Vintage Valentine Pin-Ups - 2021

In many parts of the world, this year's Valentine's day (February 14th), will mean another COVID-19 isolation lockdown. It never was a favourite holiday of mine, when being single.

One thing I do love are the vintage Valentine cards and old pin-up photos. Most were taken in the 1940s or 50s, which was a common thing back then. So here's a salute to some of my favourites that I found online, mainly from Pinterest.

On a side note, we all know that Valentine's day is just another commercial holiday. But if you are going to buy a gift, skip the chocolates and flowers and give a gift - for your partner, friend, family member, or even treat yourself and buy something vintage. It's better for the environment and it's more memorable. Plus you are supporting a small business.
