Lovely Antique Valentines Valentine's Day Decorating Ideas

Happy February dear friends! January came and went without a trace of snow! We have had more consistent spring-like weather than winter weather, so it has been hard not to get in a spring mood. I have finally packed away most of the winter decor around the house and I have been enjoying playing around with some Valentine’s Day vignettes during this transitional time. 

 

While Valentine’s Day is technically a winter holiday, this precious antique Valentine with lily of the valley inspired me to create a Valentine vignette with a bit of an early spring vibe. I scored the sweet vintage lily of the valley saucer you see behind the Valentine at an antiques shop last weekend. 

 

When I purchased the plate I didn’t even think about details of the Valentine featuring two cherubs riding in an antique car full of lily of the valley. It just seems vintage vignettes with my junkin’ finds always come together! 

 

This beautiful antique Valentine was a gift from my sweet friend Emily of Le Culitvateur. Last year she shared her amazing vintage and antique Valentines collection for our Vintage Valentine’s Day Blog Hop. I commented on how much I admired her collection, and while I had plenty of antiuqe Valentine postcards and a few retro-kitchsy Valentines, I didn’t have any actual antique Valentines like hers. Within a short time I recieved a suprise package from Emily with this gorgeous Valentine and two others! So sweet!

 

 

Emily’s collection is truly amazing and she styles her valentines in the most creative vintage vignettes.

 

All her lovely vintage and antique valentines make my heart flutter!

 

 

 

 

I just adore the details on the antique Valentines Emily sent me. (Thank you Emily!)

 

 

This Valentine is a pop open style. It was hard to photograph but I wanted to show you all the details that are hidden by the blue car when the Valentine is standing open. The little cherubs are holding a French basket full of flowers and there are flowers are around their feet. Just adorable!

 

I love their pretty blue eyes too! I know we vintage lovers say this phrase all they time, but…”they just don’t make things like they used to!”

 

Here is another beautiful heart shaped antique Valentine that Emily sent me. 

 

It has a paper doily overlay which lifts to reveal a pretty girl gathering tulips, another reminder that spring will soon be here!

 

 

This Valentine is actually an antique at 101 years-old!

 

Such a sweet sentiment inside.

 

 

Being a music teacher I always love any vintage items with a music them. Emily also sent me this beautiful valentine with a cherub surrounded by dainty flowers and a lute. It is perfect for my music room.

 

Here is “love’s declaration” on the inside.

 

 

I have been collecting antique and vintage Valentine postcards for several years. The “Sweet Flowers Tell of My Love” is new to my collection (a steal at .50!)  

 

I am still working on a few Valentine vignettes this year using my old postcards and Valentines, but here is how I styled some of them last year on my piano for the Vintage Valentine’s Day Blog Hop. I always combine Vintage Valentines and Roses.

    Amber,
    The vintage Valentine Emily sent you is so beautiful. I love the Lily of the Valley flowers and that the card is 3-dimensional pop-up. Of course, the blue color in the card makes me love it even more.
