Love in an earlier time

When my Mother passed away awhile back, I stumbled upon these beautiful and fragile Valentines that my Grandmother had collected.

Many are three dimensional, though too delicate to fiddle with now, even for a photo op.

Happy Valentine's Day!

They are all so lovely. Thanks for posting the photographs. We moved a lot when I was growing up and therefore didn't save much paper. You are fortunate to have these in your collection.
Happy Valentine's Day! Rosemary

Yes, it is amazing these have held up as well as they have as both my Grandmother and Mother lived in Florida, with its damp and humid conditions, for 40+ years. I now have them in Ziplock bags in hopes of preserving them well for my daughter.

Wishing you a happy ~heart~ day as well, Rosemary.
