It all started a couple of weeks ago. I needed an outlet. Something constructive but not time-consuming. Life was getting me down, down, down. Well, actually it was the nastiness of political stuff. But that ain’t going away, so….
I started going through boxes and boxes of ….STUFF.
I found THE most amazing STUFF!
My second grade portrait of my All Time Favorite Teacher?
Math papers from 7th grade that wasn’t failing!!! (Yes, I am still bad at math)
Birthday party invitations from the 4th grade. And the 3rd grade. And the 8th grade.
Party napkins from every wedding, baby shower I ever attended and also every birthday party and graduation party. Sigh. I’m not kidding even a little bit.
On top of all that…was my husband’s box of grade school-college STUFF!
And our three sons’ STUFF.
Then came the tons of photos.
BUT…in the middle of all that STUFF, I found really, really old valentines. That were sent to Big Boss, his mom, a lady his mom took care of, me, our sons…
Getting the picture? I love old STUFF and naturally assume that everybody loves OLD stuff. So I’m sharing! Aren’t you glad?
Here goes…I backed them with 8×8 scrapbooking papers to make them pop and am considering recycling them for grands’ valentines this year??
First, a World War II era card sent to my mother-in-law…
And, a hinged card (and the oldest), to Pearl, the lady who Granny watched over. She was teacher and I have a sack full of these! I know. How lucky can one hoarder get?!!
