Fancy Friday...Be My Valentine

I've always been a sentimental card person, keeping every single one ever given to me and I've been known to cry over Hallmark commercials and to tear up while reading cards in the Hallmark store. 

What can I say?  I'm a sap. 

I also love chocolate.  As in LOVE, LOVE.  And I've already told y'all how much I love the color red. 

So of course I love Valentine's Day,  a day that entails an abundance of three of my favorite things, which is why I'm dedicating this edition of Fancy Friday to all things Valentinesy...

Mug Love in Chocolate

Is this not the sweetest mug, ever?  How could you not have a smile on your face while sipping your morning coffee out of this?

Or how about this one? 

Mug Love in Strawberry Pink


Heart Measuring Spoons

I found these darling little things at Sundance Catalog.  My wish list at that place is about a mile long now, I think! 

Heart and Soul Ring

I also found this ring there.  Isn't it dreamy?....

Franco Sarto Gadget Wedge Sandals

I know these don't exactly scream "Valentine's Day" what with Valentine's being in the dead of winter and all but Spring can't be too far away cause Mr. Punxsutawney said so!  I can't wait to wear a pair of saucy hot wedges like these again! 

Steamed Cappuccino Cardi

Something about this just says romance to me. It immediately caught my eye before I even read the so eloquently worded description from Anthropologie... Creamy chiffon waves swirl through java hues on the warming comfort of Guinevere's cotton layer...  

I want.

Dot through the Heart Dress

Just simply love it!

Urban Angel Top

I can't imagine a more perfect top for Valentine's Day.  Pair it with some good fittin' jeans and some red boots....Smokin'!

Freshwater Cultured Pearl Heart Lariat

And how sweet is this little pearl and sterling silver necklace from Blue Nile? 

Write me a Love song Chandelier Earrings

Wouldn't these go perfectly with that lacy top up there? 
Roses by the yard Scarf

And what could possibly be more Valentinesy than this "hand crocheted in Nepal" red wool scarf with its whimsical little hearts and rosettes? 

The Afterhours Satin Pajamas in Dark Chocolate
I don't know how well you can see it in this photo but those are actually chocolate covered strawberries.  Sweet.  I'll take a pair of these and some real ones to eat too, please...
And that concludes this special Valentine's edition of Fancy Friday.
Hope y'all have a happy weekend.  I'm off to a 2nd grade field trip to the Science Center this morning and then to do a little shopping for the 3 "unfancy" valentines in my life. 


  1. As I was scrolling down, I kept saying and I want that, and I want have such good taste!

  2. This is a great, fun list! I think I love everything on here, especially the peekaboo heart dress. Everything you found is so CUTE!

  3. I think that I need that scarf...yup totally need.

  4. Happy Valentine's Day!

    I'll be celebrating in the Bahamas. Loved your picks for this Friday.

  5. I want every single one. Well, except the mugs. Because then I'd have to use them and just keep filling them with more and more coffee.:)

  6. Oh my goodness, I love the mugs, the necklace, the cute shoes! Great picks my friend! I hope you have a super Valentine's Day! have a great day!

  7. Love that dress with the heart cut out, the mugs are wonderful too!I'm blog hopping today and found your wonderful blog. I'm following along now. Wishing you happiness and a wonderful weekend ahead. Hugs, Katherine

  8. Um, apparently my budget will not tolerate me stopping by your site on a Friday! Hahahaha!

    We don't really get into Valentines anymore, we used to. Now it's more about the kids, and well this year specifically the baby we are having Thursday!

    Have a great weekend!

  9. I want every single thing on this list. Which totally confirms my suspicion that you and I are twins separated at birth. LOL! Happy Valentine's Day!

  10. You slay me! I want the cardi, dress and top... all three!!!! I'm kind of anti Valentine's Day- always have been, even when I had a "love" in my life... now , it's more like Happy Singles Awareness Day!!! :)

  11. I came back to see that necklace, the cute mugs and to say Happy Valentine's Day my friend. Have a great day!

  12. I love those coffee mugs!! Especially the chocolate one, it would be really hard to drink coffee out of it without thinking about chocolate. YuM!

  13. I got my mother similar measuring spoons from Red Envelope - they were super heavy and beautiful.

  14. I love so many of the things on your list here, but I absolutely adore the earrings! When I went and checked they were all sold out. :(
