January is the month of love at Birdhouse Books, as I list lots of great vintage Valentines. I really enjoy working with vintage Valentines for children, and have posted photos and links many times over the past few years. I wanted to share a few previous blog links with you (photos of the fun vintage cards at each link):
1940's Valentines for children - My favorite is the little Shirley Temple girl with her Scottie dog.
Baby Boomer Die-Cut Valentines - Especially love the "hoppy" frog card.
Photos of vintage Valentines - Be sure to see the mechanical tango dancers, and the unique older handmade card.
More 1940's Valentines - The soda fountain is just too cute!
1920's to 1930's vintage Valentines - The Red Riding Hood card is so charming!
1950's to 1960's Die-Cut Valentines - They are all cute, but I think I like the bowling Terrier dog most of all.
Baby Boomer Valentines - The top card pictured, of the little girl painting with her dog, is especially cute.
Whitney Made Valentines - These cards from the 1920's to 1930's are among the most beautiful, with detailed illustrations. The last card pictured, of a little boy and girl under an umbrella, is so sweet.
More Baby Boomer Vintage Valentines - The first card features a little girl and her Dachshund. I collect vintage Dachshund cards and have one of these in my collection.
Sweet 1950's Valentines - The little girl painting is an especially sweet illustration.
Vintage Valentines for Children - The first and last cards pictured are mechanical cards featuring children and dogs, with Charles Twelvetrees illustrations.
Elephant Bride Valentine - This card sold long ago, but I'm glad the photo is still here at the blog. I believe this is a Jason Freixas illustration. It was a spectacular card!
Anthropomorphic Train Valentine - The anthropomorphic cards are fun!
Carousel Valentine - I love vintage carnival and fair items, so find this especially appealing.
Mechanical Valentine of a Little Girl and Her Dog - A little girl plays the piano while her dog helps by "singing."
And, of course, if you want to see more Valentines, you'll find hundreds at Birdhouse Books.
