Many hearts…

CC License View

I was thinking about Valentines day and how it comes from some long

forgotten tradition created so many moons ago.

When I think about it, all holidays are.

But, that is ok with me.

I think it is lovely to remember those

we love. Nothing wrong with that.

I was also thinking about my adventure in this creative

path and many of the pieces I have made have hearts in

them or the heart is the focus of the piece.

So, I thought I would share a few…

    Remember the little hearts we used to stitch out of Laura Ashley fabric? we filled them with perfume soaked cotton balls and put a safety pin on the back. (:

      I am happy to “see” you stop by. I miss you when you are not around C:
      and thank you for your kind words…Happy Valentines day to you too! <3

  5. The heart images were a wonderful seeds of love. I liked seeing them all. Love the tea set reminds me of the magazine Victoria. Lovely.

    Great idea with the hearts and Laura Ashley fabrics. How beautiful.

    • ancientcloth says:

      I loved that magazine Victoria, especially when it first came out.
      Beautiful images. I love my little teapot C:
      I had forgotten about making those little hearts with
      Laura Ashely fabric but, those fabrics were the beginning
      of my “love affair” with fabric!

  6. Your hearts are just like you : beautiful ! Remember these words in “The Little Prince” by A. de St-Exupéry: “The essential is invisible to the eyes, you only see well with the heart”. And you know how to do this :) Happy belated Valentine Day !

    • ancientcloth says:

      Happy belated Valentines to you too!
      I am learning…on a pilgrimage to see with the heart : )
      <3 Thank you so much…The Little Prince is a lovely book.
