February! the time of hearts and romance...

Hi! Hard to believe it is already February... I can't imagine what the Groundhog will think when he pops out later today and feels the soft warm west winds blowing, feels the sunshine on his little furry face! I think he'll throw on his boardshorts and head to the beach!
I know I did. I played hooky, spring fever ran rampant in the 65* sunshine. But I did finish a bunch of somewhat Valentine tardy hearts to share with you....

All kinds!
Sand fencing wire and beachcombed key....all deliciously rusty and tarnished form winters out on the beach!


Big prim red hearts!

Some with removable mottoes...

Stripey French ticking hears...

Small quilt hearts...plain, very plain...

...and  some with my"cutie" mottoes, this year's batch has paper mottoes inspired by sweetie hearts and fortune cookie!

More cuties..all different pink quilt bits!

A sting of tiny hearts...

to tie on something or snip apart and give to your girlfriends....

these are made with my best bubblegum pink quilt scraps, adorned with vintage buttons...

Then I did fancy hearts, with antique real velvet [silk?]: one red, one 'ashes of roses'...both with gorgeous old paste brooches...


another in palest sage velveteen...with a paste and marquisette bird pin...


And found object: keys/crystals/ and hearts jewelry...

Here's just a sample...I loved this teeny tiny key! Like for a Victorian dolly's roller skates! [watch key?]..strung with a vinatge silver metal heart on a tarnished silver chain.


These will be on my etsy and or eBay sites, I hope by late tonight...but if anyone  sees a treasure they'd like, email me or leave me a comment here. No shipping charges for bloggy friends, remember.
PS None of these hearts is scented but on\\if requested I will add essential oil, very delicate and natural, in red hot cinnamon, bergamot, or lavender. And any can be ordered with 100% natural Cape Cod lavender buds.

Have a great week!



gone to the beach.....

Jupiter again,
