A vintage valentine for you! One with the original poem and one for you to write your own!
April 26, 2022
Well I'm back! I completely forgot I still had this blog! I recently went to my local Goodwill and they were selling some very old vintage photographs (which I will share in the near future) and remembered that I own The Vintage Moth! I logged in to discover that this site is still getting 10,000 views a month even though I hadn't looked at it in over 8 years. I still have in my possession a ton of vintage images that I will be posting on this site so I hope that you will come back regularly to see them!
Here is one from my vintage Valentine collection of a little girl holding a stuffed bear. I have posted two versions- one with and one without the lettering. Enjoy!

Hey guys! I went to an estate sale this morning and found a few antique books from the late 1800's - 1920's that were falling apart but perfect to use for the blog. One of the books is called "Wood's Natural History" from 1899. It includes all sort of different animal images and I really love this rhino profile. I've posted the original image here with the original colored paper and one that is just black and white.

I found this old cigarette card on Etsy and just fell in love. I don't know why I am drawn to old medical genre illustrations but I hope that you will enjoy them too. Here is an illustration of compression of an artery. I love that when I smell the card, I can still smell the tobacco that it came with. I don't smoke but something about that smell reminds me of my childhood.
Have a fantastic weekend and I will be back on Monday with some more images!
