Some Gifts Are From The heART

I have a thing about hearts.

I am always looking for heart shaped stones.

I have a collection of hearts

hanging in my sunroom.


It is easy to see, when something

has been created,

from the heart.

To me “from the heart” means,

the maker took their time

and there is the

all telling

attention to detail.

You can look at an item

and see if it was thrown

together at the last minute,

or if it was loving put


I call it “heART”.


A piece of heART

arrived at my home.

Wrapped in pattern tissue paper

and tied with pink seam binding.


With a note from the maker.



The dearest hand created book

I have ever seen.


Filled with beautiful pages.

The above items Jillayne

brought home from her trip to France.

  She wrote some

outstanding posts about her trip.

  The posts were thought

provoking and I thoroughly enjoyed reading them.


The binding is just as interesting

as the pages in the book.


I once included a quote from Coco Chanel on my blog:

“When I am no longer able to create something,

I’ll be done for.”

Jillayne remembered the quote and used Coco Chanel for her inspiration.  Notice the pearl buttons, crystals, vintage sewing notions used here in the binding.

Jillayne created herself a book just like mine you can see hers here

We are thinking of doing a tandem post in

the future on our books.

I wonder what fantastic

items I can capture within the pages.



I love the tiny key she included… came from France

too!!!  Isn’t that the cutest key ever.  (I know a little

nutsy about the key, but I love it!)  I may now have to

start collecting keys!


Thank you Jillayne for the heART.

Once Jillayne has

received her box from me,

I will show you what I created for her

……yes it is heART too!


Love to all,
