A Valentine for My Readers

I am so excited to announce my first ever Etsy Shop Sale! In honor of Valentine's Day I have added many  new items to my little shop. I invite you to stop by and take a look!  To take advantage of our sale simply click on "Apply Shop Coupon Code" and then type in code "LOVE15" at checkout to receive 15% off any of my in stock items. The coupon code will be valid through the whole month of February.

I must tell you that putting these new pieces together reminded me of when I would prepare my Valentines for my classmates in elementary school.  Each of my items is made with the same love and care and with the intent to delight the receiver. Hand-embroidered stitching, interesting, silly and vintage buttons and/or special embroidered messages are included to help you communicate to your best friends just how special they are to you!

We seem, no matter what age, to be almost too careful about revealing all the love we have for those near and dear to us,  though perhaps I have just revealed my conservative Pennsylvania Dutch heritage.  I used to think it was just my mom’s careful way to keep me humble, but later learned that it is part of a whole culture that comes with showing loyalty and love instead of openly expressing love through words.  I think both are important.

No matter how you tell people you love them, I believe it is so important to let them know that they are special.  The world has become too hard, and too violent these days.  I pray that this Valentine’s Day be a day of peace, gentleness and love.  My wares express the sweetness of home and home-made love, for that is what I think is most needed in this world.

Thank you for visiting me at Little House!  With love, jane
