Happy St Valentine's Day!

I'm not really the romantic sort.

It got knocked out of me early by the sorts of boys I knew at school who thought that this was how to do it...

Hence my idea of a Valentine's Day treat for my dear husband was this last year.

But this year I splashed out with a card that I'm sure the vintage lovers out there will like...

(The back is so cute - love the lack of anonymity and the formality!)

And to save him the hassle, I got another, from the same source, for me!

That Billy Cleaver certainly inspired someone's devotion!


  1. They are so cute! Happy Valentine's Day.

  2. Billy Cleaver must have been something!
    Love the vintage cards, they are so sweet!
    Happy Valentines Day Alix!

  3. Aah, they're gorgeous, can't resist a vintage valentine. I once got a card from a boyfriend where he called me 'Dude'. As in "love ya loads, Dude". And he drew a little logo of the band he was into at the time (he was in his 20s...)


  4. Happy Valentine's Day. Love the cards, where did you find them they're gorgeous.

    1. I found them online here - http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/NewAgainVintage
      And there's lots more, including quite a few with Billy's name on!

  5. Love the Valentines cards

  6. Your scrappy paper school valentine is hilarious, although I must admit I much better prefer the gorgeous vintage ones that you and your hubby gave each other........thank you for the award, I shall post about it at the end of this week........sock knitting permitting.

  7. Aww I wonder if Billy & Martha married. I have my Great Aunt's dance cards & invitations & a love letter or two tho she never married.
    I gave hubby a card with a boat on - his true love !
