Happy Valentine's Day!!!!! This year, since I don't have a beau, my valentine is Pumpkin. She does make for an adorable valentine...doesn't she? Today we will be spending the day at my favorite year around flea market, hopefully finding some special goodies. I hope everyone has a sweet day with their valentine....whoever it may be!
While I was looking online for a vintage valentine of a girl and a puppy, I came across this valentine, pictured above. It totally reminded me of the Merrie Melodies "Pettin' in the Park." There is a scene in that little short that looks identical to the valentine I found. The song, Pettin' in the Park is most famous for appearing in Gold Digger's of 1933, a spectacular Busby Berkeley film. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it! The Berkeley numbers are, in my opinion, among his best and the film also features some great '30s sports wear.
I will leave you with both the Merrie Melodies and a clip of the song from the film. Have a wonderful day!!
