Southern Valentine

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).

    1. 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!

  1. 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!

    1. 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.

      1. 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.

  2. 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.

    1. 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.

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

  4. Adorable Leslie Anne, we can’t help it if life is just better in the South 🙂 Love your sea shell and Mardi Gras hearts, and the new Mardi-tines Day holiday!!
