Finding love on Etsy

Valentine's Day is right around the corner!! :)  I'm trying to start planning ahead this year, because I was so behind with all holiday stuff last year. {I may even still post pictures of our house decorated for Christmas-who knows?!? And maybe I'll do it in April. That's my style.} Anyway, I've been obsessively checking out etsy lately, and they have so many creative gift ideas for Valentine's Day!!

Key to My Heart ornament and keepsake in custom stamped cloth bag, by Paloma's Nest- Valentine, anniversary, or wedding gift
maybe cheesy- but I say romantic :)

CUSTOM where we met or where you were born map ornament (TM) by Paloma's Nest
This would also be such a cute wedding gift for friends! With the city they met in or if they're moving to a different city as newlyweds.

I CARRY YOUR HEART tiny text bowl and heart token set by Paloma's Nest
*the first three are all from palomasnest
This one I saw and couldn't help but think of my sweet friend, Anna. She's in the middle of planning her wedding, and this line is from her favorite poem (which I also love and I'm so glad she reminded me about!), and she's using it in different ways in her wedding. The poem is by e.e. cummings and is so beautiful.

Valentines Day Love Print  Fine Art Love Heart Romance
Belle Heart Strings Mobile
Ooh la la 22x22inch pillow recycled felt applique pillow - cocoa and oatmeal
SO cute!! (And maybe a DIY project??)

Hearts A Flutter 3D Hearts Box Natural Linen Fabric Bin Organizer Storage Basket Felt Recycled Handmade

School Girl Crush Guest Book

Guest Book Box and Sign - Vintage Floral Design
I'm obsessed with all the cute things in this girl's shop!!!!  I especially like (and need) one of her address file boxes- but it didn't really go with the "love" theme :) This is such a cool alternative to a traditional guestbook!

YOU ARE LOVED -words on your wrist- wooden bangle bracelet with stamped text
*also from palomasnest
What a perfect gift for a bff- it says "You are loved"

8 Valentine Mini Bone Gift Box
*from SignatureBonz
Don't forget about our furry loved ones! Especially if they have as much of a passion for food as Copper does :)
Custom Wedding Keepsake - Bouquet Tie / Keychain and Pendant
*from theCopperPuppy
This specific item is already sold, but it was saved in my favorites for a long time- so I had to share it :)  I'm sure they could make another one like it if anyone is interested though. I just LOVE this.
Every Day I Love You Print
*from kikicomin
This one is definitely my favorite of all though!  I love this phrase. Everyone else may read it differently, but to me,  it's a great reminder that we make the choice each day to love our spouse, family, friends, enemies. I love that it's such a definite statement- not based on feelings that may be strong one day and weak the next. It's a decision and a commitment. What a beautiful thought :) I love knowing that even on my very worst days, Nick makes the choice to love me- very cool. Hope you all have a wonderful, love-filled day!!


  1. Great finds! I love the key (first photo) -- I think it's sweet :)

  2. Joy! I LOVE these (and I really love that ceramic bowl -- how sweet and creative!) Oh, and the keychain that says "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine"? How perfect.

    How great is Etsy? You could never find anything as beautiful as these are in stores.

  3. Wow--thanks for finding all those super cute Valentine's Etsy items! love 'em!

  4. Remember how I told you I was looking for the perfect pillow before I could post a picture of my perfect trunk??? found it!! I am MAKING that ohh la la pillow! Like right's so cute! I died when I saw it...seriously. I AM DEAD!!!
