Happy Hearts Everyone...
February seems to be a month of Hearts. I love Hearts all year long however this month they are especially near and dear. I had this lovely chocolate colored heart fabric in my stash and there wasn't much left so I used it for a kitchen towel band. Jenny of elefantz has a wonderful tutorial that gave me this inspiration. Thank you Jenny! Just click on her link and you will be embellishing a towel today.
Here is a close up of the pretty band of hearts on the towel.
I received the very best mail this week. Robbie of Robbie's Paw Prints creates the most beautiful fabric postcards and I was very fortunate to receive one. Thank you Robbie. I LOVE it! When you click on her link you will see the detailed process she goes to in order to create them.
Even the "backside" is a work of art. The mail seems to shred and lose simple ATCs I mail with extra "hand cancel" postage inside of sealed cards but somehow this arrived safe and in perfect condition of which I am very grateful.
Here you can see the details Robbie puts into her creations. Hand dyed fabrics, quilted Hearts and French Knots!!! Even the French Knots are in perfect order. I am amazed as my French Knots don't even make it from my needle to my cloth without ruining. I think I need lessons from you Robbie.
So in honor of Valentine Day I have displayed lots of ATC's received through the years along my hutch as it has a built in tiny little rail that holds them perfectly.
And on the dining room table next to the hutch I have displayed a few of my Heart themed goodies. I try to keep my display small and away from Mr. C as he seems to be "allergic" to holidays. There cannot be any other explanation than him being allergic...who doesn't love Hearts and Chocolate and Love?!! I know for a fact he will enjoy his card and See's Butter Cream Heart from me tomorrow.
Lots of Love and Hearts and all that makes you Happy as we celebrate Valentine's here in the USA.
Spring is truly here and glorious Sunshine and Blue Skies. Daffodils are blooming and trees are showing gorgeous blossoms of whites and pinks. Of course it is too early for Spring so we are wondering when and if Winter will arrive. We still need tons of snow and rain to help our drought. I pray for warmth and safety for all who are in the throes of Winter and too much snow. The news across the East and Midwest shows just how bad the weather is for some of you. I think the new normal is nothing like we are familiar with. Prayers and Safe Keeping My Friends...
Do you know if you have "word verification" required on your blog comments? At some point Blogger automatically attached it to our blogs and it is certainly annoying. I don't mind typing "word salad" (dating myself with Boston Legal and James Spader) once but sometimes it takes two and three times of trying to guess what letters, numbers and now photos (yes, select the soups or pizzas or whatever they want) are correct. If word verification is attached to my blog...again...please tell me so I can somehow disengage it. There just cannot be that many "robots" trying to leave us wonderful comments. Spam still gets through! Creative Blissful Hearts...
