After all the dynamic stop-you-in-your-tracks red that I’ve been wearing, when Valentines Day rolled around, I was in the mood for some romance.
And this shawl fit the bill perfectly. When I was in Portland over the summer, I found this vintage piano shawl at an antique boutique in a blush color that wasn’t only a killer deal, but complimented my skin tone marvelously. In flamenco, these large shawls are called mantons and are tied in beautiful ways and used as an accessory during dances. I can’t wait to create a flamenco costume around this shawl!
What did you wear on Valentines Day?
This is my absolute favorite Valentine’s Day sugar cookie recipe. The secret ingredient? Sour cream. It keeps the cookies moist and wonderful for days! They are totally irresistible — I just ate three.
Top with a cream cheese icing and you’re good to go for Valentine’s Day!
Valentines Day is a great excuse to show the ones you love a little l-o-v-e. Here’s a darling and economical Valentines Day gift idea from the heart:
Send a card.
Who doesn’t love getting mail? Your loved one will be thrilled to get something in the mail (particularly from someone other than Visa!) It’s easy! Take a few minutes and go to Send Out Cards to send a free Valentine’s Day card of your choice, postage and all. Make it memorable and remind your loved one about three of your favorite memories together. Sending a card is a gesture from the heart and speaks particularly to those who have the Love Language of Words of Affirmation. They’ll love it!
Case in point: I sent a note to my Dad this week reminiscing some great memories we’ve shared over the years. He was really touched and it totally brought us closer. Isn’t strengthening a relationship with a loved one worth a few minutes of your time? Send love this Valentine’s Day with a gift from the heart!
