VTT - Big Red Heart Valentines







Here I have some more Whitney valentine postcards. I think of all the valentine postcards that they made, my favorites are the ones with big red hearts. The first postcard is postmarked 1925. The others are undated but are from the same approximate time.

I have had the Snoopy planter for a long time, and it wasn't new when I got it. I found a picture of the same one on a Peanuts Collectibles website and learned that it is from the mid-1970s. It has a "Made in Japan" label and is 3 inches high and wide. The Peanuts Collectibles website has all sorts of Peanuts items but no postcards. I like Peanuts collectibles but limited myself to a few. There are so many that a collection of them can easily get out of hand.



I'm participating in Vintage Thingie Thursday

  4. Such sweet cards! I've been trying to figure out what it is that is so endearing and I think I know. Those pudgy faces and rosy cheeks!

  5. I love the rhymes on those cards. I had a bank just like your planter when I was a kid in the 70s. I'm sure it's still in my parents' house somewhere.

  17. Isn't it fun to see how Valentines reflect the era's in which they were made? I do love the old ones, and wish I had some of the ones from elementary school years. I loved making my valentine boxes. That Snoopy...he's a Sweetheart!
