my funny valentine

i have to admit that i'm more of a celebrate your love on a whim or in surprising ways, rather than on a specific holiday in february. but this olivetti poster by ettore sottsass would make a great cheeky valentine's present (Z & i bought one for our last apartment, & gifted one to my sister and her husband this christmas). it's a fantastic size & adds the perfect sort of graphic touch to a white wall. get one here. unless you are in london, then go to the design museum and pick one up. it's worth the trip! (and someday, i swear, i'll own a real olivetti valentine typewriter. sigh.)

**correction: i do, however, love hand-made valentines swapped across cities, countries, continents & oceanscapes. but that's mostly because i love hand-made things exchanging hands, with love.
