As always, a great article, Angela! Happy Valentine's Day [and month] to you!
Another good post! I love seeing your vintage Valentines. I usually try to make Valentine cards, but this year I think I'm going to have to buy some. Enjoy Valentine season!
Nice article! Your article makes me want to start trolling the internet for tea themed Valentine's.
I really enjoyed your article, Angela. I, too, always loved Valentine's Day in grade-school long ago. Instead of a paper sack, we each brought a shoebox to school and decorated that, and put a slit in the top so the other kids could slip in the valentines. And speaking of sending cards and gifts to friends, in Finland the holiday is called Ystävänpäivä, which means "Friend's Day," so you send cards to your friends and relatives, not just to your "significant other." I think that's a great idea, so that's what I do, too. So Happy Friend's Day to you and all the readers of this column, fromDCCardsFan in Washington, DC!
Another informative and entertaining article! I see many vintage holiday postcards on other blogs and find them really endearing. Maybe I'll have to take a peek at ebay.
I love Valentine's Day too. A few years ago, I gathered a group of ladies from our church at my home for a spend the night party a few days before Valentine's Day. They were instructed to bring Valentines like the ones we used to exchange as kids. I had decorated a brown bag for each lady and upon arrival they distributed them into the bags. We served chocolate covered strawberries and other goodies. We played games, stayed up late talking and sharing and then crashed to sleep off the strawberries. What fun to re-live a childhood sleepover!
Nice article. Though I doubt my son's Ninja Turtle valentines will be sold on eBay in 50 years. Lol.
Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
