A Simple Valentine

This handmade Valentine was made by my Paternal Grandmother when she was 12.
It was made in February 1900 so it is 110 yrs old.

The inside is a note from Mama, my Great Grandmother

It is simply stated, enjoy and have a Happy Valentine with the ones you hold dear to your heart.


Love you Mama..........

That has to be the most precious thing you own. It doesn't get any better than that. Love it. You know, you are so blessed to have so much of your family in your heart from all of the treasures that they have kept.
