Vintage Valentines...

The special day is past, but I still wanted to post my favorite Valentine cards. I found these at my formerly favorite antique store. Sadly, it is now closed. I am sad...My husband and my checkbook are glad.

Anyway, I think we should go back to sending these kind of Valentines!

The most honest Valentine I've ever seen...



This one looks so good in my grandma's art deco frame and is quite romantic in spite of the kiddie picture.
The verse: "Give me but thy love and I envy none beneath the sky."


And this one...in tiny print: "So much of health, So much of wealth, Naught to annoy, Much to enjoy"  Now THAT'S true love!

These were so much fun. Vintage & Love go together so well.
