To My Valentine

One of my "Vintage Valentines"
Oh, how I love these.
This one was never sent through the mail so it doesn't have a postmark or date,
but the ones that do are all about 95 to 100 years old.
The only thing is says on the back is, "To Elsie"

I'm not sure why school teachers think it's so awesome to send the kids home with a challenge to decorate their own valentines day boxes.  
And I'm not sure why my kids take on the challenge to design the most creative valentine box complete with music...
What happened to the good old days when we took a brown paper grocery sack, painted some hearts on with poster paints and stapled the top down?
more to come.
Happy Valentines Day!
