HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

I thought I'd share some of the antique valentines that were in my Mother's collection.  (She never threw a card away).   These are about 100 years old.  Aren't they sweet?



Valentine's day makes me think of my grandmother, who was born 135 years ago today.  

Hope your day is sweet!

Such a treasure! Are they from classmates? (Curious if handing out Valentine cards was as expected then as it is today...)

Very "special" display of your collection of vintage valentine cards and picture of your beautiful grandmother on this very "special" day.

Happy Valentines Day to you and your family.

Hugs, Carolyn

Oh, it would be wonderful to have the antique Valentine cards. Especially ones that were given to a family member. Love the doilies too.
