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
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…..it 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,
