Let me introduce you to Bella, a young woman who is smitten by the notion of everyone feeling loved and whether or not she herself will receive a hand-delivered Valentine, it will not cloud her enjoyment of this holiday for Bella is on a heart filled mission. Bella does not clutch a prettily wrapped heart to gift to her sweetheart, for Bella knows that on the 14th of February, displaying love and affection should not be limited to merely between sweethearts, everyone should be made to feel special, to be reminded that they are loved.So dressing up in her finest, including a hat adorned with all manner of snippets from velvet ribbons, a sequin, possibly a pearl or two,
and a shy smile on her face, for Bella knows the power of a sweet smile, from morning to dusk on the 14th of February, Bella will shyly introduce herself to those who she knows deserve a sweet heart to be bestowed upon them. Whether they might be feeling lonesome or someone who she knows shares their heart so willingly and selflessly to others each and every day of the year, Bella, for one day, lets love shine upon them.
Of course, such a day requires a new dress and so it is customary that each year, Bella, in anticipation of St Valentine’s Day will select a pretty fabric to create a Valentine Day dress. This year, her eye was caught by the springtime colours in this pretty floral fabricand she could not resist the extra purchase of a few delightful trims in the form of some raspberry velvet and delicate Cluny lace.Head to toe in pink, yes, she now feels ready, for there is work to be done!
Bella knows that sharing our hearts is a gift in itself which can be given any day of the year, to sweethearts and beyond.
(Note:- Bella stands at 9″ tall and the full height is 11″)
