Happy Valentine's Day!

    
Above is a photo of an antique honeycomb puff card.  It was made back in the day when a card was so much more than they are today. It is part of this collection:
These are not very good photos, plus the colors are faded now.
But I thought they deserved a mention. Just the fact that something so fragile has existed for so long is a wonder. It tells you how much the original recipient cherished them. I found a whole bag of them at an antique mall for $3.0O. It was an instant collection! You know what they say- one is one, two is a pair and three is a collection. 
Well, that's it for now. I am working on several things, but nothing to show yet. So, a very happy Valentine's Day to everyone, and especially to my better half - we have stayed together through thick and thin.....
Love,
Sheila

What a lovely collection - wink! I buy vintage cards when I see them too. How could we pass them up? Happy Valentine's Day.

When I was a child I had an elderly neighbor with an album full of vintage Valentines. I loved the time I would spend with her flipping through the pages, perusing the delicate confections. These brought back such memories to me.
What a great find!

I remember when I was a child in school how excited I would be to exchange valentines with classmates and occasionally receiving an extra fancy one. Fun memories of the 1950s.

I wonder if they still make anything with that honeycomb design anymore? I remember when Hallmark had honeycomb designs for all of the holidays. Your quilt in the background really compliments the color of the cards. Happy Valentine's Day!
