Vintage Valentines ~

Every year I try to think of a good way to display my collection of vintage valentines, this year I decided to put them where I spend a lot of time, Voila! The kitchen. 

Here they are, on the window shelf under my favorite Valentine's Day wreath. I love this little birdhouse, wish I could find another one, I just might have to make one next year.

I used some flower frogs to help them stand and although Miss Twiggley has "visited" them a few times she hasn't done any damage. This is one of her favorite places to sit and watch the birds through the window,  flitting through the orange tree outside.

I have really enjoyed this and like all holiday decor I hate to think of taking it down, but Easter is just around the corner ~ hooray!

Wishing you a wonderful, romantic, happy, and sweet, Valentine's Day

Thank you for visiting

  1. I love vintage valentines,too. I have all of my grandmothers. I think she kept every one she received. When I was a child we would look at them together. She called them her memories.

  7. That is fabulous. I always see them at antique stores, and loved them, but thought, "what would I do with them?" Now I'm inspired to buy all sorts of holiday vintage cards. Thank you so much for this inspiration. Happy Valentine's Day :)

  8. Those are truly lovely!! Miss Twiggley would NEVER ;^) disturb them I'm sure :^)
    My Mom sent a victorian style pop-up Valentine to my Dad many years ago. I have it in a shadow box frame in my kitchen. It always brings a smile!!
    Blessings to you,
