I know I am a few days late but was wondering around the house taking up any valentine items and remembered this one out on the sunroom shelf.

I picked this up at Renningers quite a while ago and the amazing thing was the man had a whole carton of them and they were birthday, valentine, easter, etc. Each one was in its own box and as I started to open them they were all from the same man - "Fred". I wish he had dated them but I have never seen these before. They were made by different companies and all the same size each in its own box 8 x 10".

The center portion is satin and they were in excellent condition. I can imagine Fred coming home with this and the Mrs. saying thank you and the next day it went into the carton with all the rest.

I only bought one as they were 5.00 each and I thought Valentine would be a good time to have one. Has any one seen these before? This one was made by Hallmark.
I received a kiss and a card from my sweetie. 51 years ago on Feb. 13th. I received my engagement ring and was married the next August. Still has happy as ever. I picked a good one.

Beautiful card. Great valentine memories. To remember engagement. Yes I am enjoying "distant hours". Agree started out slow. I guess I do not know how to set up email. Any tips?

Congrats on doing it right the first time Freda...I didn't fare so well with the first one.. If I would have kept him we would have been married 52 years... I can't imagine that. But I picked a REAL winner the second time and it's been 36 really happy years// See you soon ... Gerry K.

I'd be willing to bet Harv would say he picked a good one too!
