Vintage Valentine

My favorite Valentines are the ones from the 1950's through the 1960's. Here are a few I've collected over the years! I've also included the lyrics of a favorite old love song called "Where is Love" from the musical Oliver. Tony Bennett included it on his "Snowfall" CD a few years ago. It's really a lovely song with beautiful lyrics.





















































Where is love?
Does it fall from skies above?
Is it underneath the willow tree
That I've been dreaming of?
Where is she?
Who I close my eyes to see?
Will I ever know the sweet hello
That's meant for only me?
Who can say where she may hide?
Must I travel far and wide?
'Til I am beside the someone who
I can mean something to ...
Where...?
Where is love?
Who can say where...she may hide?
Must I travel...far and wide?
'Til I am...beside the someone who
I can mean...something to...
Where?
Where is love?

  2. These are the kind of valentines I remember from when I was a little girl at school. What a nice trip down memory lane! Oliver is one of my all-time favourite musicals. I love the movie version made with Mark Lester and Jack Wilde so many years ago now. And finally -- I love, love, LOVE your new header -- so cute!

  3. OH my gosh...these are adorable! They bring me back to my childhood. We used to give out these types of Valentine's cards to fellow students in elementary school when I was a wee one. Way, way back... :)
