Some people take Valentine’s Day very seriously, and others make crocheted anatomically correct Valentines day gifts.
The humongous horror fans over at the Eat Your Heart Out blog are starting a pop-up shop in London that features the anatomically correct Valentines. The start-up is being run under the guise of Anatomical Snuff Box. The start-up is being sponsored by Kraken Rum, so the combination of gore and booze should give a few clues into the target demographic for these visceral Valentine’s gifts.
The incredible crocheted hearts are the work of textile artist Kate Jenkins. The ceramic heart-shaped cocktail sharer is the work of Bespoke Barware. What better way to say ‘I love you’ this February with a bunch of literally heart shaped crochets and ceramics? It’s all part of a horrific anatomically correct Valentine’s Day!
