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!
