Getting Ready For A Valentine's Day Party

Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday.
We don't get the day off from work but we should.
This is my third Valentine's Day blogging.
These are some of my favorite things I
found shopping on the web.
This is from Sur La Table $10.00 
 The salt and pepper shakers come with the little cage
and it is at Pottery Barn for $34.00.

Pottery Barn Set of two heart shaped dishes $18.00 and
4 love letter dinner napkins $30.00 There is still the
table runner for sale. I posted it last year here.

This is at Pottery Barn on their site. I didn't get the price
'cause I didn't realize at the time that heart and key
to the your heart were such big valentine party themes.

Pottery Barn tea towel $14.00. Can be monogrammed.
Big Lots monkies $5.00 each

For all who love Paris, I bought two of these at Target
for $1.79 each. (in store) They are sold as salad plates
but I'll probably use them as lunch plates. They are
online, too.

I originally found this poster on an
international website for sale
and now I found it at

 I found this card at Target this week. It's by Papyrus and it's
expensive at $8.95. It's a beauty, even more in person
and it's the kind of card I'd like to receive.

hi Susan! Good ol' PB. We have a local store here that is always getting overstock, slightly damaged PB stuff. It is called DownEast Outfitters. They are in the Western us and CA has one in Irvine and in Roseville. I have found some incredible items there that are PB things for a fraction.
