A Nostalgic Valentine's Day Giveaway
I love old Valentine's Day cards. I still have many from my grade school days signed 1958. (Oops, I just told my age!)
I've collected Victorian cards for many years and on occasion I buy new cards that look Victorian and have Victorian sentiments. I don't find too many that are gentile and poetic anymore.
A few years ago, my husband gave me one that had this phrase printed in it:
I never knew before such a love as you have made me feel..........KEATS
It's possible he picked out the card for the pretty front and never read the poetry included, but I choose to think not. Isn't that what most women want? To think their man is romantic? So on this special day of the year, February 14th, I'll go with that sentiment.
Well, as most of you know, I am moving. That means heavy duty cleaning out of drawers and extra "stuff." Now I don't consider my Valentines extra stuff, but I did notice that I have a LOT of them and some are duplicates sooooo.......
I am offering six of them to you as a giveaway. Here's two ways to win:
1. Leave a comment telling me about your favorite Valentine's Day (romantic or funny)
2. For a second chance to win, sign up as an e-mail subscriber with Feedburner or become a Google Follower (see sidebar.) Then leave a second comment telling me you have subscribed or are already a subscriber. The second comment is important in order to gain two entries.
3. If you're not a blogger, be sure to leave your contact e-mail address like this to avoid spammers: pianananna(at)gmail(dot)com. If I can't reach you, your name will be disqualified, and I will draw again.
This contest ends on Friday, Feb.6th at midnight EST. I will choose a winner based on my favorite answer on Saturday. You will have three days to contact me. Good Luck! I can't wait to hear your stories!!!
