My husband showered me with handmade delights this Valentine's Day. First, I got a box full of cranberry-orange gumdrops, made by fahrenheitgoods on Etsy. They are soft and delicious (I had to hide them from myself so I wouldn't eat them all this evening!), and the box was wrapped in a beautiful paper too. I'm sure that paper will make its way into a handbound book in some way or another.
He also got me a beautiful pair of copper enamel earrings from tekaandzoe, and I couldn't be more thrilled. (You might remember that I've been lusting over them for months...) I already planning my outfit for work tomorrow so I can wear my new earrings.
And last but not least, Tony picked out some handmade perfume for me from Sweet Anthem. I've been obsessed with the "Anita" scent for the past month, after ordering a perfume sampler with a gift card my friend Chase gave me for Christmas. All of the fragrances I tried were quite nice, but that particular one really stood out to me. "Anita" smells just like a peppermint mocha, my all-time favorite coffee drink. And as my sample of that scent was starting to run low, I'm excited to now have a full-sized bottle of it.
Tony and I will be staying in this evening, cooking dinner together, and watching a movie. On the menu: homemade chicken curry, chocolate souffle, and a bottle of wine we've been saving since our honeymoon. It should be the perfect evening.
I hope you've all had a very happy Valentine's Day!
