“Auntie Dina’s Anti Valentine Lavellieres”
3.5″ X 5″
A metal framed cameos with 20″ ribbon cords.

From the Artist:
Pink roses and three fragile glass hearts in danger of shattering on black lace show the fleeting time that we’re allowed to dream about the fairytale before we see “Into The Woods” and learn what really happens after “happily ever after”.

Three of my beauties have real black stone hearts hanging out there to dry. You know what I mean. Black hearts on black lace show the fleeting time that we’re allowed to dream about the fairytale before finding that darkness really can be a girl’s best friend, kinda like black diamonds.

Wear Auntie Dina’s Anti Valentines as a brooch pinned to your top or hat to use as a handy weapon on the next jerk that says,

“I’ll treat you like a fine china plate, Babe”. (This is likely a virgin college boy who’s read too many trench coat mysteries.)

“What’s a sweet young thang doin’ in a place like this”? (This from the mental giant with those black metal thingies hanging from under the back bumper of his Ford pickup truck.)

“Can I buy you a drink”? (Correct answer, “Yes. And then leave”)

“I need my space” (Then take him to the Grand Canyon and p u s h. He’ll have all the space he needs before the bottom arrives. )

Or leave it on the mourning ribbons you won at the Love Olympics to wear as a cameo against your chest to cover the hole where your heart used to be.

I only had the heart to make four. I’ll send one of these darlings to you in a fancy gift bag if you buy one at $21.50 plus $3.50 S&H.

Oh. And, unlike love, you’ll get a refund from me on any excessive shipping and handling.
