for the true romantics.




For the second year in a row, the lovely duo of Hello Handmade Paperie are selling their own take on classic valentines. Each valentine is folded in the style of Jane Austen-era letters and features both one of Shanna Murray's illustrations of swallows (which are printed & then hand-painted) and Betsy Dunlap's absolutely gorgeous calligraphy, writing whatever words you'd like to say to your honey. So very, very romantic and something the receiver will hold on to forever. ($14 each)
