For the most part I’ve never much cared for Valentine’s Day. Never really celebrating or decorating, with the mild exception of using the holiday as an excuse to wear an excessive amount of pink and red. Over the years I’ve seen cute vintage valentines and antique shops and flea markets, but I mostly refrained from purchasing any. However after coming up with the “clothes line” idea for displaying my vintage Christmas cards, I thought it would be fun to do the same with valentines! So over the last month I’ve been shopping at various antique malls and even received a few as gifts, including many of the cute cowboy and cowgirl ones here are from Alison of The Vintage Darling. And while I’ve accumulated enough for a nice little banner, the rest of the house remains pretty normal, so I decided just to share with you a look at part of my collection, like I did with my vintage Christmas card collection, and hopefully this becomes another tradition as my collection grows.
I also fully realize some of these valentines are politically incorrect.
I hope you enjoyed this little peek at my collection! And that you have a lovely Valentine’s Day tomorrow!
