Happy Valentine's Day

Playing around cleaning my home and rearranging things, thought I would add some more little treasures to my blog. About 10 years ago a friend and I found this cute craft project in a Martha Stewart Magazine. These little wax paper hearts look so delicate but they have lasted 10 years and they still look just as beautiful as the day we made them. My friend is no longer with us, but I think of her when I pull out these soft pretty hearts every February. They have a way of catching the light on a long gray overcast day and bringing in some warmth. I have about 25 of them hung around and they make me smile :)
I went to Martha's website and found that the instructions are still up!!!
If you want to make some for yourself, get the instructions here: Crayon Hearts (Martha Stewart) 

A few other goodies to share. This month I got these absolutely sweet Glitter Needle Felted Wool Acorns from an etsy crafter called True Luxe
In the photo you can see a little bit of my husbands dunes watercolor painting, it was in a local juried show last year and I love it so much. 
I am excited to frame my Little Chickadee print by Allison Trentelman, her etsy store is called Rocky Top Studio. I like the way she captures
the wonders and beauty of nature in her artwork.
