Happy Valentine's Day!
We all have our weaknesses, right?
I have many. Because there's nothing like surrender to a burning need.
I love...Krinkles. At left, note a Krinkles Valentine display.
A few years ago, at Dillards during a Black Friday shopping spree (That's what they call it, right, shopping the day after Thanksgiving?), I found my first Krinkle.
It was an ornament, an adorable poodle dog in the most amazing little shoes.
It looked like this:
Dreadfully expensive, of course. Well, I mean, for an ornament. Especially considering I have boxes and boxes of gorgeous, expensive ornaments already.
But what can I say? There was that burning need. I had to have that Krinkle poodle for my own to put on my tree.
So yes. I bought it. And I've never regretted surrendering my hard cash to that particular blazing desire.
Is a Krinkle the sort of gift you give your fave guy at Valentines? Oh, probably not. Too whimsical. Not, as a rule, a guy kinda thing.
Okay. I still buy them. For myself. So...Happy Valentine's Day to me! And to you, too.
Got plans? Do you give a Valentine to your sweetie? Mine gets a conversation heart or two and a great, big kiss. Followed by a sweetly and sincerely whispered, "I love you."
