It is interesting to see how you feel about holidays when the commercial establishment isn't involved. Since there were no big ads or commercials for Valentine's Day, it has almost passed unnoticed. However, I did remember these lovely Royal Copenhagen mugs I bought on sale. A great gift for each of us. They are nice for hot chocolate, decorations or even as planters. Saved by sales! The colored part is a silicone sleeve that can come off and insulates against the heat.
