Callie Magee Antiques
I am a collector of old things. Some of them I sell to others who like me
want to preserve these old memories for the next generations.

the older the friendship, the keener the loss."

Today I will post on Valentine cards from older times.
I have a large collection of cards mainly from 1880's to 1910's.
Here I will show a few:
These are so beautiful.
Just a few minutes ago a lady who was visiting town today and all the 8 antique shops
asked if she could take a picture of the table I have decorated for Valentine's Day.
Of course I was pleased and said yes.
Here is one part of it.
And here another side:
Another card shown on my English Chippendale china.
Another few cards with a heart shaped baking pan.
Are they not sweet?

Well you see what I mean. I love these old cards. Many many were made in Germany.
But all are special and portray the day with perfect sentiment.
Happy Valentine's Day to you all.
