Vintage Valentine

Coca-Cola ad circa Valentine's Day 1969

Coca-Cola advertisement circa Valentine’s Day 1969

It is no secret that I am a sucker for all things vintage. Sometimes it’s because of the simplicity, yet others it’s all about the ornateness. I guess I’m smitten with this vintage Coke ad thanks to a combination of the two–that lacy doily fills me with nostalgia for making Valentines out of red construction paper and doilies with my grandparents so many years ago, and the caption (as commercially driven as it is) makes me smile in wonderment at all the simple ways there are to be romantic with our sweets. Wishing you a happy day filled with two straws, one glass, and lots of love! Leave a comment.

    One of my best childhood memories is making the construction paper and doily Valentines! I’m thinking next year both kids might be big enough to do that. Or maybe I just have to do it myself after bedtime and surprise them!

      Ah, I love hearing that you have that happy memory, too, Laine! I haven’t made doily and construction paper Valentines in so long, but just thinking about them makes me feel so nostalgic, warm, and fuzzy inside. 😉 I hope you and your kids get to make them together next year…Or at least that your late-night valentines bring big smiles to their faces. 🙂
