Happy Valentine's Day!

I remember the little thrill as a child when I'd take all my Valentine cards to school, carefully filled out for all the kids in my class... and maybe a sucker or piece of gum attached if we could afford it.... mama always said if you do for one, you do for all! And days before the Big Event, the time we spent as a class creating a mailbox masterpiece from an old shoe box brought from home... decorated in a flurry of red, white and pink paper hearts and a mountain of Elmer's glue!

Maybe it was knowing that the day would be different and not much, if any, school work would be done that day... anticipating when the mom's would come to school with their fresh home baked goodies for our class party!

I love the vintage look of old Valentine's cards, don't you?
Here's just a few Valentine images I'm sharing with ya'll... just click to enlarge and right click to save to your computer if you like.
Have a blessed day my friends ~

Ahhh...the memories of days gone by. No longer is the day of school devoted to the day of love...such a shame cause God knows the world needs more love going around. Oh and the Valentine's Day party with home baked goodies from Moms....well that's a thing of the past too, with all the food allergies, school systems have been banning any unpackaged treats in schools...UGH! Sorta takes all the fun outta it!

Anyway, thanks for taking me back all those years and Happy Valentine's Day to you!
