A Sweet Vintage Valentine

I am linking this post to  Very Merry Vintage Style.  This is a fun link up to show off your favorite vintage Valentines!

I recently received this card in the mail, and was thinking it was a reproduction, it was in such pristine condition…

1940's Valentine 1

Is she not the cutest little Valentine?????  Then I turned it over and saw the signature….

There are not too many children this day and age that would even know what a fountain pen was, let alone be able to use one!  I have a few cards from this same seller on Ebay and Arleen is in a few of them and they are definitely vintage!!!! 

Even in the 40’s they apparently had valentines for children in packs. :)

This is such a cute Valentine! What a cute puppy and I love the sewing theme. I have a friend who quilts and I think I'll use this image to make a sweet Valentine for her. Thanks for sharing--and for linking up to my vintage Valentine party!

G'morn, Sandy ~ I love the new pens that write like a fountain pen ... we grew up with the ink wells, pigtail soaking ink ... I couldn't stand the smell of the ink.

Love that card ... I have to dig out Harold's from his youth.

Sorry about all your plumbing issues. Hope things settle down for you, you've sure had a load these past couple of months.

Have a beautiful weekend ~

Huggers, my friend ~
