I know it's after the fact but these are most excellent. Valentines via Kate Spade's BEHIND THE CURTAIN website.


Among other things, I'm inexplicably and endlessly fascinated with old grain mills. The proportions, no matter how haphazardly thrown together seem always to make perfect sense.

There is a hidden kind
Of humble goodness
I love in others

Only an aeon
of refining fire
Could make it mine

But sometimes it's as if
I were already burning.

Anne Porter
