I left out one more thing I received from my Mom along with the photos the other day.
Vintage Valentines. New, never used, in the original packaging along with original envelopes.
They are just darling.
These are not my only vintage valentines. I have a small collection of homemade and used (I hate to use the word 'used' when refering to valentines. What would be better...given?) valentines. They are just as precious as these. I have the prettiest ones framed. I should show them to you too one day.
