COLLECTION #162: Valentines and Vintage School Books
I would gaze at my cards for hours, looking at the cute images of cowgirls, birds, kitties, and the like. One memorable card was from my 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Owen, who gave me a Mickey Mouse card. What I loved wasn't the card, but her beautiful handwriting. The way she wrote my name made me feel so special.
Even at that early age, I preferred the cards printed on heavy, matte stock, to the cheaper, shinier cards.
