Soul Journal Valentine Blog Party!!!!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!! I know I'm posting a little late...sorry! But, here we go...
This is a clooage I made this week in honor of Valentine's Day. It's 8x10 canvas board.
I lOVE the couple. The picture is a copy of a tintype taken pre-civil war. The back says the picture was taken before he went to war, and before they were married. They got married in 1866, so he made it back safe and sound. I like to think that his love carried him through...

I love a love story, don't you?

LOVE,
Tammy

I do love a love story. I'm a helpless romantic. I'm almost done with visiting everyone. I think I'll top off the night with a mushy chick flick.

That quote and the couple are perfect.

Thanks for coming out to play!

Happy Valentine's Day.

I too love a good love story. I wonder why they never smiled in photos back then? Thanks for sharing your lovely art work.

Happy Valentine's Day, Tammy. I love the collage. I love a good love story too. I'm sure their love helped him to survive and come back to her.

They do look in love! I've never seen a couple from this time period with their arms interlaced or touching in the photo -- makes it more special and touching!

Thank you for sharing - Happy World Friendship Week! Blessings LN
