Vintage Valentines - Two

These are my Mother's valentines from when she was a little girl.

She was born in 1925, so these would be from the 1930s I would guess.


The honeycomb was probably originally red.







This one is the prettiest in my opinion.
The children and their bench look 3D to me.




These were home made.
I'm sure my Mother was not able to buy store Valentines for her friends either.


Happy Valentine's Day !

Adorable, from much simpler times. Love the one that says, "You Auto Be My Valentine". :-))

Makes me smile. One of my favorites is cards. Turning them over seeing what is written. Penmanship. Sweet memories in writing. Smiles...Renee

I think my grandmother gets the credit for them still being around. Thanks!

I agree . . . and I fear that penmanship is a thing of the past. Thanks!
