Hearts, no flowers…

Am feeling optimistic…after getting text and the photos!!! actually posted yesterday…all on my own. (Though, I have to confess, how it all came about is still a bit of a mystery.) But in honor of the day, I am trying again. Nothing like success to spur one on to another challenge.

These are part of a set of ornaments made to give to my family. I have been doing this for more than twenty years. They are out on my table because sooner or later I will master the technical complexity of my new camera and then, I will assemble a portfolio of my work which actually looks like the real thing. (Ever hopeful.)

Each summer as I cruise the aisles at the flea market I look for something to inspire that year’s ornament. For these, named Party Hearts, the find was the vintage beaded shoe bows! They are a bit quirky, but always make me smile. Happy Valentine’s Day.

Party Hearts, Christmas 2005

  1. Have been looking at your silk tie workshop (on Normas blog) and it looked great fun. Love your little valentine hearts, they are beautiful!

    1. I think I have tried to reply twice…maybe the third time will be the charm! Am very new at this, and don’t always get it right the first time…thanks for looking
