Valentine’s Day 2014!

It’s a day dedicated to showing your love and affection to friends and family. February 14th. And Vintage Roost wants to help you show that love by offering items crafted with love during its Valentine Open House this month. This is your invitation to visit Debbie’s sweet little shop in the country where my Studio Meringue will have Valentine cards available for you.

Where: The Vintage Roost

Seasonal Hours: Fridays & Saturdays, January 31st, February 1st, 7th & 8th, 10-5pm

935 NW Scenic Dr. 1/2 miles off Hwy 20 in North Albany

All major credit cards accepted!

Below is a look at a lot of the cards I’ll have available at Vintage Roost during its opening for the next two weekends.  All my photos are printed by me, using the highest quality matte finished photo paper and inks. The paper is not glossy with a matte pattern printed on top of it to tone down the gloss, it’s paper formulated to accept the ink in a way that makes my photos look like little pieces of art!  If my photo contains a flower, I print its name on the back of the card. When the card features a landscape, I print where the photo was taken on the back. I’m excited about some of the heart shapes I found in nature this last year to use in some of the cards you will see in this post. I hope that you will enjoy them and if you can’t make it to Vintage Roost you can always call or email me direct to purchase a card.  Thank you!

This Amaryllis made heart is one of my most popular photos. This year it comes back to say “Be Mine”

Also known as Iberis, its negative space gave me a heart!

Beaver Tail Cactus

While visiting friends in Arizona I spotted this heart shape, it’s a Beaver Tail Cactus.

Saguaro Cactus

During the same visit with friends in AZ., on a walk, I noticed that the bird nest hole in this Saguaro was heart shaped.

My last card in this post is a little out of my “ordinary”…. but it’s a heart!
