VALENTINES IN THE MAILBOX

Valentine Card Decor

At our house, mailboxes are already overflowing with Valentine's cards.

Do you have the impression I must be very popular to receive so many Valentines?

I'm faking it to make up for when my Valentine card box at school didn't overflow!

We always had one girl in the class whose box wouldn't even close, because there were too many Valentines in it.

Every Valentine's Day, I dreamed my box would overflow too.

But now, I've received so many cards, I had to stick them in the vases!

I wonder how many of us, of a certain age, remember when some classmates got many valentines and others had so few?

I was so pleasantly surprised when my children were school age and a note was sent home prior to Valentine's Day reminding us that if our child wanted to participate in the classroom card exchange- a Valentine card was needed for every classmate. What a simple but thoughtful decision.

I think it is wonderful that you have a beautiful collection of Valentines and that you have found a way to display them and enjoy them. And, thank you for sharing with all of us. MM

anjillie, Thank you for your nice comment. You can find the little mailboxes at dollar stores and WalMart. They are usually just plain, and I stick a few hearts and/or ribbons on them. Glad you asked. I should have put that in the post.
