Pretty but Not Ordinary for Valentine’s Day

I seldom actually drink tea but I like pretty, vintage and delicate tea cups and saucers. Best of all, I like when they are not a set, all perfect and all matching each other. A mismatched set has more charm and variety and seems less tight laced and formal.

Whether you drink a lot of tea or just a little, a pretty cup and saucer is a treat and just nice for Valentine’s Day for someone who doesn’t want chocolates, candy, flowers or much of the traditional Valentine romance. Instead, think of a teacup (don’t forget the matching saucer because the actual cup and saucer should match or you just look like you are very bad at washing your dishes).

This blushing vintage pretty comes from Etsy. It’s a bit expensive but it really suits Valentine’s Day.

Gorgeous Sparkling Brooch

See, I’m not that hard to please and I don’t have incredibly expensive tastes. this daisy sparkler is only $14. I would love this for Valentine’s Day. I don’t have a Valentine and I’m not especially looking for one. They are really only seasonal, Valentines I mean. Brooches never go out of style, or season!
