Christmas Hearts

Red hot hearts! Candy cane hearts!

All scented of Cape Cod Yuletide or Christmas Eve....wonderfully evocative scents from Atlantic Spice Company's assortment of potpourri oils.http://www.atlanticspice.com/

This batch of holiday hearts was created using various antique and vintage scraps of quilts and tablecloths, al recyclecled, repurposed.

And made useful and beautiful and desirable once more.

Wonderful in an old wooden bowl.
 Or on a special plate, some holly tucked in...

Or on a feather tree. Tie one to a special gift box or stuff in someone's Christmas stocking's toe. Tie them on wreath, hang them from your cupboard doorknobs, the uses anre endless and when the holidays are done, you can use them in your winter woolens drawers or in the toes of your snow boots.
