Unique Gifts for Valentines Day

Disclaimer: I do not promote Valentine's Day. I think love should be celebrated everyday, not just one day of the year. On that note I have chosen items from Etsy that aren't jewelry, flowers, candy, chocolates, a proposal from a man who might not really love you, or any of the common "gifts" on this day.
I say we celebrate the love for crafty people and their art!

I absolutely adore this mixed media art piece by LethaColleen. It has gorgeous colors and a beautiful use of texture. Its one of a kind and in a class all its own.

You might be asking yourself...isnt lingerie a typical gift for Valentines day? Well this isn't lingerie its a custom made tribal bellydancing bra by ReadMyHips. Not only could you get the bra you could also give a gift of some classes with the Read My Hips tribal dance troupe, if you are a local Chicagoan.

If he or she loves Bettie why not get them this linen Bettie Page pillow by tutae? Not only can they enjoy the fun imagery but also its practical for people who want a more one of a kind accent pillow for their couch or bed. R.I.P. will be missed.

Something vintage...but something revamped vintage. Perfect example is this super cute and again one of a kind revamped sweater by PierogiPicnic. This sweater even comes with a cute little matching brooch so its like two gifts in one!!
Alright, so I will admit...these choices are extremely biased because well they are all gifts I would adore. But then again...would you have seen these totally unique gifts in any other valentines day list??????

Look me in the eye when I'm talking to you!!

I believe eyes say a lot about a person. When I approached fellow etsians about being featured in my blog, I was quite amazed at the response. The middle picture, which is a gorgeous ACEO done by 5erg , immediately struck me. It was like looking in the mirror and seeing my eye. Really beautiful but really almost seems to be a sad eye. Maybe that means I need to smile more!

I'll just sit and think about it..............

Hey Guys-

Just wanted to post a link to a great fundraising event in Chicago!!! Its at Exit on North Avenue and its fun time sponsored by PBR and others. Its a great way to have fun and give back to a wonderful cause...the Chicago Bully Breed Rescue! Lots of raffle prizes for your dog, yourself, or that special someone! Also PBR giveaways as well!
Pitbulls need love too!

First Blog post....

So after a long stint and some vacation on Live Journal. I have chosen to create a blog on this website. I figure...livejournal is for when I was younger and more personal, this blog can be something that will be a resource for many people.

Let me explain why....

-------I love finding new and fun things that most people would overlook or never discover.

-------I enjoy funny stories of everyday life.

-------I want to help you with whatever you want. Need advice? Go ahead and ask. Need some advertising space...let me know! I am here to help and teach.

Therefore, I have decided to start to blog in an effort to entertain but also with the purpose of exposing people to new and wonderful things!

So please come back often!
