Cut and Paste

I awoke this morning thinking of Valentine’s Day…….a day with a built-in excuse to send loving thoughts to family and friends.  Remember the days of cut and paste, not on the computer…cutting red hearts with blunt-end scissors, then pasting on white doilies with thick white paste from big jars that we all liked to eat!!!  I suppose you have to be of a certain age………

So…….I went in search of bits and pieces to cut and paste together


of course in those days we never put pink and red together……

    I always loved Valentine’s Day when I was young. Then when Seana was young I set up a love of the day for her. We used to find paper doilies and red and pink paper and cut some lovely pictures out of magazines to make up some Valentines. One, I still have, she made for me.
