valentine decor

I'm so excited about my latest vintage finds! I recently bought a few vintage Valentines on Ebay and then a few more at a local antique store.

As I opened one of the valentine cards I purchased, I discovered an adorable little handmade/handwritten card tucked inside the package.It says:

Birds and Flowers all agree
that you are just the one for me

I love that the valentines are addressed to and from girls named "Pauline", "Doris", and "Eunice".

Can't you just see them now? Sweet little girls in their bobby socks and saddle oxfords choosing just the right card for their BFF? Oh...

While I was at the Antique store searching for Valentine cards, I found some great old skeleton keys to use with my decoupaged/papered hearts. I'm obsessed with vintage keys these days. I especially love the ones with rusty, old patina to them.

Looking at those keys makes me wonder who owned them and the doors they opened...Once upon a time...

There's something so romantic and interesting about Vintage things, don't you think?











Don't you just loooove Valentine's Day?
