Valentines from the Past


The valentines spread out of the table belong to our daughter. She received them from her kindergarten mates in 1967. In the middle of them, you can see the little holder with a handle that she made to place them in. Our daughter was born in 1963. I had saved our son's also but have not been able to find them.











This is a collection of valentines from the mid 1920's. They are valentine's that my mother received when she was going to school. Mother was born in 1912 and these were cards from her classmates.

  1. Those valentines are so wonderful! I just loved it when Valentines Day came around! Opening those cards were so wonderful and I would look and play with them for hours!
    I am the same age as your daughter!
    I hope you have a wonderful Valentines Day!

I would love to find one in white sometime, but any color would be fine as long as I can find the size I want for keeping out all year!.. Your teapot collection to the right is beautiful too!

  6. Marie, I loved seeing the valentines you've saved. I found the ones my Mother saved for me not long ago. They were from my first Valentine's Day in 1949.

I remember what a very special day it was to go to school and pass out all the cards (and receive them) in our hand made holders. Thanks for sharing! Lovely ways to display them too...I love the tree idea. Thanks for stopping by to visit me at my blog! Janice
