Vintage Valentines

I've been collecting vintage valentines for years.  Sometimes I buy them at antique stores, but most of them came from an estate sale.  I bought bags of them... someone was very sentimental and kept all of them.  Every year I color copy a bunch and make my own valentines with them.

This year I made some banners and mailed them out...

A few years ago, I made this big heart out of foam core and mod podged the valentines on top.

The colors and illustrations are right up my alley.

The punny sentiments are cute too!

  1. Jenni,
    I love this post about the vintage valentines, it brought back such great memories. Yesterday, hubby and I went to the antique stores and I found some old valentines. I had to snatch them up at 50% off, but I only bought the teacher ones (I had to limit myself somehow, lol). Thanks for getting me inspired to look for some.
