Ribbon and Lace

Valentine's Day is just a few weeks away.
To reflect the spirit of this romantic holiday,
I would like to share a series of antique postcards.  

Each of the postcards bears a cherub,
colorful ribbon shaped into a heart that is surrounded by
a frame of cheerful posies and a lacy border.
A rhyme on each card expresses loving sentiments.  

The manufacturer is unknown.
The only marking on the back states
Heart Valentine Series No. 2. 
The cards date to the year 1910.











Until next time, live and love well.



Joining these lovely parties this week:
