Your heart on your sleeve

Happy Valentines Week! Though I know that there's a lot of cynicism about this made-for-Hallmark holiday, it's become pretty important to Mr. Barefoot and me, as it marks our first date, three years ago. Who knows whether we were shot by Cupid's arrow that night, absorbed the romanticism in the air, or finally got our timing right (like finding an empty taxi with its light on, in the midst of a downpour) - we'll surely be savoring our good fortune all week.

Remembering the carved heart cufflinks I posted about - but never purchased - for my sweetie nearly a year ago, I wondered what other goodies were out there to go with the French cuff shirt.

Leaving your prints all over your partner is one sure way to mark him/her as "off the market." I like the subtlety of these silver hearts.

You could take the more literal route, with this anatomical heart.

Add color, for a slightly more gothic look.

Or go for the old-fashioned wood cut.
