While everyone on Pinterest.com is busy creating generic one size fits all vintage Valentine Boards, I decided that the pinning would be more fun to create boards with specific categories of vintage Valentine cards. Personally I kicked off the Valentine phase with a board that is true to my retro kitschy self. I named my board "Kitsch n Valentines" . Kitsch N Valentines Vintage Food Valentines
