Here is something you, probably, did not know about me - I am not a great fan of St. Valentine's Day at all. Maybe because I never had to celebrate this day alone and, as a result, I became a proud owner of the extensive collection of teddy bears in all shapes, colors and sizes holding hearts, balloons, note cards, gift pouches and what was once a tiny boxes of chocolates in there paws. I stopped counting the number of teddy bears after 24th. Last year I, finally, resolved to retire the entire army of Valentine's teddy bears and packed them away in the attic. Is it possible that the older we get, the less excited we get about things like Valentine's Day? :-)
The only reminder of how excited I once was about Valentine's Day is my daughter Anastasia, who is literally driving me mad about the right choice of Valentine dress, shoes, make up and hair. She is looking forward to spending her Valentine's Day with her boyfriend and I find myself not that excited at all: she is almost 18 which makes me almost 100. One thing I love about Valentine's Day is the color red. For a week or two there grey February days become infused with the pallet of reds, fuchsias and pink as every little boutique decorates front windows with all sorts of cheesy cupids and hearts of all sizes.:-)
To those of you who are still excited about celebrating St.Valentine's Day I wish it will bring you joy and happiness. Love on its own is a pretty spectacular thing and if you are a lucky girl (or guy) who has special someone and love celebrating - Happy St. Valentine's Day!
For this post I chose "Florentine" hat f my new "Sanctum" Collection. Sculpted, jeweled, orchid piece in the color of Love. :-)
