A stash of vintage Valentines, photographed from my aunt's childhood album - sharing them this week (10 each day - remember to click on the photos to enlarge), for those that might want to do a little print, cut and paste. These are all from the late 30's/early 40's. A friend told me the other night that when you received a puppy/kitty/cute animal in your Valentines bag, you KNEW you were special - here's just that and a little more, including two of the creepiest I've seen...
Cuteness and curls ala Shirley Temple - and then there's this..
Obviously designed for those deemed "not puppy worthy".
Probably not intended to scare (check out the surprised faces on the little hearts they hold) - maybe designed along the lines of the Punch and Judy puppets. Their eyes and jaws move with a flick of their frightened little Valentines, adding to the creep factor. I like creepy, but I think I'd much rather be puppy worthy!
More to follow (adorable ones, I promise), every day until the 14th, my sweets - enjoy!
