Valentine's Greetings


hope cupid is good to you. i have always loved vintage postcards; i have a collection i'll show you sometime. what appeals to me even more than the romantic images on these old cards is reading the letters that were written for loved ones, now long gone. it's amazing to me that i can hold in my hand a bit of card stock from a hundred years ago and read about the lives of strangers in their own and often exquisite handwriting, catching just a glimpse of their lives, yet sometimes a meaningful glimpse. i love old things... can you have a nostalgia for something you've never experienced? sometimes i wish i'd been born a hundred years ago!
