Vintage Valentines

I visited W.D. Pickers Antique Mall last Saturday, roaming the aisles looking for nothing in particular when a box of vintage post cards caught my eye. I found some *~treasures-to-me~* that I purchased and brought home, that perhaps someday will find their way into some valentine art- until then, I'll enjoy their scandalous imagery:

One postcard actually revealed to me the *real reason* my mother taught me all about teatime as a young girl: land a man. The inscription on the back? "A tempting presentation."

Mother! For shame!


Check back tomorrow to see the tintype that also made its way home with me over the weekend. I've never been one to adopt ancestors, but the expression on the couple's faces is priceless and may just inspire me to try my hand at altered art in the future!
