13 Totally Bizarre & Sweet Baby Valentines

Oh Valentine’s day. I have such mixed feelings about you.

Which is why I am perfectly content to amuse myself with looking at ridiculous vintage Valentines.

For some reason, babies were a popular theme of choice in Valentine card design.

Probably because they are cute, but some of these images are just plain bizarre. You be the judge, after the jump!

    Victorian cherub Cupid. Nothing too strange going on here, except for the fact that cherub Cupids creep me out slightly.

    Now this. Sweet, pretty vintage goodness. nothing bizarro. Except that maybe a large bouquet of baby is rather disconcerting. Thank-you internets.

    Oh the puns. They ran in abundance as featured on Valentine cards back in the day. Some of them cute, some of them sassy, some of them hilarious, some of them completely whack. (Racist, sexist, wouldn't see the light of day in print today).

    Slightly would appear as it this baby has busted out of their confines, no matter how charming they look. Who wants to be tied up in a basket? Plus, there's all those posies to pick...

    Not that I believe in gifting, making or baking your heart out for babies on Valentine's day. I think it should be done at random, year round. But, if you were a collector of things? Or keeping a treasure chest for your little one, this will remind them of how much you loved them when they are grounded for sneaking out at night.
