I love Valentines Day. Some people complain about it being a commercial holiday but I disagree. Most holidays involve certain traditions which, usually requires a trip to the store to buy candy, food, sparklers, decorations, etc. Still, there is more meaning behind holidays themselves than the items needed to get into the spirit of them. Even if Valentines Day is a bit commercial, spending a little on flowers, candy, and pretty cards hardly seems sinister to me. Has anyone ever been angry to receive any of the above? Also, for most of the world, February is the starkest, coldest, grayest month of the year. And for those of us who know our color theory, nothing makes gray pop quite like pink and red.
This arrow pin was a great vintage find at an antique shop in Pennsylvania. My mom suggested wearing it with a red cardi for Valentines. Brilliant!
