For the Love of Pete - Day 6

As we near Valentine's Day (I know, it's only Day 6), I will need to start blowing some of these out in groups. I have more than 14 Valentines to showcase. STOP SIGHING!

For the Love of Pete - Day 5

Again, it might seem a little creepy today sending your teacher a Valentine suggesting a little "neckin'", but it's done in a humorous way.

For the Love of Pete - Day 4

In case you're just joining (ah, who am I kidding. Hello? Anyone out there?), I've been showcasing Valentine's sent to Peter Blank, a teacher from Freeburg, Illinois in the 1930's and '40's.

For the Love of Pete - Day 1

This past year I bought a box of vintage Christmas cards and Valentine's. I previously posted the Christmas cards here.  These Valentine's were all sent to a teacher named Peter Blank who lived in Freeburg, Illinois. From the look of the cards, they all date from the 1930's or 40's. I have a pretty good supply of them, so I thought I'd drag them out enjoy them one at a time over the days leading up to Valentine's Day.  A few have articulation, so I've included a gif showing them in action.  It's a look back on an innocent time when "love" was used much more freely, even among students and teacher.
