Have a heart...

I don't know about you - but I am amazed when I "shop"
my house - what I can find!  I started on a little hunt around
the house for hearts for Valentine's Day....I find I have
quite a few!

I found this great wire heart-shaped basket that I got at
a thrift store some time ago and had intended to paint. 

I also found this turquoise heart - it normally sits in a little wire
basket in my ensuite bathroom. 

And then there's this little wire cage heart that opens up - this
one I did intend to paint and still will but in the meantime
isn't it cute?


I was inspired by all of YOU  to make some of my own
rustic hearts.....(while watching "The Voice" the
other night)



And finally - when all else fails and you want to do something
for a little occasion like Valentine's Day - hit the dollar stores!

These cute little clothes pegs were a dollar a package!

I am pretty sure this weekend will see me digging out more
from around the house because....

You gotta have heart!
