And now for something just a lil' bit different...

Just in time for the day we demonstrate our love for those special people in our lives, some vintage cards that made me both scratch my head and chortle.

Dead rodents= True Love

Love me or you'll be sorry.

Are you sure you want to know?

Our modern cultural sensibilities have changed a bit I think. Do these strike anyone else as being a tad bit violent in their passionate expression?

Even a little stalkerish?

Yes, the flames of desire....

..burning passion...

...hearts on fire...

What is the message exactly?

Are they examining the abused aortas?

Lest you  think these cards represent my mood for the day, here's a pretty one.

Happy Valentine's Day! 
Be careful with the hearts of those you love!
