Vintage Thingies Thursday











My Vintage Thingies Thursday for today is short and sweet. Since Valentine is just around the corner, Coloradolady will not mind us sharing loves from the past.




This a Valentine I gave my mother back in the mid forties or early fifties. It has survived for many years. She was only 54 when she passed away October 1961.

So cool it was saved for so many years! My dad saved many things that meant a lot to him, and after he passed away, we were finding them all hidden in different spots in the house! Every day was like a treasure hunt!

Your mother did die young... I'm so sorry. My Mama lived 'til she was 91.. Bless her soul.
