Vintage Valentine Vignette

This is the first year I have put together something vintage for February 14th. It all started when I found this silver heart-shaped tray at Value Village for $4. Of course I had to fill it with cinnamon hearts - my favorite, so I stock up since it's only available this time of year.

Then I popped by my local antique shop, asking if they had any vintage Valentines. What luck! The owner said he JUST found a box of them an hour or so before I came by! Awesome - I bought them all! They are just wonderful. Here's a peek at my favorites:

These two fold out for a 3D effect

Cutie pies... the little girl moves back and forth on a metal eyelet

The little boy at the table looks like he attaches to another card. His arm moves up and down.

These two goats butt heads when the tab is pulled!

This tab pull moves the lovers back and forth to meet in the middle

I just love the old graphics... put altogether in a display with the silver trays and candy, and viola! A Vintage Valentine Vignette!

Sharing with:


  1. Love your sweet vignette. I don't have any vintage Valentine's myself... I guess I will have to keep my eyes peeled for some now...


  2. I like how you displayed the ones with the goats butting heads. What an unusual Valentine to give to someone.


  3. Very pretty! I love cinnamon hearts too. I have never decorated for V-Day. It wasn't something my ex-h and I celebrated, and my fiance' is always on the road now.
