I adored Valentine's Day when I was in grade school. A day when found courage allowed for proclamations of heart felt feelings kept tucked away the rest of the year. A day to choose just the right Valentine for one special boy. The anticipation of perhaps receiving one in kind.
School Valentines are what I call the sentiments of love from my childhood. They have a very distinct look about them, and it thrills me no end when I come across them at a flea market.
I can clearly remember each of these Valentines from my own school days. The big red heart behind the central character identifies them right away! I keep them tucked away in a red scrapbook binder and smile each time I look at them.
A little Valentine Autograph dog made is just too cute. Girls would have these in class and pass them around to be signed by their classmates.
Easy as can be to make from scraps of felt. I love the little red buttons which allow the dog to sit or stand.
Snow is falling outside my craft room window today. A perfect day to look through School Valentines and remember the ones given to me.
