What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice and all that’s nice,
And that are little girls made of.

What are young women made of?
Ribbons and laces, and sweet pretty faces,
And that are young women made of.








The images above were found while antiquing with Jo in Williamsburg.  The top picture is dated 1887 and there is no date on the bottom one.  I would guess by the clothes and the flooring about 1940s or 1950s.  Anyone else have any guesses?


I also picked up a few vintage Valentines.  I love the faces on some of them and the kewpie like cheeks.   



Did you send Valentines when you were in school?  Do you still send some today?
