Local Etsyians V-Day Wish List

Valentine's Day is never a huge production in our house. My husband currently works in the service industry, (and has since we met), so he never has the day off, and besides, I'm just not an overly sentimental person. V-Day is generally a bit cheesy for my taste. (If you've ever heard the story of how James asked me to marry him, and the reason behind it, then you know exactly what I mean--if you haven't heard it, I'll post about it soon).

But, who doesn't enjoy getting a gift every now and then?! So, I reminded my hubs last night that I had indeed bought him a gift for V-Day...(not-so-subtly telling him that he better get me something too...).

Hence, the text that I got while at work today: "Babe, I looked on your blog to see what you wanted for Valentine's Day, but couldn't find anything." I hadn't even thought to post a Valentine's Wish List, but since he asked...

This is a list of items listed on Etsy, but from local sellers only:

From Nella Designs Fine Paper Studio, located in Columbia, SC:
Custom Couple Silhouette Print with Date This listing is for an 8x10 and is only $20.

  6. I want to hear this proposal story you speak of! And I LOVE that oak tree print and that you've included local sellers---too cool. Hope you had a nice, low key Valentine's. We got burgers and saw a movie---simple and sweet. XO

  7. Thanks for the kind words everyone! Neo-Trad, the hubs and I will be venturing out to Pawley's Front Porch burger joint for our V-day celebration tonight...they're hosting a party for the debut viewing of the episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives where they are the feature dive! Proposal story to come, for sure--it is appropriately un-romantic, (as I requested), but still so sweet! Have a great week everyone!
