These vintage Valentines are just a hoot. I can’t get over how precious they are. I want to meet the people who wrote the copy.

I am now having a nostalgic moment of decorating a box to bring to school for exchanging valentines. It was always so difficult to choose which theme to go with. What a fun tradition.

What are you doing for your Valentine this year? I’ve got a few things up my sleeve…

    These are so amazing! I wish they made them like this, still! I read an article recently about a woman that has been collecting vintage Valentine’s for 40 years and has been told she has the best collection in the world – imagine that! Her name’s Nancy Rosin should you wish to get on the Googes.
    I’ve gone all crazy stalker lady and stuck my friends’ heads in a heart…

    I love the ones with the mermaid and with the mummies! So adorable. The last time I was visiting my parents, I found a box of old Snoopy & Woodstock Valentines from when I was in elementary school :)
