All too often, Valentine’s Day leaves me drowning in a sea of pink hearts, bad chocolate, and with runny nose from my allergy to flowers. Just as I am beginning to swear off all Valentine’s Day purchases and celebrations, sisters-in-law, Alyssa and Joslyn Krismer remind me the holiday of love doesn’t necessarily mean another heart hugging plush bear. They sell uniquely designed potted flowers and branches of leaves made of fabric on their Etsy shop, Jane Joss. I’m in love with the visible stitching on the leaves and flowers and the patterns they use. Finally, a Valentine’s Day gift that will leave me smiling instead of sneezing!
