                                                Valentine's Day History
Saint Valentine's Day, commonly shortened to Valentine's Dayis an annual commemoration held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions. The day is named after one or more early Christian martyrsSaint Valentine, and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD. It was deleted from the Roman calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI, but its religious observance is still permitted. 

It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.'s_Day

But somewhere in here I'll find a little time to snuggle up with my hubby!  I wanted to wish you all a Happy Valentines Day and give you a little insight on how it all started...

Oh if you're interested in having a set of your own shop my Etsy shop @ Etsy.Com/shop/SublimeDesignHome

Now that we have that out of the way.  What shall we talk about today?  Mmmmm....Mmmm.. Oh yea, I know! You know that I have a love for designing. Right?  Did you know I was an Interior Designer too?  So I've turned a lifelong hobby into another stream of income.  (Insert wink here *).. Smart Eeh!

Oh sorry I can get sidetracked sometimes.  Back to my point... I've grown to sell my merchandise in Five different places! Yes I did say.. Uno, Dos, Tres, Cuatro, Cinco... 5!    How? Well..Alot of the Diy tutorials you see here on the blog is actually my merchandise.I know exciting right! Now do you forgive for my absences? Lol..
So Lets see.. Three of the Five places I sell are in my hometown.  However, I do sell online too..So if you're every in Chattanooga, Tn you can find work inside two stores which are:

1.  Sublime Design Home located inside of Vintage Antiques in Hixson, Tn (once inside look for my address 508 Reloved Ave.  &

2.  Bettiville 804 Rossville, Ga.,

Now during the spring - fall months you can catch me 2x out the month at the

3.  Chattanooga Market (which is an outdoor marketplace for everything hand-made or grown),
4.  Online @
5.  Online @

My extra curricular activities turned hobby all started when... Well when I was born actually.  My mom was a self taught seamstress.  Every piece of clothing in her closet and ours were all hand-made.

She also was and still is really really good at finding bargains and turning something old into something new. Yelp I was blessed with the gene.  And I wouldn't have it any other way!  It has taken a great deal of time and failures to be able to perfect a craft that is genuinely sell-able.

But hey people do it all the time. So I would like to know what you're Awesome at?

Up-cycled Sewing Table

Guess what?  I have a very simple Diy project for you today.  It's so simple even a non Diy'er can do it!  So I'm calling this one a "You can do it Diy table."  It's so versatile and be used in small spaces as well as a variety of different uses.  So here's the skinny... It's really a re-purposed sewing machine table.  When I purchased it the machine had already been removed.  So all I did was remove the remaining pieces on the inside.
