Have a Heart!

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.

A few pretties around
 that seem to fit right into Valentine's Day
Vintage or new,
hearts are timeless.
Hands to work
Hearts to God

~a little painting done many years ago~

Keepsake heart box hand created by a dear friend.
Forever Friends
Stitched by my mother,
near the end of her life.
Life is sweet,
enjoy a treat!

Faux wood sugar cookies long gone to a new home~
Love and Roses
Heart and Home
My Grandma crocheted many lace hearts
as she sang in Italian.
I can still hear her voice.
Lovely heart pin cushion
created by grandma's hands 
so many years ago.
Tokens of love
here and there.
Hand Painted Conversation hearts
 inspired by the forever little heart candy
we all remember from childhood and beyond!



Postcards from France fill a sweet heart wall pocket.
This one hangs on the wall in my etsy shoppe!

She loves seeing this plate.

It reads,
"Celebrate the miracles of every day"



Thank  you for stopping by to visit~
However you decorate or spend the weekend,
 fill it with love.
Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day
Hugs,
Celestina Marie

Celestina, I love all your keepsakes from your grandmother. Like you I keep hearts around our home year round. I just think you can add them to vignettes so easily through out your home.

Ahh...you mother singing in Italian, my mother speaking in Spanish as she crocheted, sewed, pinched her rosary beads....love hurts so when it vaporizes into the next world, doesn't it dearest?

But love has overcome it all. Oh the love....

Linda M. said...

Thank you for sharing all your pretty hearts. The ones from your mother and grandmother are the very best. I do have a collection of Willow Tree angels but I do not have the one holding a heart. I'll have to add it to my wish list. Joyous Wishes, Linda

Beautiful collection of hearts! Happy Valentines Day!

How sweet, all those images that you've kept close to you.
I love the hand-worked items from you, your mother and grandmother best of all. I have a few linens with trim like those your grandmother made - pillowcases, dresser scarves - that I won't part with. Having the memory of your grandmother singing in Italian while doing handwork (a lost treasure) is such a treasure.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, Celestina Marie.

You certainly have a beautiful collection of hearts. How special the hearts are that your grandma made. I know they are very special to you and bring back wonderful memories.
Hoping that you had a wonderful Valentine's Day. I did nothing special other than left my red decorations up after Christmas.
I'm off to plant my 3 tomato plants and 10 plants of flowers to perk up my patio.
Have a wonderful week.
Hugs,
Mary

Kelly-Anne @ Beautiful Girlhood said...

Oh Celestina! Such precious memories these beautiful treasures hold! Hearts are indeed timeless and I love decorating with them year round too!
A friend of mine has a wall in her bedroom devoted to the different hearts she collects...such a delightful idea!

And thank you for your very sweet comment on my blog - what a joy to meet a fellow blogger in Christ!

May your upcoming week be filled with sunshine and smiles! Much love, Kelly-Anne

You have some beautiful heart themed pieces, Celeste. I have found hearts within pieces I have here, never realizing they were there when I bought them. I count them as my Valentine's Day décor!

Truly, a gorgeous heart collection. Thanks for sharing!!

Laurie Ritchey said...

Oh, Celeste, how sweet to see that you posted that wonderful plate for me. I do love that plate. I love all silhouettes, but I also love the message on this plate. How wonderful that you have several lovely heart treasures that were created by your Mother and Grandmother. I could envision your grandmother, singing in Italian, while stitching these beauties. Someone with a heart as big as your heart should have a heart collection.

Julie Marie said...

I love hearts too, and all of yours are so pretty... my favorite is the pin cushion created by your grandmother... xoxo... Julie Marie
