Dear Sweet Beloved Thine


The colors of Valentine's Day are right up my alley. In this little collage, I'm particularly drawn to the splash of deep, rich red and how it plays off of the time-worn colors of the vintage text. The cupid figure is dreamy, his mailbag filled with letters of hope and love and other such affectations. We need more love. We need love more. Just looking at him inspires me to get it right more often. Silly, huh, how the picture of a robust little fella with wings can arouse such thoughts. I must say goodbye to him now, though, for he is off to his new home...with instructions to work his charm on another!

I am so excited to know that you and I are in the same swap again... too bad we didn't make enough for everyone. Yours is so pretty. If you happen to think about it, send me a note if you sign up for any more swaps. I love them, and I love your work!!
I still never found out who got your marie. She was a doll!
