Sending Valentines

Like many of you I love vintage cards and postcards, they are simple and the graphs are, oh, so sweet. This was the little display that I used for the Valentine luncheon I hosted last week.

Can't you see this little guy riding around delivering valentines. I love the pink mailbox!

  I picked out a few of my favorite ones to feature. The ones with the little dark haired girls, they remind me of my own darling dark haired daughter.

Some of the valentines have such sweet messages in them….

Come back to me
Send me a line
It's you I want 
My Valentine

 A valentine tucked in a vintage ice bucket.

Later this week I will be taking off visit my blogging partner daughter in her home town
New York City. That is the best valentines gift of all to be able to send time with Andrea. Hopeful we will be visiting some new places to share with you.

What will you be doing to make your Valentine's Day special?

Did I mention it is also our wedding anniversary on the 14th? So it is a very special day for us.

I was first introduced to the vintage holiday cards by my sister, and once I saw them, I was hooked. The vintage card with the red roses is so pretty. I hope you had a sweet time with your daughter, and I look forward to seeing more pictures of your fun day.

That is truly a wonderful collection of vintage Valentine's cards. I have a handful of oldies, but no where near the number you have.

Thanks for linking to Time Travel Thursday with this holiday cheer.
