Did you know that Saint Valentine was an Italian? His saint day was established way back in the year 496. That’s a long time for us to be celebrating Valentine’s Day! Learn more about the authentic roots of this love-filled holiday!
Happy Spring, everyone! I love springtime. The daffodils and crocusses brave the frosty wind and poke their blossoms up for us to enjoy. The hummingbirds begin migrating their way north. People slough off their heavy coats and mufflers and begin to really see each other again. It’s a time of renewed hope, renewed romance and fervent flirting! If you’re seeking ways to woo the one you love, to reawaken romance and to flirt with flair, these are all key aspects of courtship. I have three books to help you out! Learn how to sass like an Irish lass, how to seduce like a French mademoiselle, how to give the come-hither glance that every Italian woman knows by heart. Order any of these books by Easter – or all three – and I’ll send along a Lover’s Knot origami for you to share with that special someone! Just send me an email and let me know when you placed your order, and I’ll get that right out to you! Enjoy your spring flings! — Lisa Shea
St. Patrick’s Day is a day for everyone to drink Irish beer, to eat corned beef & cabbage, and to celebrate the great traditions of the Celts and Irish! What are some flowers to decorate your Irish-themed event with? Roses are always romantic and popular – think of ‘My Wild Irish Rose’! Foxglove represents youth and innocence. The Bells of Ireland are lucky flowers, for starting new projects. Heather is not only very traditional in Ireland – but different colors have different meanings! Pink is for luck, purple is for admiration, and white is for safety. Be sure to avoid lilacs and apple blossoms! Both are thought to be unlucky in Irish culture.
