 "Life is short and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those
who are traveling the dark journey with us. Oh be swift to love, make haste to be
kind." (Henri Frederic Amiel, 19th century Swiss philosopher and poet)

Knowing my love my for stitched hearts and that I don't sew, out of the kindness and
generosity of HER heart, I received these beautiful hearts in the mail yesterday


Look at the detail in every one of these beauties...







I have them displayed in a wire basket on my kitchen table.


Aren't they just perfect in my home?


 I hope that everyone's hearts are filled with love today ~ whether from a friend,
a family member, a beloved pet, or even a stranger. And don't forget to spread
a little of that love around yourself.

  2. You displayed them so much cuter than I did.

    I really wasn't sure if the colors would be right, but they look cute on your table.

  9. Loving your hearts from Carol, just a pretty variety. I enjoyed making hearts for Valentines this year, and I think I'm hooked. You are so lucky to have such great blog friends.....I'm jealous (just kidding). If anything I learned this last year is that life is certainly short, so we must enjoy every moment!
