Sunday was a triple celebration! Valentine's Day, SJ's birthday and my mom's birthday. As a special treat, my mom displayed her collection of Valentines. She has saved Valentines from her children, grandchildren, husband and friends. She also had some Valentines dating back to 1913 that were given or received by my grandmother when she was a child. That was almost 100 years ago! They were absolutely lovely!
This one was given to my brother by my great-grandmother. She died before I was born so I never met her.
My grandmother Florence sent this postcard (not actually a Valentine because the date says "April 16, 1913") to her grandmother, Mary Adeline. This is Addie's namesake.
The next few Valentines date back to 1916.
This Valentine was handpainted by my grandma Florence. I love this!!
Then it was on to the birthdays!
My mom makes everything meaningful and I love her for it!
Happy Birthday Mom!
