We can all use some sweet love these days and I am really excited to share with you our new Valentine’s Day sweet heart designs. My favorite is the bluebird or lovebirds as they are reminiscent of a 1950s vintage valentine card and has the words “Be My Tweet Heart” that is perfect for the vintage collector or Pinup Girl. We also have our pretty lady with her “Love Letters” and she has her cute little puppy dog (my Luna) sitting next to her with a stamp so she can mail that letter to her love. Our Love Letters tee is available in pink or white and our Be My Tweet Heart tee comes in candy pink. We remain size inclusive and our designs are available in Small-4XL and ready to ship, just in time for Valentine’s Day!!
Where is the time going? It was just Christmas, then New Years, and now it will be Valentines Day. How sweet are these vintage Valentines? These are all camera / photography themed. A while back I did a post about all the cute vintage anthropomorphic Valentine cards and this year I came across these adorable cards of little cuties taking pictures. March will be here soon too and I am super excited as I will be heading up to Portland, Oregon for the Christine Palmer antiques and collectibles show where there will be 1,000 booths. I usually attend this show in July for the summer show and once in October for the Christmas show but this will be my first Spring show and I am really looking forward to it. I usually go to the show with my twin sister and we have the best time. I can’t wait to see what treasures we find. As has become my ‘norm’ I will be live tweeting and doing Vine video posts and fingers crossed the internet connection is better than it was at the summer show so please stay tuned, lots of great footage to come.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and everywhere I look I see adorable vintage Valentine collectibles by those 1950s and 1960s makers – Lefton, Norcrest, Napco, Relpo and Relco, I thought it best to “get it out of my system” and post up the vintage Valentine collectibles that are so heart-warming to look at and make you think of LOVE in that sweet old-fashioned way!

It was a gorgeous day here in Santa Rosa, CA. Sun was shining and it was in the mid 60s. I had been spending much time at home recovering from a darn shoulder injury and for the first time in nearly a month I was feeling well enough to head out for some antiquing. We walked through a couple thrift stores but nothing was calling out to us and then we ended up at Whistle Stop Antiques and it is a small multi dealer mall that had lots and lots of shoppers. I had been to this shop before and nearly always find something and today was great as I found a few really neat items. These 3 mermaids are so cute….I haven’t seen faces like theirs before with lots of color on the cheeks and eyes as intricate as theirs. I am researching the maker of the mermaids and can see the 2 smaller ones are signed with what looks like “Doris King” and the bigger mermaid is signed “SL”. I also found an adorable vintage Valentine couple, pair of anthropomorphic fish salt and pepper shakers, a sweet table runner with embroidered poodles on each end as well as this really adorable vintage Lefton Miss Priss pitcher. We saw lots of Bakelite radios that I wouldn’t mind collecting but I need to win a lotto jackpot first as many have price tags in the thousands of dollars!! Hope you are all having a great weekend.
