I edited the photos a wee bit in Photoshop.
I was looking for my box of old valentines this past week. I stumbled upon these. They are not what I was looking for but boy oh boy, did they bring back memories. You see, when I was a kid in the 60's these are the valentines we used to give out at school. I would take my homemade valentine box chuck full of these treasures home. I'd dump them out on the floor underneath the piano (don't ask why I liked to sit underneath the piano, I have NO idea) and sort them out. Then I'd play with them like paper dolls. Making up stories and outfitting the pretty girl valentines with dresses I made out of paper, stickers and bits of lace lifted from my mom's sewing basket. These aren't as beautiful as the old Victorian valentines but they sure are full of sweet little memories.
I would've had these two get married.
The happy couple would have a dog...
and a cat.
Well - it WAS the 60's!
And I had a very active imagination.
They would eat off of fine china that they purchased from IKEA. Oh. Wait. There was no IKEA in Missouri in the 1960's.Well, anyway this one's just darn cute. Kind of reminds me of Beauty and the Beast. That is, if you like anthropomorphic cupcakes and dishes.
Have a wonderful Valentine's Day. Make lots of memories.
