They don’t make valentines like they used to. The love notes given in the early 20th century were much more interesting than the cookie-cutter pop culture cards kids hand out today—in fact, some of them were deliciously strange. Take a look back at the past of printed love, thanks to Page of Bats. Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a little cannibalism! Send a suicidal skunk for when being creepy just isn’t enough… Let your valentine know that they kill ya with cancer ‘n’ diabetes. Why wear your heart on your sleeve when you can put it on a platter? This nightmare kitten expresses his love with casual staking and furballs. For your submissive Stockholm love kitten. Hmm. This shitty little Valentine makes me wonder, what is on her toast? Perhaps he’s dreaming of the little girl with the flies… The dance of the sardine and leek, is this to say love stinks? Sweet harassment and intimidation… Nothing says love like a suggestive banana! Oh radiator stop, you’re making me sticky and steamy. That crazy face is driving me batty!

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of our lil’ Rebena’s out there. For those of you keeping up with us, we have been spreading a lot of love the last month. We decided to do a giveaway on Feb 1st to drum up a little social media following. Fiona M has won our Good Karma giveaway. We have raised a good chunk of funding for Labour Behind The Label, which is one of our favorite organizations out there. The funds we raised will be going towards the Six Item Challenge that Filthy Rebena will be participating in starting March 5, 2014.
The Toronto Etsy Street Team has asked us to spread our love and be a guest blogger for their website. To continue on playing cupid, we are giving you a little eye candy… a Filthy Rebena makeover. That’s the news and love we have been spreading from the slews. Today we are celebrating love in our favorite floral prints and taking some time to stop and smell the roses. Have a great day Rebena’s. Show us some love on our social media outlets: Instagram – Tumblr – Facebook – Etsy – Twitter
