Valentine's Day

 I  did not get any thing created for Valentine's Day this year, so dug back in the old photo archives and found these I took in 2009.  I thought I would just C & P the post I did at that time. Well...Leave it to Dab of This and That I messed up trying to do that, so just reposted the pics and started over.

The little handmade valentine (below) was made by my Aunt in the early 1900's - found it in a box of antique/vintage cards at an antique shop many years ago and recognized name and her hand writing was beautiful (beautiful old style script).  I asked her about it (before she passed away several years ago) and she seemed to think she was in the first grade when it was made.

Have a Great Valentines' Day

Happy Valentine's Day, Glenda! I also think that it's wonderful that you found your Aunt's card. I have a card that my aunt sent to my mother when she was a little girl - it's precious to me.

Sue said...

How amazing that you found a Valentine and your Aunt had made it. You were so lucky she was still alive to see it and talk about it. That has to be one of those interesting and unexplained things that doesn't seem possible.

Did you have our beautiful day yesterday? I took the dog out this morning expecting more of the same and almost froze to death...I think snow is headed our way for the weekend. Enough of winter for me...I'm over it! Have a good one!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

These are gorgeous Glenda, just gorgeous!
I just love that one with the bling, you should sale, you could link up here and I know folks would buy!

Oh my gosh Glenda. Was that ever meant to be? What are the odds of you finding a Valentine made by your Aunt when she was so young. What a cherished treasure. Thanks for sharing your sweet Valentines with SYC.
