Je T'aime

The postcards are from the collection of letters that my grandfather sent to my grandmother while in France during WWII.  He did not write on these, but sent them per her request for some pictures of the buildings in France.  
Doesn't the Eiffel tower just shout, "Je T'aime!"

The small pitcher came from Homegoods. 

I am linking here!  Check out all the lovely inspiration!  Also, stop by Bargain Hunting with Laurie for some Valentine's party inspiration and hop over to...

I love how there can be so much elegance in the simplicity of something like roses in a creamy pitcher and old postcards clipped together. Perfect! :-)

There's no place more romantic than Paris in Springtime is there?
Beautiful roses, such a deep gorgeous colour, I imagine they are sweetly perfumed, n'est pas?

Wow, what a great story to go with those postcards, something you will treasure forever. The pitcher is absolutely gorgeous, I wish I had as much luck as you all do finding these great treasures.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.

A lovely nostalgic Romantic Valentine vignette... the postcards do evoke Romance and the Love your Grandfather obviously had for your Grandmother... and Roses, well, they speak the language of Romance ANY day of the year! *winks*


Happy Valentine's Day... Dawn... The Bohemian
