Southern Valentine

February 13, 2015


Shell heartIt’s not that Southern love is necessarily any better than other regions . . .


Love y'all

we just have a different way of expressing it.

“Gimme’ some sugar” isn’t about the white granular substance you buy in a bag at Piggly Wiggly.

And of course, Rhett Butler had a way with words (swoon).

    Oh my gosh, loving these southern valentines! Butter on my grits is just too darn cute!! And how clever is the word shawl? lol!

    • Leslie Anne says:

      Thanks. Those are actually shells I’ve found on our local beaches, and I took the photo on top of an old trunk I have.

  • Cute,cute Valentine post. I love that picture of you and Lois Lane. It always makes me smile.

    • Leslie Anne says:

      That Lois is such a ham!

  • I love all the Southern valentine, especially the one saying “You’re the butter in my grits”. 🙂
    Hope you have a great Valentine’s Day.

    • Leslie Anne says:

      Thanks, sugah pie, you too!

  • In my NC house, I covered walls in a guest bath with framed antique Valentines. Your post made me nostalgic but I think I sold all of them. Happy Valentines Day!

    • Leslie Anne says:

      What a pretty idea! I remember my grandmother having a box of old Valentines like this I used to sit and look through like they were a magazine. I truly detest the “new” flimsy, non-imaginative Valentines they have in stores now! That makes me a Valentine’s Day Grinch, I guess.

      • I agree I collect old valentines and I just love them. With all the technology today why
        can’t they make beautiful ones like they used to.

        • Leslie Anne says:

          I think you’re on to something, Judy! Certainly, some company somewhere makes beautiful Valentines!

    • Leslie Anne says:

      Yes, it takes some of the steam out of it, knowing that a woman really wrote the line, but the way Clark Gable delivers it, always gives me a chill down my spine!
