Love Shack - Bay-bee

Remember this song?  
You don't? 
This was going through my mind while I was
making some Valentine's Day goodies
for my Etsy Shop.
Now that I'm actually listening to it
I suddenly remember.
It's a little annoying.  
It was inspiration for this
which I actually made before Christmas.
It seemed appropriate for the 
upcoming Valentine's Day.

The original Love Shack Necklace.
Your very own
Tin Roof Love Shack
located at
(are you ready for this?)
53 Lover's Lane Drive!!

I also whipped up this bit o'fun.
I cut up old romance novels.
This one was actually
Romancing The Stone.
Like the movie.
And yes.
That is
the one,
the only,
I Can't Believe It's Not....(you know the rest)
(and the crowd goes crazy)
Not into Fabio?
Me either.
Yet, there he is gracing the cover
of this romance novel.
Romance novels.
I had to stand in line
at the Goodwill
with an armload 
of these babies.
Trying the entire time
to look like
I had no idea
what I was holding.

"Romance novels?  Wow!
How did THOSE get 
in my arms?"

And I cut up those pages and made this:
Don't you want to know
what it says?

It does NOT say
It says...

Here it is with ribbons.

Or, I suppose you could make one that says
Kick Me.
