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!
