Vintage Valentine Cards

I collect lots of things (hence my overflowing craft room) but vintage valentine cards take up very little storage space and they've been fun to find in estate sale land this past year. 
Wouldn't you agree that the graphics are just so much better than modern style valentines?

 It's been fun to find different ways to display them.

 I purchased this metal card wreath after Christmas on clearance and they've been a great way to display a whole bunch.

Hard to believe that Valentine's day will be here and another collection will get tucked away.

 Happy collecting! Happy weekend, friends!

Oh my -- those are so adorable! I'm so ancient I probably handed some of those out when I was very, very, very young! :) Hope you have a great weekend!

i agree vintage ones are better. Now they are all character or have a treat inside. Kids love the treat ones. Hope you are doing well. Xo

Very cute Kim! The metal card wreath is perfect for your collection! But you probably need a few more right? :) Have a great weekend!

I remember passing those sweet cards out in school, it was such a secret to send one to that boy that you really liked.

Happy Weekend.

I love my vintage cards, too! What a great idea to put the vintage teacher ones on a black chalkboard. Oh boy, why didn't I think of that! I do love the little Indian girl, and the vintage stove one. Happy Valentine's Day to your special little family.
