintage Valentines too and yours are some of the sweetest I've seen. I too love the anthropomorphic veggies and the noodle girl is just darling!
