i’m going to write this post based on the assumption that you’ve heard (and, of course, loved) etta james – at last.
it’s been a while since i made any sort of printable. maybe last valentine’s day? anyway, the other day i stumbled across this video on youtube of darren criss (yes, i watch glee and love every minute of it). the part of the video where he mentions the song lyric form ‘at last’ – my heart was wrapped in clover – stood out to me.
i’ve always sang those lyrics but never understood what i was singing. this happens to me a lot. so i did a little google search to uncover the meaning of ‘in clover’. it turns out its a term of endearment. it means that the person was absolutely smitten. aww. beautiful, right?
so, wit that, i was inspired to make this little print. great for all year long, but kind of perfect for valentines day.
here is the link to a free PDF copy of the print. once you download it, just print it from your computer printer like i did. once it’s framed, no one will ever know! it’s our little secret.
i did add a little ‘created by’ text. my guess is that it may not even show up when you print it since it’s so close to the bottom. but if it does, once you frame it in an 8×10 frame, it won’t show. promise.
what do you think? love it? hate it?
either way, enjoy it!
*updated 1/20/11 – RIP Etta James, your music will live on forever in my heart, wrapped up in clover.
