Love never goes out of style but the ways of expressing it change with the years. This is a valentine that was among the things we bought at Leroy's aunt's sale a couple years ago. It is the size of a name or calling card. One end of the design lifts up to reveal the sender's name. The name printed under the picture on this one is Aaron G. Weaver. I don't know who he was but I'm sure the ladies in his day were impressed with this little card. I just think they are cute old things that give us a window into valentine's days of the past.
So what are you doing for those you love on Valentine's Day? I'm planning to make a Sweetheart Salad for the day. "The way to a man's heart . . ." you know. What am I getting from him? I'm not expecting roses. I'll get those in June when I pick them from my own bushes. I get practical things---like a new sweeper. Mine died last week and I really needed a new one. You can't sweep the floor with roses!
