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.

Hi Adrienne. Your Valentine banner is cute. One of my favorite chorusues is "Give thanks with grateful heart". I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. Rhondi xoReplyDelete

I love the valentines from yesteryear. :o)ReplyDelete
I have an old Valentine from 1964 from a little boy named Timmy Timmons. On the back of a heart he scrawled, "I love you. A piece of candy for you. Love, Timmy" Well, before he gave me the valentine he tore off the candy that was affixed with Elmers Glue...and promptly ate it. haha.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and a very special thanks for your prayers. It never ceases to amaze me how God works..even through wonderful people like you that I hadn't even met yet. He is so good!
It is so nice to meet you. I only have a minute or two today but I'll be back to visit you soon and get to know you.
Please keep praying..we aren't out of the woods yet.
