Vintage Teacher Valentine

Can’t tell for sure, but this one looks like late 30s or early 40s (the teacher’s hairstyle, the girls dress and the children’s hair).

Vintage Valentine with a Horse

Though it’s not dated (I’ve never even seen a date on a vintage valentine), this one looks to be from the 1940s or early 50s, judging from the style of the little boy’s shirt.

I sincerely hope that Reed and Lucy grew up to have happy and fulfilled lives.

Vintage Valentine Activity Page

(It looks a little distorted because the original is oversized; the quality clears up when you click on the image.)

Vintage Doily Valentines


(Click on the image to enlarge – the words become legible.)

This page is from the February 1943 issue of Children’s Activities magazine. After working at Children’s Activities, Garry and Caroline Myers started Highlights for Children, then eventually bought C.A. The similarities are obvious – they are both high quality magazines with fun and educational activities.

I apologize for the quality of the scans. The magazine is oversized and won’t fit on my scanner so I had to take photographs and they aren’t perfect.

True Love & a Gift

Love
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16

The Gift
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:23

The brown on the bear is velvety, which of course doesn’t show on the photograph.

Vintage Children’s February Magazines

When I was a little girl, there were 2 different magazines that my mother bought for me. One was Humpty Dumpty (I think geared for slightly younger children) and Jack and Jill.

Jack and Jill, February 1958


(It has been snowing like gangbusters here in north Texas today – since before daylight. I wanted to show you that our bird feeder looks like the one on the cover of the Jack and Jill.)

Back then, everyone knew that there was a difference between girls and boys and that each gender was interested in different things.

These 2 issues are ones that I bought at the antique mall. I wish they had scanned in more clearly, but if you click on them, they will enlarge. And if it shows a magnifying glass, it will enlarge even more and I think it will be legible.

The cover on this one is a little more worn, but that’s okay, because it’s still interesting and it only cost $1.00.
