Vintage Valentines

I read a post last year about vintage valentines, and I knew I had to have some.  I bought these on ebay in November. I paid $12 and got a grouping of 26 valentines.  I can't tell you how much I love these.  The pictures and the silly sayings just warm my heart. Notice the cowboy above, it says "WHOOP IT UP VALENTINE!...I CRAVE ACTION." I LOVE IT. 

I made some little holders out of old blocks and scrapbook paper.  I glued the paper onto the blocks, sanded the edges, applied some gel stain and drilled a small hole in the top.  Then using left over wire from the fairy wings and my old jewelry pliers, I made some little wire stands. I'm kinda loving these too.  They were an easy, cheap and fun project.  

I've scattered the valentines through the house. 


My son loves looking at the tank. 

"The Mower I think of you the more I like you, Valentine" What?




It's been fun to have people look through them laugh at the ones that don't make sense and choose a favorite. 


The rest of our Valentines Day Decor is pretty much the same as last year. I hope it's looks tasteful, I worry after reading this post and this post, at Just a Girl. I shouldn't care cause I like it.

yep, now I need vintage valentines. I had already decided this past year that for Christmas I will focus on vintage. Now maybe it appears I should do vintage for all holidays :)
