Pretty Surprises

Opinions on the necessity and usefulness of a holiday like Valentine’s Day are diverse. Some people insist on a romantic dinner or expensive gift. Many families celebrate the day of love with thoughtful gifts and treats, and encouraging kids to be kind to others. Some people do not celebrate Valentine’s Day at all, because of it’s hugely commercial elements, which have been dominant for the last few decades.

Regardless of controversy, many girlfriends, wives and moms may wake up to a scrumptious breakfast in bed tomorrow morning. Kids will enjoy cookies with pink icing. Couples will dine on heart shaped pizza. Even furry family members will be treated to something special! Surprises and delights will fill the day.

Not everything about this holiday has to be pink. A treasury entitled Surprise Surprise is filled with wonderful green gifts that have a hint of spring warmth. This collection was curated by Dalim, and features team members bstudio, 2 Much Yarn, and Wabi Brook Studio.

Cats and dogs need a little extra love, too! This treasury was inspired by Vicki Diane’s Artists Exposed series, and features the four legged assistants of many Etsy artists. Oh Canada Team members Ocean Pearl Jewellery and Leah Jane Designs have joined in the fun.

I'm glad I checked in on the blog tonight, or I wouldn't have known that I was in a treasury! It was already full so I couldn't comment, but I clicked!
