I claim there ain't
Another Saint
As great as Valentine.

I love this vintage valentine because it reminds me of the Faberge Easter Egg called “Lily of the Valley”  gifted in 1898 by Czar Nicholas II of Russia to his wife Alexandra, the great love of his life.

I wish each you love and joy on this Valentine’s Day.



  1. Happy Valentines Day!
    Love those pieces! Such detail - thanks for sharing and the link.

  2. About 10 years ago I took my kids to the Forbes Museum in Greenwich Village, NYC and saw Malcolm's collection of Faberge eggs ~ it was fabulous! Sadly, the collection has since been sold...


Hey, leave me a comment so I know that I'm not talking to just myself!
