I’ve been sitting here, still pondering Valentine’s Day and other such romanticism, when I remembered this really great site I found once upon a time. You should check it out: Cardboard Love Notes

Floor Fancies

I just found these great floor cushions on Etsy which is such a great site that everyone should know about! They’re so colorful and unique and they look really comfortable. My kids love to sit and lay on the floor so these are officially on my shopping list. Thought you might like them too! Here’s the link if you’re interested: Floor Cushions And the best part is they are upcycled. I always feel better about making purchases if I think it’s good for the environment. Like I can use that as justification for making the purchase. Am I the only one who does that?

I was randomly browsing vintage Valentine’s Day goodies and I found some of the sweetest and funniest vintage Valentines cards. Thought you might enjoy them as much as I did.

Locks of Love…Padlocks That Is

20120104-205452.jpg

So, I just learned about this new incredibly sweet lover’s tradition of sorts that I understand is referred to as Love Padlocks. I first read about it on one of my favorite blogs: Design Mom. I was of course fascinated by it so I googled it and wow! It is apparently a really popular tradition that started up in the 1980s in Hungary and has since spread like crazy. The tradition from what I can tell is to personalize the lock with the lovers’ names or initials, etc; place the lock; then throw the key into the nearest body of water to signify never-ending love. It makes me want to go put a padlock on something! What about you?
