Frugal Fun: Valentine's Day Inspiration

Photograph by Stan Williams

As Valentine's Day approaches, I'm looking for inspiration in these vintage cards found at a yard sale on the Jersey Shore. Don't you love the the sweet motifs and cheerful messages that these Valentine's convey? In a future post, I'll show you what I dream up.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter


  1. I love making "new" Valentines from old ones. Thanks for reminding me that I need to get on that!

  2. Reminds me of grade school when we use to exchange valentine card..I miss those times Everyone got a card.

  3. Those are very sweet. Like Tonia, I remember the Valentine's Day card exchange as one of the best days of the school year. Those were such happy days! I look forward to seeing what you've dreamed up.

  4. And remember making a Valentines box out of a showbox that classmates put your cards in?

  5. Valentines Day in grade school was just the best. One of my 2nd grade valentines had a fancy handkerchief inside. Mom said the boy liked me. I saved it for 40 years. Funny what stirs our hearts and stays in our minds at 7 years old. Can't wait to see your ideas for cards.

  6. These are the valentine gifts. Valentine day is the special day for me which can not ignore.This one special one for love.

  7. I like what you guys are up too. Such clever work and reporting! Carry on the superb works guys I've incorporated you guys to my blogroll. I think it'll improve the value of my website :)
