Vintage Love

I have a little vintage project for you today. It's outside of what I would consider my personal style, but I kinda like it, anyway. This one would be vintage on top of vintage on top of vintage. Vintage letters on top of a vintage postcard on top of vintage lace and all married together for life on this little card. All found in one of my wandering perusals of a local antique shop. I've been saving and saving and saving it because it is so vintage Valentine's, don't you think?
I'm totally digging the uniqueness of it... that the elements were found in a local store, but not one that carries craft or scrap supplies. I love that the postcard went from hand to hand to hand and is soft with wear and love. I love that it looks like something that could be in someone's new line of reproduced ephemera products but that it is, in fact, what those products are inspired by. I love that the colors are still bright and saturated and beautiful after all these years. Not my usual style, but a nice little field trip of a project. Later, friends!
