Valentine's Day Inspiration

This is a post for those of you who are Valentine's Day challenged. These images are from my stash of 1950's and 60's scrapbooks; one of which is dedicated to the month of February. Hopefully something here will spark an idea as to how to properly show your loved ones that you care.

Pies and cakes are always a pleaser.......

handmade gifts are nice too.

What says "I love you" more than a corn or lime bean gelatin salad?

I have to say that I'm intrigued by the "Moss Rose Cake". It's covered in chopped pistachios and has an almond cream filling-yum.

Some table decorating suggestions.

Well I hope this gave you some ideas for the 14th. As for me, I won't be baking or entertaining but I will be taking my husband to a burlesque show- he's a lucky guy!



  1. a burlesque show?? wow!! Paula you are so talented! I learn something new about you everyday! he he he

  2. These are so wonderfully dated - the corn and lima bean gelatine hearts are a bit odd though! I have a scrap book of vintage VD cards - must scan in for my blog.
    Great post!
