I remember those valentines. ♥️
Remember we would cut them out...and put them in the other kids handmade envelopes!
How hilarious, ~~Louise~~......
That soup sounds like Italian Wedding soup.....delish!
Enjoy your day......
Are you buried in snow?
Cheers!
Linda:o)

I just send the grandkids a box of those kiddie valentines, Linda. I'm secretly hoping they send me one, lol...I thought of Italian Wedding Soup also when I saw that recipe. I was delighted that it went with today's theme:)

We were very lucky here in central PA, we have snow but, we are not buried in it, thank goodness.

I will be making this , love all the ingredients , so that must mean yummy . Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend . :)

I'm pretty sure I remember that first valentine! Great recipes, and the Wedding Belle Cocktail is new to me. I'm thinking of doing a bunch of Dubonnet cocktails this summer in the Summer Sippin' Series, and this would fit in perfectly!

Alida said...

So lovely those cards! And those cupid breadsticks very yummy. Are you celebrating for Valentine? We might buy some fish and celebrate at home.. easy with the children!

Marjie said...

Those breadsticks are adorable! Maybe I should try that next Friday. The soup sounds good, too.

And we got 10" of snow on Wednesday. That's better than my kids in West Chester, who had ice, and lost power. Everyone keeps saying there's snow coming on Sunday, but they're cagey as to how much, or when, or whatever. Well, maybe it's better to say snow's likely, and then have everyone thinking they dodged a bullet if it doesn't arrive, right? Hope you have a great weekend.

Poppy Crocker said...

I love the old valentines. I'll miss seeing them after next week.

Guru Uru said...

These vintage valentines are the absolute cutest - so much better than the random cards and weird stuff that is available today :P

Cheers

Gloria Baker said...

aah your Vintage valentines are adorable Louise!!!

Dottie said...

Dear Louise,
How sweet are these vintage Valentines? I love them and remember them from when I was young. I remember getting them in a box and sending one to each of my classmates in school. Your recipe is really very nice and so perfect for Valentines Day. Cupid's Breadsticks are a lovely way to share your Valentines with your special someone! Love the shapes..The drink, I have never seen this one before, and I really love it. I could use one now, never mind the Wedding Bells. It looks delicious. Wonderful and fun post, thanks for sharing with us...Have a blessed weekends...Dottie :)

Wishing you a happy Valentine's day in advance!

Johanna GGG said...

love this series - would love to see the picture of the cowboy running scared that could be paired with that first image :-) and the breadsticks are v cute idea

~~louise~~ said...

Yes Nee, the soup does sound a lot like Italian Wedding Soup. The only difference may be those turkey meatballs, lol...It's not only a belly warmer, it's a heart warmer too!

~~louise~~ said...

I really wanted that first Valentine to go up at the beginning of this series, John. I'm glad I waited until I found an "appropriate" recipe:) I was surprised to to find that cocktail. I've never heard of it either. Summer? Bring it on and yes, Dubonnet cocktails could use a bit of reviving! I'm looking forward to the Summer Sippin' already. (and some sunshine too:)

~~louise~~ said...

I actually saw shaped breadsticks like those right after I posted this, Alida. The only difference was there wasn't any arrow:) I won't be celebrating Valentine's Day at home this year, Alida. But, I will be posting the final post in this Valentines & Vittles series on Valentine's Day!

~~louise~~ said...

Right Marjie!!!
They say it was all a "rumor" now. Hmmm, I wonder who could have started such a rumor? I heard there were parts of PA with no electric. Has it been fixed? We didn't get as much snow as you thank goodness. I am so thankful to my neighbor who surprises me by plowing the driveways. There is no way I could do both of them!!!

~~louise~~ said...

I'm so glad you have been enjoying Poppy. Thank you:)

~~louise~~ said...

I've been having such fun sharing, Uru. I'm delighted you are enjoying them!

~~louise~~ said...

Thanks Gloria. It has been such fun sharing them...

backroadjournal said...

The vintage Valentines bring back memories from elementary school when so much thought went into which card would go to the cutest boy in the class. :)

~~louise~~ said...

They are lovely aren't they Dottie:) I wouldn't mind having that drink about now too, although, I must say, a nice glass of wine surely warms my heart too:)

~~louise~~ said...

Why thank you, Mich, that's very sweet of you:)

~~louise~~ said...

That's exactly what I was thinking, Johanna, lol...I'm so glad you are enjoying these posts. Next Friday will be the last one for this year:)

~~louise~~ said...

Hi Karen!
Oh my, I do remember those days so well. I was rather shy in school but my younger sister really did go through much thought to pick out just the right card for the "cutest" boy:) Thanks for reminding me, Karen...

Rosita Vargas said...

Se ve muy adorable ¡¡ Viva el dìa del Amor,hugs,hugs.

T.W. Barritt at Culinary Types said...

That wedding belle cocktail sounds lovely, and I think I have all the ingredients. I'm assuming I don't have to take the plunge to make the cocktail, right?

Savannah Granny said...

Hi Louise, Pray you are staying warm. That soup is a perfect choice for a cold wintery day. Just love that that drink recipe, would be great about now. Sleepless in Savannah just now.
Bob is cooking for a few days but I hope to be in high gear to make those breadsticks by Friday. Thanks for sharing and I just adore those vintage valentines. It is amazing how many people are flooded with childhood memories just seeing them. Love to you and Marion. Ginger

Cakelaw said...

I love these vintage Valentines! I cannot get enough of them. Hope you have a wonderful Valentines Day.

Barbara said...

(Kudos to your daughter, Louise, and I've never heard of minions either!)
I remember sitting at a table in grade school, cutting out hearts and adding lace and all sorts of things to handmade valentines. I suppose they don't do that anymore. Sigh.

Debra Eliotseats said...

I don't know what I love more----the vintage valentines or the vintage recipes?!?!?!?

kitchen flavours said...

Hi Louise,
Thanks for your CNY wishes! I came back a few days ago, but have been busy visiting some relatives and friends ever since I got back! Just visited my hubby's grandaunt today, who is 98 yrs old, and her memory is as sharp as before!
Looking at her today, reminds me of Marion!
The cupid breadstick with the arrow looks cute!
The Country Wedding Soup sounds like a comforting soup to have in your cold weather right now! Keep warm, Louise!

Brenda Perez said...

Great Disney card! I enjoyed your post very much. Thank you for sharing!

~~louise~~ said...

Día de San Valentín es el día del amor no lo es, Rosita? ¿Celebra el día en su país? Muchas gracias por su visita.

~~louise~~ said...

Unfortunately, T.W. I don't have all the ingredients. I thought I did but alas, I don't. No plunge necessary:) A sip for me would be nice though:)

~~louise~~ said...

Hi Ginger,
I can honestly say we are staying warm, in the house of course:) I totally agree about the drink, Ginger. Dubonnet makes for a lovely nightcap. I thought I had some in the house but I was so wrong. I will be restocking:)

Bob is cooking? Are you feeling okay? I do hope so. I'll be looking forward to your post on Friday no matter what you share! Stay well, Ginger:)

~~louise~~ said...

Aren't they fun, Cakelaw? Friday will be the last of them until next year...

~~louise~~ said...

Thanks Barbara. My daughter is almost back to her normal self:) She is also "teaching" me about Minions. There seems to be quite a variety of them, lol...

We usually made Valentine's too but I was much to shy most of my childhood to actually give any to any boys or girls for that matter. I just got a couple in the mail from my grandchildren and although I sent them a box each of the store bought variety they made them with their own little hands, lace and all! Priceless:)

~~louise~~ said...

Take them all, Debra and enjoy!

~~louise~~ said...

Thanks JOyce we are keeping warm and cosy here in PA. It's a challenge sometimes especially when I try to convince marion to stay inside, lol...We ventured out yesterday though:) 98 years young, oh my! Marion is catching up. she'll be 94 in March:)

Enjoy your holiday, Joyce. "See" you when you return with lots of goodies:)

~~louise~~ said...

Welcome Brenda!
I'm so glad you enjoyed visiting. You have lovely postcards on your blog. I will return for more viewing soon...Drop by any ol' time:)

~~louise~~ said...

Oh Debra, Thank you!!! That article is a huge help and exactly what I was looking for!!! Thank you!

T.W. Barritt at Culinary Types said...

Well, I can now confirm that the Wedding Belle is quite the catch! Mine is not quite as red though ...

~~louise~~ said...

You made it! I'm tempted to go out right now to get some Dubonnet! However, Mother Nature has "blessed" us with yet another blanket of snow! I do hope you will be sharing it one day, T.W. Remember that sip for me:)

openid said...

Those breadsticks are adorable!

~~louise~~ said...

One of those ideas I wish I would have dreamt up myself, Angela:)

CQUEK said...

These look absolutely divine
