Having jumped the gun and posted this celebration day a week too early – what can I think of today?
Last week was all about my modern day designs so lets look at the history of Valentines Day and what was in vogue in years gone by.
Valentine’s Day first became associated with romantic love in the days of Chaucer in the Middle Ages who wrote about LOVE BIRDS .
However, it was in Victorian times that lovers embraced the day by expressing their love for each other with flowers, chocolates and other gifts.
Valentine cards were originally hand made and, in Victorian times were embellished with lace and ribbons
Today our cards are manufactured in huge numbers and cater for every need but, the beautiful old cards made with love and affection will always be the real thing.
Here is my computer made card for you all.
Now go and visit our hostess Beverley and see all the other Pinkies.
