Decoupaging with 1930's Valentines

I know I have mentioned my love of the art work of the 1930's before.  The period is exemplified by idyllic home scenes.  The Valentines from this period stand our as perfect examples of this.
I have a large collection of Valentines from this period, but the ones I used for this decoupage project are from Graphics Fairy.

I used some of the new clear Tacky glue as a decoupage medium and I love how it worked.  The sheen is great!  The cute can and tray set was $1 from the thrift store, so this project was mostly about the time spent, which was about 10 minutes. 


  1. Wowzer, it was that easy, I love finding neato things like this when I troll blogland. Thanks.

  2. I love the 30's and 40's illustrations for their bright colors and sweet sentiments. Looks like fleaology was a big success. Would love to come to the next one. Wouldn't you want to have one up in Davis County? I'm sure you'd find a whole new set of fans. I'll help you find the venue! We're on our way home from CA and found a little pocket of WIFI. Mimi

    1. Thanks, the sale went very well, and we were very happy with it. We have three sales set for this summer in Payson, and have been invited to do three others, just not sure how thin we should stretch ourselves. Thanks for the offer, I will mention it to the girls.
