I know the answer to this one...No they don't! doesn't that look like your little side table? Very sweet, thanks for sharing my friend! Sweet hugs, Diane
Too bad. I have to admit I love the old vintage cards best. Yes, it does look a big like my side table! :-)
Love! I guessed mid 70's and I was right! I love learning the art styles of the decades.♥
One can tell by the hair and the clothes.... just like in the movies. :-)
They really don't make cute Valentine/holiday cards anymore. Simply adorable.
It's kinda sad, isn't it? I admit that I love the vintage cards more.
It really IS adorable! Too many cartoon character valentines now; no love expressed.
I really think that if my kids were still young, we would make all our own valentines. I really do not like the choices available at the stores these days.
Oh so cute - and I don't think little girls play with paperdolls so much anymore. But I still play with mine.
I do, too. :-) And I think that young kids will happily play with whatever the adults in their life provide for them to play with. Paperdolls included. Older kids are a different story, as they are heavily influenced by friends, and parents don't have as much control over that.
It is so cute, Gayle. I haven't seen any like this one around.
I honestly don't think they make cards like this anymore. Sad. :-(
It really is sweet......I miss these sweet illustrations.
I do too.
Very cute. How do you resist making them.
I do cut them out when I have two exactly the same. Otherwise I keep the paper doll cards I find in one piece. It's so easy to lose pieces once they are cut out.
OhI sure know my sister carrie and I would have loved that Card and added it to our Paper Doll Collection for sure. Speaking of Grand-peeps you are going to be over the moon being a grandma..
I'm already so excited!!
No, valentines cards are definitely not cute like that anymore. They don't even come with envelopes now! They've gotten really cheap and boring.
I would be making all my own valentines, then. Maybe that's better anyhow.
My Grandma used to get me cards with paper dolls on them for my Birthday. I loved those cards because I loved paper dolls! Do little girls even play with paper dolls anymore?Linda
My little girl did! :-) I think youngsters will play with whatever toys their parents provide for them.
Oh my gosh I just love, love, love the first pic. I want to hang it on my wall.
So sweet and I just love their darling faces! xo Heather
I love the illustrations, too!
Isn't that such a sweet card! Love the little tea set.
The tea party made this card extra special for me. :-)
Oh these are really sweet, I love them. x
So cute. Such memories these cards bring to mind.M :)
My baby sister was the right age for paper dolls at the time this one was published. So these illustrations make me think of her as a little girl.
Awww...they are so sweet! I always love the vintage valentines. Not so much the new ones of today.warmly,debare you looking for anything special, as you commented on my blog about cleaning out the china cabinet. I have 2 more china cabinets to go thru! LOL! I know!!! (hoarder!)
Me too! Oh, I always have my eye out for pretty teacups, for a family exchange we are doing. Wish you had an etsy shop!
Aww, these are so sweet!! I bought a book on Vintage Valentines a few years ago. I love to thumb through it, and look at the old cards.
That sounds like a wonderful book!
Oh that is just beautiful! No, they don't make them as adorable any more - but I wish they did! Have a good weekend.
So do I!
For that matter, do they even make paper dolls anymore?I remember when most of the magazines my mother bought had a paper doll page. The back of the page was just advertisements so it didn't hurt to take the page out. I would anxiously wait for my mother to read the magazine so she'd give me the go-ahead.
Yes, they absolutely do still make paper dolls. We have a lot of really wonderful contemporary paper doll artists! There are paper doll magazines that can be subscribed to. I should do a blog post about that sometime soon. I do miss the Betsy McCall paper dolls that you are probably referring to. And Mary Engelbreit's dolls, too.
What a sweet Valentine. It has been a while since I've looked for children's valentines but I can't imagine there still being anything this sweet still around. Out of curiosity I think I'll check that out. :)
You'll have to let us know if you find something wonderful!
