Wordless Wednesdays; Found At the Bottom of A Box

44 Nibbles:

Mae Travels said...

Do you have any idea of the date of these valentines? I wonder who would actually send them!

~~louise~~ said...

I'm not sure they are Valentine's Mae. I think they were posters of some kind. I'll be sharing Valentine's on Friday.

Mae Travels said...

I was confused by the hearts -- thought that made them valentines.

Johanna GGG said...

if only it were a joke (goodness that made me laugh at the top one)

Anne Regalado said...

Louise , maybe I should stop drinking lemonade or just ask somebody to cook something for me lol I love your retro posters , so funny !

~~louise~~ said...

I chose these two because of the hearts Mae. They were also the least offensive. Some of the other ones I have are not fit to print, lol...

~~louise~~ said...

I'm not sure if they were meant as a joke, Johanna. I can't even figure out what year they could be from. I'm thinking 30s or 40s.

~~louise~~ said...

Thank you Anne. I hesitated posting the because some may find them not so funny, lol...

Amelia said...

Hi Louise, happy Wednesday. Thank you for sharing these vintage valentine picture. It sure made me smiles from East to West. :))

Have a nice day.

Brandi said...

Oh man the first one really hit home!!!!! LOLOLOL!!!

Kitchen Riffs said...

Those are . . . interesting. Not my kind of humor, but obviously they had an audience. Always fun getting a peek back like this! Love all the things you post -- thanks so much.

Dottie said...

Louise, These are so cute and funny... I love them...A smile a day keeps the Doctor away! Blessings, Dottie :)

~~louise~~ said...

I'm so glad they made you smile, Amelia. I love that expression "from East to West" I must remember that:)

~~louise~~ said...

so glad you enjoyed Brandi...I have a feeling many of us can relate with that first one!

~~louise~~ said...

I really debated about posting these John. Not my kind of humor either. The final yes came from Marion. Perhaps she remembers them from long ago.

~~louise~~ said...

Thanks Dottie...I'm so glad you liked them:)

Joyti said...

Lol. these are adorable.

Nee said...

Hi Louise , love these retro posters , it's so nice when you can laugh at most things , some people had a weird sense of humor back in the day , loving it :-D thanks for sharing :)

~~louise~~ said...

Welcome Joyti!

I'm so glad you enjoyed this post. Thank you so much for stopping by. The door is always open, visit anytime:)

~~louise~~ said...

They aren't really my choice for much humor Nee but I have learned just because I don't like it doesn't mean some of my visitors won't enjoy it. I aim to please!!!! lol...thanks for visiting:)

Nellie said...

Interesting sense of humor in the "olden days.":-)

Francesca said...

Hello, my name is Francesca and I'm Italian. I stumbled upon your blog and I liked it because there are so many things belkle. I have joined your supporters. If you go too foul. Thank you.

~~louise~~ said...

I suppose, Nellie:)

~~louise~~ said...

Welcome Francesca! Thank you so much for visiting:)

Barbara said...

Geez. Negative Valentines!

Shirley Tay said...

Hahaha! Love them all, Louise! Guess what? I was actually in your blog when you were commenting on mine. Lol!

Alida said...

Gosh the humor was so different in those days! They are cute and funny though and so much more simple than these days adverts. I like them!

Geraldine Saucier said...

An interesting find at the bottom of your box. I do not believe I have ever seen such Valentines.

Gloria Baker said...

Louise I love all your posts, especialy retro posts, like this!

I Wilkerson said...

I am speechless. My daughter just called me and quoted from a textbook something about "the little woman's driving" and more. She said she was irritated with it and I said it must be referencing something old so she checked & found out it was from the 60's. Then I was able to smugly tell her "see all the things you never had to deal with..."

Marjie said...

I needed a chuckle this week. But at least we are home.

~~louise~~ said...

Negative, perhaps, Valentines, I don't think so. I'm researching to see if I can find out what they really are Barbara. Hopefully I'll find something soon:)

~~louise~~ said...

That is funny, Shirley except you had a tasty salad to nibble on at your blog:)

~~louise~~ said...

I'm glad you like them Alida...

~~louise~~ said...

You just never know what you will find at the bottom of a box, Geraldine:)

~~louise~~ said...

Thanks Gloria...

~~louise~~ said...

If only they knew, Inger. If only they knew...

~~louise~~ said...

I am so happy to hear that Marjie. I'll be "popping" by tomorrow:)

Debra Eliotseats said...

I think these are hilarious----in true vintage fashion!

Savannah Granny said...

Those are soooooo funny. I think Marion and I have a similar sense of humor. I for one have seen some cards by Hallmark that are very close to these. You should see the cards that Bob and his brother send one another.
