Sailors’ Valentines – A Truly Romantic Valentine’s Day Gift: Sailors’ Valentines are an old romantic art form using shells, I’ve always wanted to make one or find a vintage one. I love that the shells tell a story of love. The craftsmanship is absolutely amazing, and would make a great Valentine’s Day gift. You can find some decently priced ones on Etsy, but they can also get pricy. Do a little Google searching and I’m sure you’ll find one you’ll like.
