Hearts' Delight!
My beachfront workroom is bursting with hearts! I make my popular sachet hearts year round but this time of year is special! Everone loves a heart on Valentine's Day.

I have "Cuties" ~

& are they ever CUTE! Made with new fabric that has images of vintage kiddy Valentines....
and vintage buttons or Cracker Jacks charms.

Romantic crazy quilt "Key to my Heart":
...featuring antique textiles and charmimg old skeleton keys.

Luscious, sophisticated Grey wool and silk, very ooh la la Paris boudoir! Very special buttons on this group!
and of course lots and lots of fun red & pink & white
 primitive quilt scrap hearts.

And more to come!

The new white group should be stunning! What do you think?
Happy Valentine's Day!

with love from~

  6. Just found your blog via the FrenchGardenHouse...how adorable are all your hearts!!

  7. Oh, I have never been here, but I am so glad that Tardevil told me about those precious "vintage card" hearts. I ran over to your Etsy and ordered the last one before I even left you a comment. My husband has allergies, and I can't use scented products. So glad these weren't scented. I'll be back to visit often. laurie
