Remember bringing a valentine to your teacher? This tradition has been practiced throughout this century. Not only did you bring your teacher a pretty card, but you brought her a present too. You may have brought delicious chocolate candies in a beautiful satin-covered heart-shaped box adorned with a pretty silk rose (not plastic!) Of course, she was kind enough to share them with the children in the class. But the gift of choice was a pretty cotton hanky, perhaps with a scalloped edge and a pretty hearts and flowers design. And teachers, being the wonderful people they are, have SAVED all their pretty valentines over the years to remember you by. And now you can view some of those cards and think fondly of days gone by and the sweet teacher you so adored.
