A Victorian Valentine

Few things are as romantic as sweet little Victorian valentines.

I ordered these from Bella Sera at Etsy, they cost $5.50 for 6.

I settled down with a cup of tea and the 1989 Victoria, and thought you’d like to share these memories.

Aren’t these stand-up cards terrific?  Imagine sweeping into the drawing-room, your heavy skirts dragging over the carpeting, and finding your husband by the fire in his cut-away tuxedo and cravat holding one of these for you?

May all your dreams come true this Valentine’s Day!

Until next time, stay shabby!
