A Valentine from Days Gone By

I had a lovely surprise this week when I received this old Valentine’s card from my boyfriend’s grandparents, still in its original envelope. There are so many little details that make this so interesting to me, the copperplate script, the penny stamp, the hand embroidered flowers… I love the idea of all of the stories this card might have seen, I wonder what happened to William and his mystery lady?

      That’s a great idea! I tried a quick google but there wasn’t anything obvious, Ancestry might even give me dates with an unusual surname. Just think of all the cool collections you’ll have to show your grandchildren!
