Home Front: I ♥ Stationery

There is hardly a better occasion for stationery fanatics than Valentine's Day. But don't slow down if you don't have a sweetie. Friends, siblings, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors, bakers and candlestick makers all love getting valentines. Here are a few great finds from local stores -- all in Carytown:

Treasure's greeting cards from Mongrel ($5.50 apiece) are even more adorable because they're 3-D. Nothing says "I love you" like a pair of romantic pop-up birds.

Merrymaker's hot-pink, red and gold stationery ($18 for the large set of eight and $14 for the small set of 10) is an elegant choice for the amorous letter writer who has more to say than will fit on those perforated cards found at the grocery store that come two dozen to a box.

World of Mirth has a great selection of vintage valentines that say "I care" in a hip, retro, fun kinda way ($2 each). Or get the valentine postcard book ($10) so you can maximize the sweetness you send to the world or make a giant cupid collage ($10).
