Hearts have descended on our household! I am not a big believer in the level of hype and commercialism that seems to have taken over (or created) Valentine's day. But I am of the mindset that any occasion that encourages us to share our love for those around us should be celebrated. So in our house it is all handmade.

We spent $3 on several packages of paper lace hearts at the Dollar Store and Wren and I have spent all night covering the house in them after working a little magic on them.

But more than lace hearts should fill a house. And I love these words from Robert Frost.

rumpled beds, and dirty laundry aside we should focus our energies on looking for the things we love at any moment. Not the things we want to change. Although there is a time and place for that too, this week it is not.

And for those wondering when they'd be up, I've listed a handful of vintage children's sweaters in my Etsy shop and will have another bunch up later today.

Have full and happy heart this weekend friends!

Agreed! If a holiday encourages us to really take the time to show our love, I heart it. I heart hearts. =]

And omg, I love that vintage peachy girl's sweater in your shop, such a fab find! What an awesome endeavor Hey Oyster is.
