Innocent Love


I haven't been writing posts recently but I couldn't let Valentine's Day pass without sending a greeting to all you special people I've gotten to know through linky parties.  

Searching through my box of vintage Valentine postcards, this  delightful series of greetings remind me of the tokens that children would swap with their school mates.
  
Based on copyright marks and postmarks,
 these postcards date during the 1911-1912 time frame.


Don't you love the sailor suits that young boys wore in this era?


This shy miss is hopeful ...


And, even at such a tender age, a heart can be broken.


Happy Valentine's Day!


Until next time, live and love well.

To me, the old valentines had more real meaning than the ones today.

Oh Debra, those postcards are just darling! I like those conversation heart candles, especially that bright green one that goes perfectly with the little girl's dress in that first photo.
So nice to see a post of yours again, I miss you and your posts.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment.
Happy Valentine's Day!

An age of innocence I'm afraid we have lost nowadays. I still love this kind of expression of love.
