Happy Valentine's Day!
Enjoy some lovelies from the "Love's Little Messenger" exhibit at the MSU Museum.
Who could resist these elaborate cards?
And these vintage postcards --
oh, I'd love to have those in my collection!
As a writer, I couldn't resist this one!
Some of these were awfully pretty...
I liked these a lot...
...and these brought back memories of days gone by. Did you make Valentine's boxes for school? I still remember mine!
These "Penny Dreadfuls" were insulting valentine's.
And some are awfully funny -- I don't know if you can read the words, but the graphics alone get the message across!
Funny cards always make me smile...
And some were on the suggestive side!
And this one was just cute!
Finally, I couldn't leave without saluting "Man's Best Friend" (and lots of women's!)...
And a salute to the four-legged companion in my household!
And this might be my favorite!
As for my two-legged Valentine -- well, we plan on having a wonderful time too!
And you? You're all my valentines! Happy Valentine's Day!
NOTE: All of these vintage valentine's were from the MSU Museum's collection. The exhibit continues through early March if you live in the area. I think I may use some of these in some tags or ATCs. What do you think? Feel free!
