Did you hear that? A tiny whisper of an idea-- just in time for Valentine's Day.*

  1. 3 inch covered wedge heels in patent red. Great with any LBD. (Aerosoles, style Plum Tree)
  2. A great book, set in the cobble stoned alleys of Paris' Montmare district, about a mysterious stranger with gorgeous red shoes. Written by the author of Chocolat, this book is quirky, a bit unsettling and a look at a mother's protection of her children. (The Lollipop Shoes by Joanne Harris)
  3. One of my favorite coffee makers-- in RED! (Bialetti, Dama Gran Gala style)
  4. Give this bracelet to someone you adore, have them make a wish, tie it on and when the bracelet eventually falls off, their wish is said to come true. (Water Horse Studios, Wish Heart)
  5. Isn't life too short to wear black gloves everyday? (Knitty.com, style Freja mittens)
  6. Charming DIY glittered hearts. (pinned via google)
  7. A sweet hand painted necklace charm that makes my mind drift off to days spent in Paris. (Tuckoo and Moo Cow, Le Balloon Rouge pendant)
  8. An ancient handicraft in the Republic of Georgia (my current home), felting uses sheep's wool to create hats, scarves, animal figures, dolls, decorative fruit and more. thewoolery.com is a great resource for carded felting wools in a variety of colors. (The Woolery, felting wool)
  9. An all-time favorite of mine. I have these great latte bowls in the espresso size. (Anthropologie, latte bowls in color: chill)
*And, by the way, these are a few personal favorites I wanted to share (i.e. none of these businesses are paying me to display their products!).

I loved that book too! Rather dark, but mysterious. You should do a book list. I'd love to see what other books you've enjoyed!
