Vintage Valentine Card Party


Joan at Anything Goes Here is having a vintage valentine card party, so when you're done looking at all of my cards, head over there for a list of all the other participants!

Please click on the pictures if you want a closer look. I didn't know how I was going to photograph all of these cards, so I decided to "pose" them in different spots around the house!

The one with the doggie on it is one of my favorites!

I love this one because of her gorgeous parasol.

I think the two cards with the picket fences on them are in my top ten of favorites. And the girl with the watering can!

Any excuse to include a picture of my pink radio! Actually if you enlarge this one, it makes perfect sense to display it there!

My one and only valentine postcard, on the right. Definitely need to add more of those to the collection!

I also love the more contemporary cards too. Love that poodle in the middle, and is that Sunbonnet Sue on the left?

Can you see the glitter on the one in the middle? I really should give it to my Mother for valentine's day, but she doesn't care about old cards, so I'll keep it!

This last one is for you Joan! You're one SMART cookie too, and I want to thank you for being the hostess with the mostest!
Ok, so that's it. That's just some of my collection. Thank you for looking at them, and now please head over to Joan's to see LOTS more vintage valentine cards!
Happy Valentine's Day!!!

You really are a collector aren't you? I can't believe you have so many, and you said it was just some of them! Love the way you displayed them, especially the one on the pink raido. That's really cute.

Hi Carol,
You have some really cute Valentines in your collection. And that pink radio...to die for! I just love anything pink. I have an old vintage pink push button phone in my shop and it still works beautifully.
