Valentine stockings and airmail love letters…

IMG_8633Oh, yes we did make Valentine stockings!

I did some research; I don’t just willy-nilly do these things, lol, and although not very common,Valentine stockings do date back to the 1800’s.

The ones I found researching online were a little creepy. So, I chose to just make mine traditional stockings with Valentine inspired patterns. Right now they are filled with one of my favorite things old Airmail love letters complete with lipstick prints from my mom, they were sent by a military love in the 60’s, and vintage Valentines from the 50’s-60’s that were sent to my Grandma from her nephews when they were just wee people.

Now go make you some Valentines!
