HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS…

I’m a bit of a collector!  I have all all sorts of little collections of “things” most of which are inexpensive, novelties,  items I have come by, purely by chance or have been give to me by special people in my life who know me so very well indeed!

HEARTS… I just hadn’t realised how much this pleasing and special shape means to me, they are tucked, propped, pinned, hung and just “about” all over our home.  Some are really rather cute, others you might even have yourself, like my first photo…

I used this photo in my SEEING RED blog a few weeks ago, thought it fitted in on this blog too!

These were one of my sister and my favourite sweeties at little girls, they weren’t in a posh tin like this, they were in a tube packet.  Didn’t they say the most cheesiest things… “be mine”  “boyfriend”  “love you”  “cute thing”  oh golly and all the rest…!

My special little coffee mug (I have tea in a different mug, this one is reserved for coffee only!)

My favourite sister (I only have one sister so she doubles up to be my second favourite too) made this very  pretty beaded heart by threading little glass beads onto wire, twist, thread, twist, thread… and she came up with this, beautiful isn’t it?

This “string” of hearts hangs in my daughters bedroom along with…

The most heart felt room in the house  is the kitchen… here they are…

These little hand painted wooden ones hang by a little bit of string and dangle from the knob on the dresser.

A friend of mine covered a little smooth granite pebble with wool felt… quirky eh!

This necklace my husband bought for me when our daughter was born as it was called “mother and daughter hearts together”  The large mummy heart is matt gold and the little heart is matt silver, I am wearing it right now as I write this blog!

My neighbour gave me this bunch one Christmas and they hang in the back porch.
