So in case you hadn't guessed it, this week's roundup is valentines! And of course there is no better place to go when hunting down the cute and handmade than Etsy! Needless to say there were oodles and oodles of adorable valentines to chose from, but I picked a sampling of my personal faves, and then I broke them down into two groups to share with you all!
First up is the not so girly (i.e. not smothered in pink and red, and oozing with hearts) group. Because quite honestly I sometimes think that "typical" valentines are a little vomit inducing (if you know what I mean), all that mush and gush, and lace, and blah blah blah. I much prefer things that are a little quirky and different, because it's about the sentiment, and letting someone know that you care, and that doesn't need to be said with red and pink and all things tacky!
Top to Bottom, and Left to Right: PaperMichelle, perfect dressipe, imeondesign, Storeyshop (I of course being the Facebook junkie that I am was drawn to this valentine, but she tons of other great "I love you more than..." cards in her shop), Alf, Persimmons
The second group is indeed the girly group, because let's face it I'm a girl, and I like the romantic sentiment behind Valentine's Day. However, these valentine's are far from tacky, and even though they are littered with shades of pink, they are sweet and classy.
