Lovers Day Internet Finds

I know for a lot of people Valentines Day is a big deal.  For me, however, it's just sort of an "ehhhh" kind of holiday.  Don't get me wrong, I am definitely not anti-cupid.  Seeing elderly couples holding hands, watching new families on walks pushing baby strollers, my own husband bringing me home flowers "just because", all of this makes makes my heart swell.  I adore love, and celebrating the bond that couples share - I'm just not over the moon about glitter hearts, cheesey boxes of chocolate, pink teddy bears, and overpriced menu items simply because it's February 14th.

I did run across some adorable random internet finds this week on Etsy and other smaller websites.  These are things that I think are just plain cute that celebrate all things "love" related......nothing over the top, no cheesiness, and no cupids or pink teddy bears allowed.

One.  Do you guys remember that do it yourself craft that was going around on Pinterest last year  with the deck of cards "52 things I love about you"?  Well this is sort of the same, except a book version that you fill in the blanks.  {Only $10 here}

Two & Three.  Lately, I'm loving tea towels, especially these cheerful & adorable cotton ones printed on flour sacks.  {here & here}

Four.  I adore anything personalized, including this hand engraved necklace where you can customize the exact GPS coordinates of a meaningful place {i.e where you met your boyfriend, where you got married, etc}.  I would put the coordinates of the villa where Adam & I got married in Italy....le sigh.  {available on Etsy here}

Five.  Another great Etsy find!  This custom initials doormat is adorable!  {Hint, hint to my mom, if you're reading this!}  Many different options/designs available.  {available here}

Six & Seven.  Heart shaped pasta noodles + a wooden heart shaped spoon stamped with "Made With Love" are out of this world cute.  Definitely adds a whimsical touch to a romantic dinner for two.  {herehere}

Eight.  If you follow me on Instagram {andy_adler}, you might have seen these adorable vintage silver spoons that I bought for Adam & I.  They are hand stamped with "His Ice Cream & Her Ice Cream".  Die.  So stinkin cute!  I went back and bought more spoons as gifts for our friends.  The owner of this Etsy shop is so sweet too - always a bonus!  {view here}

Nine.  I love this little handmade jewelry holder printed with "You Changed My World".  Would be cute as a little wedding gift, or to keep for yourself and put on your nightstand :)  {available on Etsy here}
