  5. Oh I love LOVE! Particularly when it is pink.

  6. What a brilliant post - and so true re the UK. £3-worth of roses will be at least £10 come Valentine's Day, and every newspaper shop, stationers', supermarket etc will be pushing cards like mad. We love it though.

    I loved the cupid face down with the arrow in his back, and the 'Peggy is a whore' postcard. Priceless!

    Sorry I'm late visiting, I was teaching yesterday (Saturday) and we've been out for Valentine's lunch today (Sunday) so only just started blog-hopping! Happy Pink Weekend, and hugs from the UK.
