Classic and Timeless Designs.....I had to feature one of my favorite International textile and clothing designers. I hope to one day carry his line at Botany's Desire. The designs are simple but not boring. Unique but not over the top. You can just look at the line and know immediately that the quality of the textiles are amazing. No cheap stuff used!! You just never what he is going to come up with next.

Chocolates by Jurgen Lehl.

" Every February, candy, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine.The romantic history of the patron St. Valentine's Day is shrouded in mystery.

One legend contends that St. Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. St. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret.

When St. Valentine's forbidden actions were discovered, the emperor ordered that he be put to death on February 14th. To commemorate this martyr to love, we celebrate St. Valentines Day around the globe. "
