Bless Your Heart!

From my perspective
Valentine's Day is the day the world celebrates 
a holiday of LOVE (without going into the history)!

 It can be romantic love, love of friends, love of the disadvantaged and under privileged, love of saints
 or love of self - you just name it!

For me also it is about the love of creating hearts - all sorts!

The ones above are not new but I still love them!
And then there are button hearts
for the button lovers
like the one below!

A more recent heart I have created is this black velvet heart
on which I could display a few of some favorite
rhinestones etc. in my studio.

It's precious to me because I created it with some laces
and gifts

and other bits and bobs from dear blogging friends.

This is just another little way I can celebrate the love
of Valentine's Day.
Creating hearts is also a way we can say "thank you"
to show our gratitude to friends for acts of kindness
such as this one

which I created for Marie at Lost Bird Studio

This heart also includes some lacey embellishments

I received from Marie herself and Lynn of

(she's a bit lost in lace but I don't think she would mind


Wishing you much joy in expressing Valentine's Love
in whatever is meaningful to you.
