A Valentine's Day postcard which depicts two bluebirds in a gold circle. The birds are resting on a grape vine and appear to be eating the grapes on the vine. Below the gold circle, the verse, "With loving thoughts for thee O' winsome little maiden" is written in gold lettering. A large gold heart, set among a trail of smaller gold hearts, appears at the bottom of the card in a purple box. Stylized leaves, outlined in gold, appear on the right side border of the postcard.

The reverse of the postcard contains a message from Irene Schieckoff of Heidelberg, Ont. to Miss Minnetta Stolz of Galt, Ont.
