I know I've already told you how much I love Valentine's Day, so I won't bore you with more on that. I'm sure you've probably heard or read the famous legend of how Valentine's Day came to be, so I won't bore you with that either! No, this week I have a bit of a surprise for all of you -- I'm running a contest!
Yes, and this week's song is the contest. I'll explain: If you can guess why I have chosen this particular Moody Blues tune, I will send to you, at no cost to you, this item from my shop. The first person with the correct answer receives the prize! (Your answer must be in the comments of this blog entry for it to be considered valid for this contest. Do not email or private message your answer to me. And I do apologize, this contest is good only in the United States and Canada, because I can only ship within the United States and Canada. Thanks in advance!)
[Note: Contest ends at 12:01 PM EST, Tuesday, 17 January 2012.]
Here's the song that begins both our Valentine's Day shop hopping for the week and this contest:
Now, let's go shopping!
Valentine's Day Gift Shop Number 1
Shop name: countercouturedesign
The human heart is a beautiful thing. Just take a look at this gorgeous red scarf with a heart silk-screened right on! Perfect for a doctor or your favorite quirky valentine.
Valentine's Day Gift Shop Number 2
Shop name: Bella Ray Designs
It's been a while since I featured a guitar pick, and this one really caught my eye with its lyrics from one of my favorite Dave Mathews Band songs Crash Into Me. But you can have it personalized with something else if you prefer. This one's perfect for that guitar playing Valentine in your life.
Valentine's Day Gift Shop Number 3
Shop name: Mary K Creation
Does your favorite Valentine have a heart so dark that you couldn't help but fall for her? Well, tell her so with this beautiful little black heart necklace. There are other colors to choose from in this shop to suit your particular Valentine's heart, plus matching earrings are also available for a separate purchase.
Valentine's Day Gift Shop Number 4
Shop name: North Country Comforts
Simple, but direct! This lovely pillow cover will let that special someone in your life know exactly how you feel about him or her.
Valentine's Day Gift Shop Number 5
Shop name: Lychee Kiss
Who is at the center of your heart? Well, you can let that special lady know this Valentine's Day with this sweet initial heart in a wreath with cubic zirconia dewdrop bracelet. Very pretty and fun, because the heart can spin with delight. I like that the maker even provides them in silver tone at no extra cost. Lovely!
Be sure to drop back by next Friday when we will continue to track down Valentine's Day gifts before shipping and receiving becomes an issue. After all, Valentine's Day really is just around the corner now and you don't want to be stuck at the last minute having to buy a grocery store box of candy to present to your special one -- again. Just kidding! I bet you remember birthdays and anniversaries too! ;-)
Have you guessed why I chose Tuesday Afternoon yet? I'd love to read all about it in the comments below.
Until next week, have a great weekend everyone and take care out there!
