Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.
V-Day: The strange (yet interesting) “holiday” where you give something heart-shaped or chocolatey to the ones you love. Now, I realize there is more to it than that. I am generalizing just a tiny bit. But if you are already going to pick something up for loved ones anyway, why not get them something they can appreciate year round? Something like, oh I don’t know, art?
No surprise the crazy art lady is at it again- suggesting you pick up a unique original or lovey-dovey print. But I really do think its a good idea. In fact, it’s a great idea. But there’s just one tiny little problem. Today is actually Valentine’s Day (remember I mentioned that earlier), so why would I be advocating that you pick these up now?I Love You More than Chocolate $15 + Ampersand Love Screenprint $13.50
Well, it may be true that these pieces have a bit of V-Day fever to them, BUT each piece would also look great year-round in your home. And after today, it won’t really seem like a Valentine’s Day print anyway. So, there’s no “deadline” really. I mean, how can you put a time limit on gifts? Or art? Or home decor?
And if I still haven’t convinced you, I hope this will at least inspire you in the way that you think about future gift-giving holidays: practical meets awesome (meets art) is always a good way to go if you’re stuck.
