Dearest Girl, 1926




This weekend, at the antique store in my hometown, I found a binder of love letters. I am dying to share them with you this week before Valentine's Day.

Click to enlarge. They are a little difficult to decipher but definitely worth the effort.

If you liked reading this let me know...I have so many more!

A bit off the subject, but I want to acknowledge the sweet comments made about you at Carol Spiniski's blog found at raisedincotton.typepad.com/ in her "Gratitude from A to Z". You deserve it!

Don't take this the wrong way -- I love that you have these and are sharing them -- but it makes my heart ache to know they ended up in a store.

And then what happened? Is there a response? I'm so glad that these treasures found a perfect home with you, Amy. Thank you for sharing!

"Why yes" this is precious.

Debe said...

Yes, the letter is the Dearest thing. And your living room is also dear as are you! It is so much fun to share your excitement over all the wonderful things going on in your life! You are such a busy girl!! Used probably does make more sense....sadly. But it would quickly be your cheerios on the floor and then who know the difference?? I am enjoying your posts so much!!

You really did luck out on this one. Every time I visit an antiques store I look for letters or journals. So far I have found a grand total of zero.

I'd love to see some more of these! I bought a bag of love letters this past summer. It makes me feel a little voyeuristic, but they are so sweet. My husband refers to them as "asthma inducing moldy letters."
Harumph.....

Love these old fashioned letters. I would love to find some in french

The Clever Pup said...

Wow what a cool find.

I found letters in my under my floor boards secretly written (and not sent)by a young guy to his crush. They are ABSOLUTELY filthy.

We get a chuckle out them tho'. I wonder what we should do with them when we move.

I love reading them! Love, love, love it. It makes me a little sad though, to think that the woman who cherished these and tied them in a blue satin ribbon is now gone. Thank goodness you could save and cherish them for her.
