My Grandma’s Valentines

My Grandma’s Valentines

I have a collection of Vintage Valentines – most of which I found at various antique shows and antique shops.  My favorite, however, are Valentines that were my Grandma Nellie Carr’s.

Here are a couple of them –


 
These are postmarked 1909 – and have a 1 cent stamp –
Sadly, I can’t read all of them because the writing has faded so much, but this one is cute – it is from Grandma’s friend, “Nettie” asking her if she received another Valentine from “Jay” – I don’t know who Jay is, but he isn’t my Grandpa!  Must have been a beau before she met and married my Grandpa!!
I LOVE these Valentines and they make me so happy to have them and get them out every year!

 
And I have to share this Valentine – I bought this one several years ago because it reminded me of my twin niece and nephew, Ted and Samantha – it looks soooo much like them when they were little! Love this! 
And these are some of my favorites from my collection –

 
Thanks for stopping by today!
