The Candy Dish

Those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile know that I love Valentine's Day. I know with all my griping about dating, flirting, and just general dating confusion, you would think I would hate Valentine's Day. But no, I love it. Maybe I love it because I like the burst of red and pink decorations during the bleakest months of the year. Or maybe I love it because I love love. Either way, single or not, I love me some Valentine's Day. And today I bought a new Valentine's Day decoration, as pictured here on one of my book shelves:


Upon further inspection I wondered if maybe I was revealing my true feelings though with this little guy. I mean, we are talking about a monster shaped candy jar with hearts and angel's wings on it. It's kinda scary. But it's also sweet and innocent. Hmm. Any psychologists out there?

Or maybe it has no deeper meaning. Maybe it's just cute. That's the option I'm going with.

I love it!! Like I said, I may break down and buy one, too! He's so CUTE! And I don't think it says anything about you other than that you like awesome stuff. :)

Adorable. If you like Valentine's Day you would like white day in Japan. Mar 14. On Valentine's Day girls buy chocolate for the boys they like. And then one month later the boys buy white chocolate for the girls. Presenting the girls with the opportunity to show your interest and the man to reciprocate in a non-verbal way. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Day

It is really cute. I don't think it looks like a monster at all. More like a bulldog puppy! Who doesn't love puppies at valentines day?

Yeah, Melissa, you're totally right. It does look like a bulldog puppy! So cute. I put my fingers in it, thinking it might bite, but it totally didn't so I guess it's not scary after all. ;)
