Last year I got all excited when I found a Triumph Tigress-esque valentine. Well it turns out I am a very lucky girl. Because a designer at Pottery Barn was probably one of the people I was bidding against on eBay. They feature the same valentine on a $12 card set, in a $20 plastic tumbler set, a $26 melanine plate set, in a paper heart garland and in a floor puzzle (available only in the stores.) Here’s a buying tip – if you just want the scooter plate, go to the stores and grab one. They’re just $6.50 and display wonderfully. The folks at my local store said everything would go on sale the week before Valentine’s Day.
This is a limited edition screen print of “The Weekenders,” taken from UK artist Pete McKee’s latest exhibition “Great Moments in Popular Music.” I just love the Northern Soulie aspect to this scene, all the red and white and the little heart on the girl’s helmet â€¦ (clearing throat) which makes it perfect as a gift for Valentine’s Day. These special prints are individually hand printed, and finished by the artist. Each is also signed and numbered. There will only be 75 copies made and the prints measure 60 cm x 60 cm. Cost? Â£345.00
You will want to only give this birthday card to your very best friends because it is so freakin’ cute! The scooter sounds true and the dog’s bark is especially precious. And it can stand alone on a shelf as a display. These Up With Paper cards can be had at Cost Plus World Markets in their wrapping paper/stationery section or you can order online for $7.50 a piece here:
Moscato Bella 2010 is made from muscat canelli grapes and apparently is on the sweet side and is good for making wine cocktails. So this might make an excellent Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone. You can order it online for $12 not including shipping and if your state allows. Haven’t been able to find it at a major retailer yet.
