Happy Valentine's Day!
I spoke with my daughter yesterday and she said that she and our granddaughter were going to work on her Valentines to bring to school today. Lily is 3 years old and in preschool. Do you remember the excitement you felt writing out your Valentines, and wondering if you were going to receive one from that special "someone"? We'd decorate a shoe box and cut a slit in the lid. Then we'd put the box on our desks and walk around the room, stuffing a valentine in each box. Of course, I'd have a "special" one set aside for the boy I liked!
I found some vintage Valentines. Some are cute, some are questionable.
Under the "CUTE" category:
I did see ANOTHER Valentine along this same line, but it was a picture of "bloomers" hanging on the line, with the same words. Somehow it seemed wrong!
For some reason, meat played a big part as the theme of Valentines from the 30's and 40's.
Gangsters and guns were also popular.
Take a look at these totally inappropriate Valentines! I'm sure they seemed fine back in the day!
Can we talk about the sexist ones?
|If Jim told me this, I'd throw the shoe AT him!|
Now the kid's Valentines are mostly TV characters like Dora, Sponge Bob, Hannah Montana, etc. I found some unusual, pushing-the-envelope, one-of-a-kind Valentines to show you how far we've come!
Here are four quite different ones.
Have a wonderful day!
