Great American Love Stories

John and Jackie, a memorable presidential couple whose love for one another was profound and passionate. They will forever be remembered in the hearts and minds of the American people as a pair with strong values and love for their spouses and America.

"I love her [Jackie] deeply and have done everything for her. I've no feeling of letting her down because I've put her foremost in everything." - John Fitzgerald "Jack" Kennedy

Who doesn't adore a good love story?! You can read "Jacqueline Bouvier and John F. Kennedy's Love Story" here:

My vintage 60's Jackie Kennedy print is featured in this classy and sophisticated treasury titled "Feeling all Black & White" by fellow Etsy Recycler's Guild member "Texas Vintage".
Another Great American Love Story that I am always "warm and fuzzy" and enchanted by is "Gone with the Wind". The alluring Scarlett O'Hara and dashing Rhett Butler are an absolutely ravishing couple in this classic American film full of passion! The image above is actually one of the vintage prints in my shop titled "Timeless Vintage 60's Gone with the Wind Paper Ephemera Print".

How about for a Valentine's date, you cuddle up with your sweetheart this chilly winter season and watch the romantic American classic "Gone with the Wind"! To embrace the spirit of the film, check out these rapturous treasuries:
This beautiful treasury was created by Anjasarts as a loving tribute to her dear Great Grandmother who passed away yesterday morning...I am honored to have my Vintage Gone with the Wind Print featured in such a precious and sentimental treasury (titled "Gone with the Wind...").
This arousing and very passionate treasury is titled "Do It With Passion!!!!!" by Vintage Canadian; in this treasury my Vintage Gone with the Wind Print is also featured.
Oooh la la, this heavenly elegant and romantic treasury just in time for Valentine's Day is created by fellow STAT Team member "Splattered with Paint" and is titled "We are..."; she features my Vintage 60's Playboy Pinup Print.
