Now this vintage Valentine is interesting to me for several reasons. First, you'll see what looks like a scratch or tear at the bottom, a curve through the bottom two hearts. This is apparently a tab designed into the Valentine so you can stand it up if you like. The other thing that strikes me about this Valentine is that it's a little sassy: "You eat my food and drink my tea, Why don't you feast your eyes on ME?"
This card was actually sent to Gail from Sharon, so I'm going to assume they were friends and this was really just an innocent little greeting. If a grownup told me, "You eat my food and drink my tea," I'd think they were saying I was a hog! And if a child said that to me, I'd tell them they were being too sassy and ought to have their mouth washed out with soap. (Something that never happened to me, but probably should have!)
Speaking of soap, I have some! Actually, I have some for one of you, and it smells yummy, yummy, yummy!
It's one of those mammoth-sized Rose & Green Tea soaps, and I estimate this'll last you until about, oh, Halloween or so. If you'd like to win, just leave an "Enter me" comment to this post between now and 7 a.m. EST tomorrow. Good luck!
