I seem to be a day or two behind this week with all of my posts…. But I had to post a recap of my Valentine’s day.
In general, I’m not a big advocate for the Valentine’s day holiday. Ages ago I was dumped on Valentine’s Day which may have started my slight of the day, but over the years I just found two things first, it has tended to be a let-down holiday and secondly & most importantly when people are in love they don’t need a holiday to celebrate it (IMO). I think it can be fun to go out with the girls and have fun on this day and I also think it’s awesome that couples go out to celebrate the day if they want to.
Last year I didn’t buy my guy anything special, but after dinner I surprised him with a scavenger hunt for dessert, just to do something fun. But this year my man sure did surprise me!
As far as I remember, we weren’t planning on doing a big deal with gifts. Apparently he said that to throw me off of trail & gifting scheme. He got me 3 totally thoughtful, fab presents just because:
He got me three very thoughtful presents!
The shiny zippo lighter guy isn’t actually a lighter but a hand warmer. I have no idea how I came across it initially but I had added this to my amazon favorites around Christmas time. My hands and feet are nearly always cold, so I thought a hand warmer would be the perfect winter gift. And he got it for me!
He also got me a vintage 50’s hat that’s been in my etsy favorites for quite some time, too.
It’s black velvet with silver beading, done by hand.
And lastly, he got me a needle felting kit from etsy, for a bunny!
Isn’t it the cutest bunny! I hope I’m able to make one just as cute! (Lots of exclamation points here….) I was so excited by this little guy.
The bulk of the roving is in a creamy white, so it seems I’ll be having a little white bunny on my hands soon.
I’ve been intrigued by the idea of needle felting and creating cute little creatures from it. I recall seeing some lambs and sheep that were adorable, and I just looked on in awe as to how to create them. But now I have my very own kit to learn from. *hip hip*
So I’m going to have warm hands, a fashionable head, and a (third) cute bunny rabbit. :) My honey totally knows me!
And here I am disliking Valentine’s Day and being all “bah humbug” about it. heh I may have to sing a different tune next year. :)
How do you guys feel about the holiday? Are you a fan or a bah-humbug like me?
