My dear little mother saved some things that bring back happy memories of my childhood. A couple of years ago she gave me a box of greeting cards that were given to me through my childhood years - special things from very special people. The vintage valentines in my header were among the cards she saved for me. Each given by a special friend. Each one brings back so many memories. The messages inside and on the back of these treasured valentines are sweet. The valentine shown here is big - about 8 1/2 inches tall - with a little cardboard 'stand'. He has soft, fuzzy fur. On the back is this delightful message.
Over the next few days I will share my sweet, old valentines with you. And there may be a story or two along the way about the dear people whose names are forever inscribed on my heart.
