Vintage Valentine's and Grandmas Tea Towels

These are two of my greatest loves in the vintage world.  Valentine's and Tea Towels.  Thought I'd get you all in the Valentine mood (my favorite holiday!  More Valentine blogs to come) and add alittle whimsy with my Grandma Iris's vintage pattern tea towels.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my sweet 92 year old grandma and her wonderful hand work.  Lately she's really been cranking them out. 

"I won't be here much longer...gotta stock you up!"  she says.

While I'm sharing...I decided to do a little give away.  If you subscribe/become a member of my blog and leave a comment, you will be entered once.  If you also make your way to Facebook and look up Vintage Values, Modern Times (my vintage Facebook page) and join that group, I will enter your name again!  What will you win?  A set of 5 vintage Valentine's from the 50's !  Enter by January 25th.

OK, here's the Vintage goodness:


"Anthropomorphic" is the official name for the inanimate objects with faces...my favorite type of Valentine.
 
 
This one is special because I found it in my Grandma Margaret's scrapbook.  I never knew her, she died when I was 2...but I have this Valentine that was hers!
 
 
 
 
 
Here's the bulletin board full of them.
