Vintage Valentines and Cards

Hello!  Here is another mix of vintage Valentine’s Day cards.  This assortment includes Sky Dancers, The Magic of Unicorns, She-Ra, Care Bears, Lovely Lady Locks, Barbie, random vintage, Sailor Moon, and Popples.  They are all sooo cute~! 

Besides the Valentine cards, I also have blank Rose Petal Place cards, a Lisa Frank party invite, Rainbow Brite party invitations, a Hugga Bunch party card, The Swan Princess party invite, and a Lovely Lady Locks thank you card.

In this last picture, you can see the cards are not in a frame… I kind of ran out of nice frames to use. ʕ→ᴥ←ʔ  So they will be on my little pink shelf for now.

Bye~

P.S.: most of the Valentines were purchased from RainbowValentineShop @Etsy. ❥Maria

The Girly 80s: Pastels, Horses, and Rainbows

Hello~!  How is everyone doing?  I hope you’re all well.  With all the shut-downs because of the virus, I have been cooped up in my house without much going on.  But I would like to share with all of you what has been piquing my interest lately.

I’ve been interested in the 1980s; whether it be icons, TV shows, synthwave music, merchandise…  It wasn’t my era, but it is so fun to see everything that was available and popular at the time. 

Part of my past diving involves watching TV shows from that decade, such as Rainbow Brite 1984, She-Ra: Princess of Power 1985, Jem and the Holograms 1985, and Lady Lovely Locks 1987.  Each of the series have a relatively short run of episodes, but the stories are pretty entertaining and cute. (ღ•͈ᴗ•͈ღ)

Another sliver of interest is the merchandise, specifically toys, from the ’80s.  I have read articles or watched videos of people who collect items from that decade, seeing so many toys I didn’t know existed. 

​One toy brand from that time includes the Generation 1 My Little Pony toys, which I discovered that, besides mares, they also made stallion ponies (you know, males).  I have a lovely vintage pony set made in 1988 called Loving Family Ponies, which includes three ponies: Daddy Bright Bouquet, Mommy Bright Bouquet, and Baby Bright Bouquet.

Besides shows and toys, I have also been collecting vintage Valentine’s Day cards.  I have quite a variety, but the ’80s ones consist of The Magic of Unicorns, She-Ra, Lady Lovely Locks, Rose Petal Place, Care Bears, and Barbie (although I believe the outfit resembles ’90s…).

There are some other items to highlight, but I will leave that for another day.  This is just a small glimpse into the very cute characters of the time and the creative use of colors.

Kawaii Box February 2020

Hello~!  In light of the upcoming holiday, I decided to share what was in my latest box from Blippo’s monthly subscription Kawaii Box.  This is a service where they create and fill a box with several cute items and send them to you.  The fun thing about Kawaii Box is that what’s inside is a surprise. 

As a note, it isn’t the first time I have received one of these boxes; this is simply to show what cute items were put inside this time.  Particularly because of this month’s theme.  Can you guess it?  I’m sure you’ve guessed it–St. Valentine’s Day!

The little booklet inside was titled “Valentine’s Day Chu”, and inside it highlighted all of the items in the box with a cute, small description for the use/thought behind the product.

In total, there were eight items in this box: five stationary types, two snacks, one household item, and two plushies (technically one).​  Everything is so cute, especially the whale plushies.  Apparently, if you give one to i.e., a friend, when you see each other you are to reunite the whales and have them hold fins *squeal*~!  Too cute. ^^

Do you want to experience this service yourself? Click here to head over!
