Beautiful Hearts

Well, I thought I would like to join in "Kelli's Show and Tell Friday, so here goes!

Years ago I collected everything heart-shaped. As some of you collectors out there know, sometimes collections can become overwhelming--especially if you move a lot, like I did as a military wife. So eventually I stopped collecting and started weeding out some of the ones for which I didn't have a deep attachment. I ended up with a more manageable, but much-loved collection. I thought I would show you some of the heart boxes that I kept. These three are crystal. I love the way they reflect the light and they feel so nice to hold--very heavy and smooth. And I do use them to hold nuts, candy, dried flowers, or cosmetic items. I think it's wonderful when something useful can also be beautiful!

  4. Hi Denise!! I didn't do show and tell today, but usually do. I am very partial to hearts, too...mainly because my Mom was. They always make me think of her! Your collection is lovely!
    My fave is the upper right one. I go for the more unusual stuff as a rule.

    Have a Happy Valentine's day and a glorious weekend!!!

  5. Your collection of hearts is beautiful. I love the middle one, love the flowers on the top. Great post, thanks!

  6. Very sweet and pretty...

    Happy Valentine's Day,

  7. Welcome to show and tell! Such a pretty collection of hearts!

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I ready your Jan. 18th post about your adoption--what an amazing story! Praise God that his mom didn't take the abortion money, and that he was placed in your family!
    Hope you are having a great day~
