St Valentine’s Day part deux

Bonjour!
Ha. Funny, unrelated story. I took hubby to PEI in 2008 and, because it’s very much a tourist destination they cater to both English and French tourists (though there’s a large number of Japanese tourists – so much so that our grade 4 teacher taught us to say hello and goodbye in Japanese) (I never used either until 3 years ago) so, as a result, all the hotel and tourist workers fluently speak French/English.
Every time we met someone who would say “Hello, Bonjour!” to us, I’d always reply in French. “Bonjour! Comment ca va?” And then they would reply in French. Hubby doesn’t speak French so I would tell the person, Merci pour la conversation en francais mais now you have to translate to English. I’m sure they all hated me. Because I did it all. the. time.

I’m not sure why I have jerky tendencies.

And now, back to the show! More Valentine’s goodies for your valentine! Don’t forget, if you’re going to purchase an item, check the store’s turnaround.

First up, ME! Another set that is reminiscent of Downton Abbey wear.

This husband and wife team are fantastic and are the epitome of what a home based business can be. They work hard but their hard work pays off. With almost 6000 sales, they set the bar for hard work and amazing promotion. And they’re just the cutest things ever.

This next business is a woman after my own heart. She makes the most amazing gadget gear bags and absolutely gorgeous quilts! But that’s not all! She makes padded camera straps. Bags. Lens pouches. Oh my goodness, there’s so much that she makes and picking just one is nearly impossible. However, this one has just been listed and is so sweet.

Next up is Chrysalis Jewelry, another semi husband-wife team. The jewelry is gorgeous but I thought I’d offer up this leather purse, which is quite stunning!

My friend Tammy, who is the most creatively talented woman I know (no seriously. She’s got the midas touch), is also the strongest woman I know. Perhaps, from this listing, you’ll figure out why.

I don’t know this store at all but I love pottery and really, what more do you need? This is for your sweetie, who loves to cook!

And, another store that I don’t know but I saw their rings and fell. in. love! These rings are made with recycled bottle glass, which is cut and tumbled for a smooth finish. I just LOVE the colours and the size. I’m very picky about the size of a ring and these are perfect. This is such an amazing gift for a valentine, and they have different colours.
