My First Valentine

35.  My sweet, sweet mother put together wonderful memory scrapbooks for 
my siblings and I this past year. 
It was amazing how she saved so many 
precious pieces of memorabilia from each of our lives: 
school papers, baby bracelets, certificates, Christmas wish lists,
notes we wrote to her and of course photographs.  I spent the other 
day just paging through this wonderful treasure of my life memories.  
And I came across my very first Valentine!  I was only one years old! 
 It was sent to me by my maternal Aunts, Grandmother and Grandfather.  
Inside it says, "Because you're such a darling tot, So cute in every way.
Everyone will want you for a Valentine today"
and then they each signed it!

Isn't this the sweetest thing?

I realized this card is vintage now...February 1961.  Does that make me vintage?  

Happy Valentine's Day to each of you!  
I hope you each have a sweet day filled with lots of love and goodies!
And...Happy Birthday to my dear sister! 

"I've fallen in love many times...
always with you."

Hello Lilly. First of all, I love your name! One of our sweet couples at church had a baby girl Jan. 2. They named her Lilie Katelyn. Such a pretty name for a pretty lady I'm sure! Thanks for the nice comment on my blog. I'm glad you found me too; that way I found you! I looked at your blog and I adore the doilies!!! My grandmother and great aunt made me several and I cherish them all. I have them throughout my house. I've tried to crochet, but just can't get the hang of it. I love to cross stitch though. I look forward to getting to know you. I'd love to hear more about your life as a preachers wife and more about your church, etc.
My email is
Thanks again. So nice to meet you.

Oh Lilly:
If you are vintage then I must be pre-historic!

One of the first things I do every day is log on to your blog. You just have a way with words, and I love the pictures, too. Thank you for the birthday greetings. I received the b-day card and the envelope was sealed. We are going out to eat again, probably Italian. February is just one continuous month of celebrating! Love you bunches.
