I'm not big into Valentine's Day. But I'll tell you what I am big into--Etsy.  So if there's a holiday and Etsy sellers are making stuff related to that holiday, I am all over it.  At this rate, I'll be celebrating Arbor Day with abandon.

No, don't worry, I'm not going to go overboard (that might have been the word used by Kevin the Grinch) like I did for Halloween and Christmas.  Even I, in my Etsy-crazed state, realize that Valentine's Day just doesn't have the oomph and magic of other holidays, and I don't feel the need to decorate.  But if I did...

Perhaps a little something cute?
(Seriously, it took me reading this 3 times to figure out what it said. )

Perhaps a little more cuteness?
These are so adorable yet elegant, too.

Magnets? Everyone needs a magnet. 

It's nice to have a little reminder of love around the home, and this one's great because it's in all-year colors, not in blazing pink and red. 

I asked Kevin if he wanted to get this for me and silence ensued. That's okay, because there's this...

 Oh my goodness can you stand the cuteness? Can you STAND IT? (psst, I couldn't, so I bought one)

I've been into this sellers' holiday banners--I got one that says "Be Mine".

But I also snooped around for things that make you giggle with a little shiver.

Why so pensive and glum, Mr. ... Thing? Surely nothing could be as bad as...

....having your heart ripped out.  Little girl, you look like you need a friend.

A friend with green hair.

Or a friend with red hair.

Or an embryo holding a heart. 

I enjoy bringing you the best of what Etsy has to offer.


  1. Yay! I was all ready to get into Valentines Day during my holiday withdrawal but I forgot about it. Now it's next weekend!

  2. Aww, I love all the valentine's day decorations! It reminds me of being a kid and making the little box to put all the valentines in. And, how can you ever go overboard when the things are that cute?

  3. I'm in love with everything birds this year! Those lovebird dishes are ADORABLE. Want. Want now.

  4. those creepy little girl dolls are hilarious.

  5. I'm so intrigued and freaked out by that embryo. Like I want it, but the tail terrifies me.
    This is an amazing compilation. I commend you.

  6. Fingers crossed that my husband gifts me with a haunted girl-axe-murdery doll or that sweet embryo!

  7. I love the love sign! Would look tres cute over my fireplace.

  8. That elephant is too cute! Great Valentine's Day finds!

  9. call me morbid, i love the fetus! hilarious!

  10. Ok, the embryo is a tad on the creepy side, but everything else (ok, maybe not the heart ripped out girl and if it weren't for the ripped out heart she'd be ok) is so cute!The love nest and cross stitch are my faves!

  11. lobster: ooh i hope you get a chance to get some cute things! or just some chocolate. that would be enough.

    kelsey: what a nice memory!

    jessica: i know, the plates are adorable, aren't they?

    sashacleo: i get the biggest kick out of those dolls.

    kate: i know, the embryo is oddly alluring.

    christina: i really like her signs, you should get one!

    ali: doesn't it seem like it would be perfect in a nursery?

    wanderlust: the fetus is pretty hilarious.

    maylove: i know, i like the love next and cross stitch as well--so cute!
