Around Town : Valentine's Day Inspiration

February 1st is tomorrow! That said, Valentine's Day is in the air. I walked by fancy New York flower shop Ovando and was struck by the fun, over-sized acetate hearts hanging in the windows. I love how they backed the pink acetate with a light bulb, I bet it looks so beautiful at night!

It sort of reminded me of this project from the February issue of Living in 2000, which is easy to make (especially with kids - they're made from the wax of crayons) and essentially shares the same concept. I would love to make them really big like the hearts in the window above!
