BE MY VALENTINE...
You know we here at hml don't usually go in for big overly commercial holdiays with all the trimmings (ok so clearly that's a lie) and particularly not ones named after Roman matyrs that include crappy bunches of over-ripe roses and really bad poetry in hallmark cards as part of their celebration rituals... that said however, this year we thought what the hell, everyone else is getting on board so why don't we. One of us came to the party with a beautifully romantic range of cards for lovers only and the other managed a heart shaped arrangement of rose petals and book on Frank Lloyd Wrights 'Falling Water ' for her beau ... not a bad effort for two dyed in the wool valentine humbugs.

Typically however, in true hml fashion, we managed to flip the shopping schedule and concentrate our attention on crafty romantic treats perfect for us while on the hunt for presents for our significant others... not that we're dropping any hints.
Katrina Weber's heart shaped vintage clutches, Anne Weckart's black hearted brooches and IG Design valentine magnets (the perfect accompanyment to a fridge full of champagne and chocolate) would all do the job quite nicely. So now let's see what we actually end up with...
oh and a happy valentines day to you all.
