Valentine's Day Pillowcases from Let's Get Together

 

Hundreds of years ago when my husband and I were dating, I came up with this cheesy idea for Valentine’s Day. I wanted to decorate a pillowcase and have his mom (he was working on the family farm while attending college) slip it on his pillow for Valentine’s Day.  It said, “Heard the latest?
