February 2, 2014 

CHOCOLATE FROGS: Who says you have to give hearts on Valentines Day? Kiss a frog prince instead, or in this case eat one! These green foil chocolates are from Lindt and weigh 3.5 ounces. You'll find them among all the red stuff in the valentine candy aisle at Target stores.

BABYWEAR: Handmade soft little capes or pullovers comewith matching hat and booties at Fashion Attic 4 Kids in Columbia. On Main Street in the Old Distillery Center, you'll find these new items as well as consignment gently worn clothing for children. The knit sets are $19.99.

ELEPHANT DISHES: Look for pretty cloisonne metal saucers to add color to your dresser or a tabletop to hold jewelry or candy. Remember, elephants shown with their trunks raised mean good luck. These are $12.99 at Eckert's Country Store in Belleville.
