St. Valentine’s Day Forever

I’m hoping that Mrs. E. isn’t reading this post. SPOILER ALERT: Your Valentine’s Day Gift is revealed.

I love to give Mrs. E. flowers, but in this economy™ gifts that last a bit longer than cut flowers seem smarter. And speaking of smarter take a look at these wonderful confections from Mandy of A la Parisienne:

I stumbled upon them thanks to a posting at Southern Chateau (thanks!) and thought that these floral brooches, which remind me so much of one that my father bought for my mother at the House of Dior or perhaps Chanel in Paris in the 1970’s, were the perfect thing to smarten up a little black dress, a tweed blazer or a camel overcoat.

Each piece is handmade and one-of-a-kind, so be forewarned, when they sell, they’re gone. True luxury — limited edition art at a wonderfully friendly price. Click each photo to go to the etsy shop and have a look. You may find something special for someone special. As Bobby Short is singing on my stereo, “Is it at long last love?”
