Hearts and Treasures


Anything with  hearts
has always been
very special to me.


 I don't decorate a lot 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 Sweet Guy who always holds my heart!
However you spend this Valentine weekend~
fill it with love.
Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day
Hugs,
Celestina Marie

Conniecrafter said...

A beautiful collection of hearts, I can imagine the most special are those made from your loved ones. I have a few projects that I display that my mom made after having her strokes, they are not the best work she had done but it shows how much she loved doing it and wanted to keep creating until she just couldn't anymore. It is wonderful all the great memories that come from objects our loved ones gave us or we inherited after their passing.
Wishing you a Happy Valentine's day.

Linda Walker said...

Hi Celestina,
I don't decorate specifically for Valentine's Day either unless I am expecting kids to come home or other company. But like you, I have a house full of hearts tucked here and there! You have quite an extensive, lovely collection of hearts and mementos decorating your home. I especially love the one your mom stitched. The handmade items that my mom has made me over the years are so dear to me and I know you feel the same about yours.

Loved seeing your beautiful collection of hearts! Happy Valentine's Day Celeste!

So many beautiful hearts in your home! I love the pincushion your grandmother crocheted and I've collected several of them myself.

Looks like you gals had a nice time at your Texas blogger get-together!

I have the same angel holding the heart, Celestina. The heart pin is lovely, and your grandma's crocheted heart is a treasure. Those pink roses are beautiful. They're such a soft pretty color.
