Making Hearts for Special Valentines

I cherish memories of long ago when my mother would gather boxes, pretty papers and other supplies to make a Valentine box for school.  We would then carefully write out our Valentines for each of our classmates and teacher.

I still have some of the Valentines my girls made me.  Last year I took a couple of them, scanned,  resized and printed them and made them into some very special charms to wear.



My Valentines for 2015 . . . 








If you like old Valentines like I do, perhaps you will enjoy this old poem I found in an Ideal's Magazine, Valentine issue dated 1993.

Old Fashioned Valentines
Georgia S. Adams

I like old-fashioned valentines
With lots and lots of lace,
A shy boy in blue knickers, and
A girl with doll-like face.

I like the old inscriptions, like
"Be mine, my Valentine."
I like old-fashioned valentines;
There's love in every line.

And each one has a cupid tucked
Away somewhere, you see;
They've done it for so many years,
Dates to antiquity.

I like old-fashioned valentines!
They seem so warm and true,
And anyway, I guess I am
A bit old-fashioned, too!
