Remember the colorful little valentines we slipped into decorated lunch bags on February 14th? My dear Aunt celebrated nearly forty Valentine’s Day mail drops with her second and third grade students. . . and I think she kept a large number of those little paper tokens.
I’ve given myself “permission” to save one box of ephemera from Auntie’s collections, but the box keeps getting larger. How can anyone resist little treasures like these 1950’s valentine’s sent to Mrs. Turner?
The real surprise came as I skimmed through the various cards and I found more than one Valentine with my own name carefully written on the back. It’s often that our own mail comes back to us, so I am sending this out again with Best Wishes for a Happy Valentine’s Day!
