Lynne from "Irish Garden House"
had a giveaway celebrating
the addition of her 100th follower.
I WON !!! ..

Just in time for Valentines Day,
I received a package.
And what a package it was, starting with this lovely card
and a sweet note from Lynne. 

Included where these vintage postcards..
Remember one and two cent stamps??
These cards date back to 1910...
I'm sure that I remember a three cent postcard.

I got a kick out of reading the messages written on their backs.
They are lovely..a real treasure.

There was also a box of the BEST chocolate covered nuts
I have ever had..Truly !
They were from Mc Donald's Home Made Candies
in Muskegon, Michigan.
I had to share some with  a friend because 
I have NO willpower.

These darling clay hearts made the trip safely.
Everything was well wrapped in lots of tissue paper.

Max just loves tissue paper
 and proceeded to make a little nest from it.

Thanks so much Lynne.
You made my Valentines Day very special.
Congratulations on Number 100.....

That's a sweet gift. I remember 5 cent stamps and 35 cent gasoline. That price for gasoline was back when the minimum wage was 3 dollars an hour.
