Old Valentines With Hands




I purchased these from an antique shop in Essex, Massachusetts around 1980. I especially like the hands. And also the sentiment on the green bow: "Far from thee - be every care." The fan-shaped card has a red yarn ruffle.

Wishing you all a happy valentines day for this Postcard Friendship Friday!

I have a few of these, and what I love in addition to the hands are the old-fashioned phrases, like "Truly thine." So dear.
