Oh Valentine’s Day - how bitter and sweet you can be. I never knew that the name might come from two men, both named Valentine, executed by the ancient Romans. A fitting story for those who find the day less than joyous. For those who celebrate the day of love, here are some beautiful pieces that are both hand made and made with a heart. Uncommongoods, in Brooklyn, New York, is one of my favorite sources for the unusual and the uncommon but still knowing there is quality and value in the selections. These little treasures can all be found at uncommongoods.com.
