Related to Hearts


Anything with  hearts
has always been
very special to me.


 I don't really decorate for Valentine's Day,
 because I enjoy hearts year round
among my treasures.
Vintage or new,
hearts are timeless.
Hands to work


Hearts to God

Keepsake treasures
fill the heart.
Forever Friends
Stitched by my mother,
near the end of her life.
Life is sweet,
enjoy a treat!
Love and Roses
Heart and Home
Grandma crocheted hearts
as she sang in Italian.
I can still hear her voice.
Lovely heart pin cushion
created by grandma's hands and heart
so many years ago.
Tokens of love
here and there.
My Best Guy,
always holds my heart!
However you spend this day,
fill it with love.
Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day
Hugs,
Celestina Marie

Dear Celeste..... I love the way you threaded this heartfelt post! I especially love your painted hearts with roses. Sooooooo beautiful! We don't celebrate Valentine's day the way you do I think. We do know about it but here it's only meant for secret lovers as far as I know. There is a huge commercial thing about Valentine's day though and they act as if it's for everyone LOL. I'm always a bit confused about it :w Anyway......... I hope your Valentine's Day was good!
My dear husband made me a cappuccino, haha.

hugs
Ingeborg
