The History of the Valentine....

Happy Valentines Day!


If anyone`s interested in finding out where this idea came from, I found this at
http://www.techdirect.com/valentine/history.html


Ever since I was a kid, I`ve loved Kewpie Dolls, they`re so adorable! This valentine below was done by Rose Cecil O’Neill (1874-1944) a famous children`s illustrator who actually created them. You can see more and read about her here. http://www.ortakales.com/illustrators/Oneill.html





So much for celebrating Valentines Day with the nice dinner I was going to make. It will have to wait until Friday now because I`m working tonight :(

Sorry to hear you had to work tonight. But since I believe every day should be Valentines Day (why set aside one day a year to tell friends and family you love them), Friday should work just as well.

Happy Valentines Day. Hugs and kisses.
