Will you be my Vintage Valentine?

P1010009bf.jpg

I have no trouble promoting pinks and reds any day of the year, but get heated up around about February 1st, with Valentine’s Day looming. Have you had a look at my Etsy shop recently? It’s positively bursting with these colors!

And, as extra incentive to take a look at these beauties, through February 7, take 20% off anything primarily pink or red in my Etsy shop, no coupon needed. ❤️💘❤️💘❤️💘

Here are a couple of my favorites:

This gorgeous pour of magenta silk satin was created by Carlye in the late 1950s

While on the subject of pink and hearts, I want to remind you that the Pink Heart Shop section of my Etsy store is stocked with vintage with all proceeds benefitting Dress for Success worldwide.

(And yes, my model Kendra and I were inspired by The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel when we photographed that last set above! We are both diehard Maisel fans!)

My Funny Valentines

I’m back with another load of vintage Valentines, the type that have great drawings and great puns or even double entendres. I can “television” when I see it - you’re on the “channel” to my heart...that sort! All my vintage clothing photos are ones I had on hand...that all made “grape” sense to “pear” with the vintage Valentines.

This may seem OLD HAT but —
Will you ad-DRESS this issue
with me? 


If you think you saw a similar post a couple years ago you’re right—only now there are many more, so please catch them all in my slideshow {sound up for Sinatra}!

I love a certain type of vintage Valentine, the type that has a great drawing and a great pun or even double entendre.  (I can “television” when I see it - you’re on the “channel” to my heart...that sort!)
