Happy Valentine’s Day.
Enjoy the beautiful handmade lace valentine above from 1845. And for your reading pleasure, a Valentine’s Day poem from the collection that was written circa 1832 from John Blake to Mary Ann Blake:
“If plough and cart can please your heart
with milking cows and swine
Come hear to me and you shall see
I’ve plenty Valentine
Good corn my fields in plenty yields
My barns are filled with stone
Fine sheep in pens and cocks and hens
And chickens rounds the door
Pudding and Beef Provisions chief
And up the Chimney Bacon
Sweet Valentine if you’ll be mine
You’ll never be mistaken”
