Happy Valentine’s Day!

February 14, 2023

Ahhhh! February …. long celebrated as the most romantic month of the year. If this rings true for you, why? Is this the month when hugs and kisses are most popular? Maybe it’s more about exchanging flowers, cards and a giant heart-shaped box of chocolates? No matter the reason, apparently what began as a pagan celebration way, way back in the year 270 AD, was officially designated as a “romantic holiday” in 1375 by the English poet, Geoffrey Chaucer, in his poem “Parliament of Foules.” If nothing else, his “designation” kicked off an annual tradition of card giving, at the very least.

And what about the cards? Remember those vintage Valentine’s cards shared with hopeful wannabe elementary school classmates? Then this card giving thing morphed into pastel colored candy hearts with sayings like “Be Mine” ….. “U R Cute” …. “Crazy 4U.” Do candy hearts still exist today? If so, would they say “Text Me” …. “Ur Tweet is Sweet” …… or maybe “Friend Me on FB.”

Flambé is not into flowers or candy (much), but she does have a few lovers and tons of friends. So in honor of all her followers, whether romantically inclined or otherwise, she’s just popping in to wish everyone a wonderfully romantic Valentine’s Day!

Now go kiss your sweetheart!


  1. How fun! I love the blue hearts with wings dangling at the top and your modern candy heart messages crack me up! It inspired me to look up candy heart messages which was so fun (https://www.rd.com/article/over-10-years-of-candy-hearts-sayings-valentines-day/). I found in 2008 there was one with “NATURE LOVER”! Have a fun day!

    1. Meow! Many thanks Elaine. I couldn’t get Flambé outside to party in our new 2 foot drifts, so we drew hearts in the snow as she sat in the window and purred!

    Happy belated Valentine’s Day to all of you! I always love the way to use the tangles, but I have to say, Flambe is looking a little creepy!


    1. Ha! Kinda creepy is right. I’m thinking the image of the bigger than life size Flambé is all in her imagination; she imagines herself a ferocious tiger! Hope you and Art had a sweet valentine’s! 💜 💕 ❤️
