A Valentine's Day Collection of Tantalizing Treats and DIY Trinkets


It's already here and you may be running late with ideas on what to treat your favorite person with on this special day. There's no time to create an elaborate meal or dessert. You want something simple and doable. Am I right?

I have a collection of tantalizing treats and DIY trinkets from my past blog posts, so you can scroll through this post and see if there's anything up your alley that you can bake and create with ease.

With each treat or DIY craft, I'll have the link to the post where you can get directions on how to make each and every delectable dessert or beverage. The easy DIY crafts include two projects using felt and one shabby chic card. If you don't have a sewing machine, these can also be hand-stitched.

We'll start with the crafts.

This scone recipe is practically the same as the one above but is made with Einkorn flour and butter.

A Red Berry Delight Any Time of the Year! (LINK TO POST)

A raspberry cream cheese pie using fresh or frozen berries. It's easy but you need time to chill the filling and after you put it together. But it's worth the wait!

Ruby Tea Biscuits - from The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook.

A Cozy Time for a Kitty Latte (LINK TO POST)

My version of Starbucks' London Fog Latte using Earl Grey Tea and why I call it a Kitty Latte!

A recipe for white rose iced tea.

There you are! I hope you found something you'd like to make for your loved one, whether it's something tasty or crafty.

Even though it's a bit late to gift someone an item from my online shop for Valentine's Day, I hope you check out my Etsy shop - Lady Elsie Lee - from time to time. It's never too late to send a gift after a holiday has passed!

I have more carpet bags similar to the one shown above and other clutches, and totes. Not to mention beaded necklaces, letter pendants, and Celtic Knot jewelry.

Recently I have made some new necklaces - fabric pendants using a floral rose print flannel. They're dainty! I'll be adding more in the near future using blue Toile fabric. All of them are set in silver metal pendant trays with silver chains. Here's the link to my shop HERE. You can also find the shop link at the top of my blog.

Have a great Valentine's Day!
