Dear Valentine

Dear Friends I am so happy to be joining some vintage loving bloggers for The Vintage Valentine Blog Hop today! If you are visiting from Petite Haus I am sure you are feeling inspired by Angelina's lovely decor!

Dear Valentine, my theme, do you remember writing out Valentines when you were in school or helping your children.  I hope this post brings back sweet memories and I decided it was a perfect opportunity to freshen up my vintage writing desk.  She needed some love, so she got a shabby pink paint redo and I've included a before and after.  I brought out all my porcelain China bouquets and my favorite blond Cupid, and I'm writing all my vintage Valentines to the ones I love. Thank you so much for visiting my blog today and all the other blogs on the hop! If you missed any other blogger's wonderful posts you can click on the links below.

  14. Most women don’t know this... but even if a man is attracted to you or even says he loves you...

    ...chances are he still feels something is missing.

    Because there is a secret, emotional need hidden within his heart that he craves more than anything.

    And in most cases, is not being met.

    The problem is, if it’s not being met, his attention will inevitably wander until he finds a woman who can give it to him.

    Maybe one in a thousand women knows how to do this instinctively, and they usually rise to unbelievable levels of influence and fame.

    But most women, or men for that matter, don’t even know it exists.

    On the other hand, when you have this 1 simple secret...

    You won’t believe the shocking effect you have on the men in your life.

    Here’s a video I discovered that shows you exactly what I’m talking about:
