Antique Valentines

                                                Valentine's Day is four days away.

What a perfect time to join Rubbish by Roan and show off my antique Valentines. I am eighty-one and these cute little valentines were given to me by my mother when I was very small so I guess they would qualify as antiques, right?  I am so happy that I still have them. Aren't they just the cutest things?

these two have holes in the top where a ribbon attached them to a small toy.
 
 
Just take a look at that telephone!!
 
the door opens on this one.
 
Do you have any special Valentines' that you have kept?

  2. These are just beautiful and how lovely that you still have them. I've always sent my children Valentines cards and I hope they treasure them as much as you do yours.

  5. It is, and I do, in fact probably more than I should. I even kept last year's box from hubby, and had it out for pictures this weekend. Very cool design I may add.

  7. I just loved seeing these! So glad you shared them, Mom! They are little treasures! Happy Valentine's Day!

    I wanted to tell you thanks for the comment on piece-fulness. I too liked the dresden plate with the blue centers a lot. The blue was a blue & white polka-dot and I think I would have preferred a small flower design on the blue, but I just loved it. The appliques were some of my favorites as well. I am so "into" embroidery I loved the little sunbonnet sues with their applique and embroidery also. The Tombstone and Sierra Vista shows are coming up at the end of this month and Yvonne and I want to go again like we did last year, meeting Candy.

  9. So sweet that you're mom gave you these. They are in remarkable condition....what colors. I saved many of the cards I've received from my kids, husband, and friends, but recently threw everything away, saving only a couple of things. Yeah, I'm purging stuff, still.

  13. How I wish I had saved ones from my childhood. You were so smart to save these pretty ones. The older I grow the more sentimental I grow.

  14. Thank you for visiting me at the Irish Garden House where you saw my great granddaughter enjoying her first NOODLES. My daughter and son in law are the grandparents. They call me GG, for great grandmother.

    I have some old valentines. Love the sayings . . . I like postcards too . . . I have saved and collected old cards through the years. This year I baked and decorated cookies. I haven't done that for years!

    Thank you for visiting me . . .
    Love, Lynne

  15. Hi Latane... It is wonderful that you kept some of the valentines from your Mother. When my grandmother was in her teens and early 20's (approx. 1900"s) she collected many postcards. There are many valentines included. I love all of them but the Christmas and valentines are the most fun to look at.

  16. Enjoyed seeing your valentines! I sure wish I'd saved some of the old valentines. I do have one that my mother had if I could only find it!

  17. These are precious! I don't have any like this and none from my own childhood. I do have an old homemade one that I found in 2 greats grandfather's bible. I would imagine it was either my grandmother's or her sister's. It is one of my most beloved heirlooms.
