Welcome to my Victorian Valentine's Day page.  This year, I'm including valentines I made for my family.




This is my husband and I on the day we were married nearly 30 years ago.  Like the graphic says, I still see Mark just like this. 

I did not make the Victorian valentines that follow, but I include them here because their beauty is inspiring.  The music playing in the background is Lara's Theme from Dr. Zhivago.  The instrumental is a favorite of my mother-in-law, Helen Silvestri.


















































Whoa!  Queen Victoria would do a double take on this one.  Clearly we are no longer in the 1890's.  This graphic was made by Laura, a friend of mine from the Brat Pack.  The valentines that follow are all members of my family and the frames have been designed by me.
