Nephew Buster & Cowgirl Cupid

by 1 January 15, 2010 1 min read

I have a fun little collection of vintage cowgirl themed valentine cards and since today is Valentine's Day it's the perfect opportunity to share one with you.

.

This is my favorite- a Victorian valentine from the Golden Age of Postcards ca. early 1900s.  I don't know the artist, but it was printed in Germany and done in bas relief adding dimension and interest.  The imagery is a hoot - a butt-naked cupid atop a horse and throwing a lasso of hearts at a train.

.

TRAIN?  I don't get the train, but I do have to wonder if Cupid's bottom side is a bit rashed!

. .

Cupid's butt to saddle wasn't just lost to me, take a look at the reverse side of the card and read what Aunt Sizzie had to say to Nephew Buster:

.

Hello Buster how is this for a pretty girl on horse back.  how would you like to ride with her.  From your Aunt & Uncle Will & Sizzie

. .

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

xoxo - Cheryl

Clusters are such a key component of the southwestern jewelry landscape and this collection brings them center stage. In fact, we dedicated an entire print to them.
