Hearts in my House....

Bottle cap heart mirror...

This is a hand painted
wooden house blessing
that I made for our
family years ago. I hang it over the fireplace.

Thomas Mann makes wonderful jewelry and sculptures and does very cool things with hearts.
Mostly fabric hearts...
In honor of Valentine's Day I thought I would photograph some of the hearts that find themselves around my house. Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE hearts. Maybe because my birthday is in February or maybe because I loved making valentines when I was growing up or maybe because my mother collected antique valentines...who knows? But they seem to find themselves in my art quite often....could be because I LOVE to make stuff....and I try to put THAT into what ever I am working on...
