Anatomical Valentines

Ah Valentine's Day! Avoid those gooey cards and blah boxes of candy and go a little sideways for your Valentine. My husband is both horrified and amused that I move so many of my Anatomical Heart soaps each Valentine's Day. I think it's a great way to show someone some love, with internal organs!

Here are some of my favorites from Etsy (I have the pendant, and I "heart" it, please don't hit me).
