Think chocolaty, act locally

So now that the surprise won’t be spoiled, I can tell you about the Valentines I got for my Julia and my mum-in-sin. I wanted to get locally-made chocolate, and I was almost out of time before the blizzard, so I went to City Feed and Supply.

For Julia, a Vianne Chocolat (Jamaica Plain) Organic Pug Bar – a chocolate bar molded as a row of sitting pugs; only $3 yet 25 cents of each is donated to the MSPCA-Angell.

For mum, a packet of two EHChocolatier (Somerville) Pecan Clusters (turtles -- she loves the animal and the confection).

And I’d found the perfect gift wrap at Boomerangs -- a handmade dog-print fabric pouch with a bone-print ribbon and button closure, and a pottery jar that said “GRANDMA’S TREATS”. And I added a homemade card and whatnot.

And they sent me the sweetest cards – including one from Ursula!
