Striking Valentine, c. 1950s

So much to love here: the apartment building in the background, the reference to labor unions...

Valentine Pie, 1903

A Tuck Valentine.

Here's the poem inside:


I'd like to be a piece of pie,
To give you so much pleasure;
The smile that twinkles in your eye
Now indicates a treasure.

If you could only care for me,
We'd love and pie combine;
I'd serve the sweetest things to thee
And be your Valentine.

New York Magazine paper dolls

Thank you Jenny T. for giving us a heads up about these paper dolls that appear in the Dec. 29-Jan. 11 issue of New York Magazine. I'm home nursing a cold, but my husband ran to the nearest convenience store and bought a copy. 

Check out Jenny's blog for more details.
