Happy Valentine's Day Week


My mom made me this Valentine several years ago, it is one of my favorite Valentine's. 

Hello Friends,

Happy Valentine's Day to You!

I was gifted my grandma's autographs book. I absolutely love it. 

Today I will share some of the quotes in it from her friends. They may just be what you need to create your Valentine this year. 

The quotes are from my Grandma Vida's Autograph book ~ 1945 - 1946  


Yours till table legs wear sox 

Roses are red, Violets are blue, but none of the flowers are sweeter then you

When you grow up and have twin's don't come over to my house for safety pins

Girls like tulips in the park, but boys like two lips in the dark

The higher the mountain the cooler the breeze, the younger the couple the tighter the squeeze

Have a great week friends.





  1. The autograph books are such rare treasures. I know you love having them! The heart is pretty too! Happy Valentine's day my friend!

  2. Oh, these are delightful little sayings that are in your grandma's autograph books, Carla. It's so special that this was passed on to you. I chuckled with the "girls like tulips" one. I'll have to write that quote down haha. And what a treasure that red heart is that your mom made you. So cute with the red fabric and buttons. I can see why it's one of your favorites.

    Happy Valentine's Day to my precious friend.
