To My Valentine...I know it's past Valentine's Day, but I just had to show you what my beloved Valentine gave me!These fabulous vintage Valentine candy boxes!!! I have really been wanting one (or a collection of them!). They are just so nostalgic and romantic and sweet! And these two are my favorite colors, aqua and pink!!!I can't believe how huge the aqua one is. It's about 16 inches! It would take a lot of chocolates to fill up that box. A big thank you and huge smooch to my dear hubby for this lovely gift!!! I think they are so pretty I may just leave them out all year long!
Michelle xoxo

Michelle, is never too late to show love. I keep seasonal things year around if I like them, ex; my bunnies, garden related stuff and bottle brush trees. I just change colors and dress the bunnies and the trees according to season. Thanks for inquiring about the store. I always knew you were really close because the places that you visit and loved are my favorites too. If you google my store name (Marta's room) my Craiglist and Ebay classifieds adds come up. The info is all there. Do call me in advance if you decide to come this way since I take care of my mom and sometimes the unexpected happens. I hope I get to meet you in person sometime soon, blessings, Marta.
