♥My Valentine's Hearts to You♥

"A hundred Hearts would be too few
to carry all my love for you"!
so I will share just a few
with you!

 Some of these have been created by me

others have been gifted.

 and this is a very recent one
I have created almost
entirely from
vintage laces and velvet

old cut lace linen and key

a vintage burnished silver button

a tasselled fringe of dyed mohair,  dyed scrim and old lace

decorated with some white ribbon
using double feather stitch.

But what each of these has in common is the little word
called Love
and that is what this message
comes with.

To all of you who just love creating hearts
to be used in so many different ways
go to visit Nancy at
where she is running a most inspirational
14-day tutorial on creating with


I'll be linking this post up with
Blissful White Wednesday at www.timewashed.com


Thank you so kindly for visiting
here and for your always
 inspiring comments.
I hope you will be showered with
lots of love and many 
surprises too!

Suzy ♥♥♥

  31. Hope you Valentine is good to you tday.

  32. Oh Suzy...I am loving the newest heart you have made (I love them all)It is soooo amazing and just dripping in beauty. I am so glad you shared the link to Sugar Lump Studios. I will pop over and see.

    I hope that you are having some breathing room after your time with the fires and that you can enjoy the rest of your summer my dear. Winter is still here with overnight temps in the teens F. But it warms up nicely to 30F. during the days.

    I have gotten so many things done in the house that I am astonished :) at what I have done. Tomorrow I will be back to sewing in the studio if I can unbury my machine. I have been working on a quilt and would like to finish it before winter ends. I also have some hearts that I have got to finish for some farmers markets this summer. I never did get them done in time for last year. I need winter to last just a bit longer so I can get some things finished. I am awful at working in the studio in the summer when I could be in the garden. I know you know exactly what I mean. I will let you know if any of my David Austin roses survived the winter. We had some harsh weather, but I still had to try to grow them. I hope I didn't waste all the money. But as they say, nothing ventured-nothing gained :)
    much love from me...

  33. Happy Valentine's Day Suzy~ Sending you Big Hugs!
    Marilou xoxoxo

  34. Lovely hearts, all of them but particularly you lacy ones, specially with the wonderful addition of the key & button & the lino print heart, of course ;)

  35. Oh, I'm thrilled again! On your blog, there is always so exceptionally beautiful works of art to see. The hearts are really quite delightful and charming, dear Suzi. Absolutely gorgeous!
    I wish you a nice weekend.
    Hugs MARTINA :-)

  36. Wonderful, wonderful hearts Suzy - so lovely and so inspiring to see them all together like this. You have a wonderful talent for combining lace and velvet and buttons etc. to create something stunning - always such an inspiration!
