Valentine's Day Etsy Feature Extravaganza!!!

Today, I am featuring some Valentine's Day goodies from some very talented Etsians, and even some vintage too!

Coincidentally, do you know the history behind V-Day? It exists because a Roman emporer executed a priest named Valentine for performing illegal marriages that were considered detremental to the Roman Empire's attempts at building an army. Valentine saw this law as unfair, and secretly married couples. He was then thrown in prison, and beaten to death. AND GUESS WHAT?

THE ROMAN EMPORER WHO EXECUTED HIM HAS MY LAST NAME! LOL
