HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY...


The little girl who, long ago, cherished the sweet Valentines I've shared this week was my aunt, Violet Elizabeth (license plate behind her looks to be about 1932, which would make her about 3 years old). There were lots of "puppy/kitty worthy" Valentines in her collection, so she was obviously loved.
THIS is a pretty frazzled kitty!
Violet and her sister, Barbara Jean (Bobbie), my Mom - there was a 9 year age difference between them. Sisterly love is a pretty wonderful thing...don't you dare cry, Mom (I already brought her to tears with the Shirley Temple post - HAPPY Valentines thoughts today!  XOXO)

This may be a "puppy worthy" Valentine, but that puppy looks to be an ankle biter!  See, you're smiling NOW, aren't you?





"Life's greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved"...Victor Hugo
"Oh, if to be choose and call thee mine, love, thou art everyday my Valentine"...Thomas Hood
"Shake and shake the ketchup bottle.  First none'll come, and then alot'll"...Richard Armour

From my heart to yours, family and friends alike - 
Happy Valentine's Day!

Great photos and a wonderful collection of cards. They certainly don't make them like that anymore. Some so sweet, and some downright hilarious. The illustrations alone though are fantastic. Have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

Thank you for sharing all the wonderful vintage Valentine cards! What a treasure to have all these. I have enjoyed them so much. I hope you had a happy Valentine's day yesterday, maybe you got some new cards for a new collection that one day in the future will be as precious as those you showed here!
