Decorating with Vintage Valentines

I love to get out my vintage Valentines...I have so much fun looking at them!  
My Grandmother saved every thing   (I'm more like her)  my mother saved nothing (that's why you won't see any of MY childhood Valentines in this post...lol)
This sweet Valentine was sent to my Grandma (Velma Dell Smith) in 1928 or 29.  (Grandma wrote the TO part on it with the year she received it.... as best she could remember)
This is another one of hers, it's marked on the back, but I forgot to take a pic of it (1928).

  All the other Valentines in this post were sent to my mother when she was a little girl.... 100's of them that my Grandma saved for her.......but did my mother save even 1 of mine?  NOOOO...lol
I LOVE YOU Mother! 
We will enjoy looking at them while we have a nice Valentine dinner with family.

The place settings are all alike, except for the vintage Valentine placed on each plate.
The centerpiece is a vintage pink baby scale that I bought at the auction.   It has a "ton" of Valentines on it  (ton...scale...I crack myself up...lol!)  
I wanted to show you my new pink chenille place mats....$5 for all 4 at Tuesday Morning.
Last year, I clipped my Valentines to a lamp shade...

and made a table runner from them.

Hmmm, I just realized that I didn't put any silverware on the table......better do that before we eat!

Have a wonderful day!

  1. Penny, your vintage Valentine decor is just so beautiful, frilly and oh so, charming! How wonderful to have your grandmother's Valentines! My, my goodness, your white china cabinet full of treasures is just breathtaking! Beautiful post!

  2. Very pretty! Love your chandelier too! Lovely vintage Valentine that once belonged to your grandmother. Your Tuesday Morning find is nice, hmmm... It's been a while since I visited that store. Must go! Have a great day! Hugs!

  3. Penny I took after my Mom, always saved things, but this gene has skipped my daughter! I used to have the Valentine boxes that my Mom saved, they used to decorate the candy boxes so lavishly, but somehow I have lost them, I guess in moving. But every Valentines Mom would have them displayed on her Living Room Couch, along with red balloons she would blow up and pile on the couch too. It was always so much fun to see. I love the walk down memory lane with your Grandmoms Valentines. Penny will you be My Valentine? ♥

  8. This is just so neat. I have some vintage Valentines..most I have collected. None from chidhood. My mother just saved baby items..and not much of those. No matter...I am collecting on my own and three just arrived today. I have another package or two to go.
    I have such a great time with our little home. I guess it's really a hobby..and an on going thing because things just keep changing. New things come in..and since meeting you, I am looking at everything with new eyes. :)

  10. OMG I tossed out my old Valentines and a candy box from the 50's and 60's about 10 years ago when i turned 51. Should have sent them to you!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Penny, those are GREAT! When we packed up Mamaw's house after she passed, we came across half a dozen old heart-shaped candy boxes STUFFED with old Valentines and other family memorabilia. What a treasure!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I feel like I just jumped into a beautiful pink cone of cotton candy! I love all the pink valentines and I remember those beautifully decorated boxes that my Dad would get my Mom when I was little. I love those paper plates! So pretty, thanks for sharing.

  22. What a lucky you are Maam Penny...

    I never had any remembrance from my childhood either. I remembered that Mum inherited lots of very old china but, I didn't see them now even those things I done or Mum done.

    Enjoy every treasure for the next generation.

    HAPPY weekend.

  26. Lovely memories Penny and so pretty. I threw away my valentines when I got married. I thought my new hubby would be jealous LOL. How silly I was in those days.:)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Your collection is a treasure Penny! My mother didn't save any of mine. So awesome that you have ones that were your mothers and grandmothers. I have 10 or so vintage ones and all have been purchased quite a few years ago. Love the names and dates on the backs. I have a couple with moving eyes. The other day I saw one similar at a consignment shop and they wanted $10 for one. You have a treasure trove! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,

  29. Penny,
    What a gorgeous Tablescape for Valentines Day!!

    How cool is that that you have Valentines from your Mom and Grandmother!!! My Mother threw everything out too!! She regarded everything as Clutter and one of her favorite sayings " Dust Catchers"!!

    Hugs,
    Deb

  39. Hi Penny,
    Your Valentine's Day table is just perfect. I especially love those antique pink chairs with the beautiful carving. Did you paint them white yourself? The pink fabric looks so elegant with the white wood. Thank you for brightening my day! have a wonderful week! Karen

  41. Hi Penny, I followed your link from Mosaic Monday over at Little Red Farm House. I used to follow your blog because I love your decorating style but I lost your link one day by accident while cleaning up some blog links. I am happy to have found you again. I just love your home and all of your soft feminine designs. Thanks for sharing!

  50. Hi Penny, My mother also either donated to the needy or threw away or repurposed everything from my childhood also. And my Maternal Grandmom was gone to Jesus before I was old enough to know her . So your having all this wonderful memorabilia from your Grandmom touches my heart. Just loveliness. Thank you for sharing. I am really liking the pink glassware and the Chandelier decor is so beautiful. Happy Valentines Day!!
