Come on, admit it. You have a big smile on your face, don't you?
I know I did when I first saw this absolutely adorable collection of vintage-style Valentines that you can press out, make your own envelopes for and deliver to your special Valentine — secret or not.
Looking at the 25 colorful, sweet and whimsical Valentine's in the book, I couldn't help remembering back to elementary school when we would make and decorate construction paper mailboxes to tape to the front of our desks.
The night before Valentine's would be busy picking out Valentine's just like the ones in this book — trying to match each card to its recipient. On Valentine's Day, one by one, each student would go about the room and deliver his or her valentines to the makeshift mailboxes, while everyone else kept their heads down on their desks so as not to see "Cupid" at work.
These cards, originally created by Gordon Laite, a popular illustrator in the 1950s and 1960s, will conjure up memories of doilies, glitter and shoeboxes of homemade valentines!
And OMG!, there is red flocking on some of the cards! Some even have hearts, or birds or petals, etc., that you punch out and add to a card. Such fun! Make new memories!
Bet you will have a hard time deciding which Valentine will get what card!
