Vintage Valentine-o-rama!

The intertubes are abuzz with vintage Valentine goodness this week. Just check out the fabulous Two Crazy Crafters where Twyla and Lindsey have been sharing their fantastic collection of vintage Valentines plus new ways to use the images to achieve maximum cuteness.

Also, my craftastic friend Dana (better known as Crafty Minx) made and stitched the most delicious vintage Valentine embroidery patterns which were featured on Feeling Stitchy this week.

Not wanting to miss out on the action, I thought I'd share a few 1960's era Valentines from my collection:

1960s valentines

pushing for you

stuck on you

swell combination

"shoe" enough

If you're in need of more vintage Valentines for your last minute V Day crafting, you'll find some darling ones at Vintage Holiday Crafts and some sweet ones here too.

I especially like the glue one. So cute these valentines are! I swear I had the one with the safe when I was a kid. Gosh, maybe I had all of them at one time. I'm sure I'm not the only kid who got to create the valentines bag in elementary school...the one that you hung off the front of your desk and each kid put a valentine in for each kid? I loved valentines day. I especially loved the homemade valentines then. They always seemed somehow more special and lots cooler than all the other valentines.
