52 Ancestors Week 7: Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day to those of you who celebrate πŸ™‚

The topic for this week is very fitting for some lovely treasures I inherited after my grandfather passed away: his mother’s school Valentine’s! I love vintage Valentine’s and absolutely adore that she kept these cards all of her life! I swear, that womanΒ knew that one day someone like me would come along and want them.

Here are my great-grandmother’s Valentine’s Day cards from the 1910’s. Enjoy your day!
