Vintage Valentines

"I'm staying at Crystal's shop right now but looking for a new home, can I be your special Valentine?"
Vintage Taxidermy Weasel - $225

These lovely old Valentines below were brought into my store recently. The fellow's mother collected vintage Valentines throughout the years and had these professionally framed. All but one have a typed label on the back with the date of the Valentine that is under the glass.
Three hearts with winged cherubs and roses, 24" x 9", c. 1915

"To My Sweetheart" & "With Love's Greeting", 11" x 13", c. 1909


Fold out Heart, 12" x 15", c. 1915


"My Love to Thee", 26" x 9"


"You can love me on Valentine's Day!"

So many lovely things for Valentines, but out of all I would prefer the crow. What a wicked little dead gift to receive, still my heart;)

Such a wonderful blog you have.
