A Few Hearts, A Few Flowers and Suddenly – Happy Valentines Day!


garden-hearts

Anytime that I’ve grouted a mosiac and had a bit of grout left over, I’d just shape it up into a heart and let it set. Somehow I’ve gotten quite a little collection of cement hearts to put in the garden. In summer they’re often lost in the strawberries and the flowers.

Then of course, being Valentines day, we need a few flowers too. These lovely Bergenias blooming this week in our front garden fill the bill.

Quite a while ago, I took one of those little cement hearts and pasted it down to a little board. Then I had some fun creating a Rosie Valentine with a few broken dishes.

if you’d like even more hearts and valentines today, have a look at an old post of mine about my collection of heart boxes, “A clutter of hearts”, that I posted last July.

Happy Valentines Day!

    Helen, you have something here (again, but no surprise). The rosy valentine is sweet, I bet it would go over well for someone’s special someone and make you a few sweet shekels on the side.

    Actually, I gave the Heart mosaic to my wonderful daughter-in-law who is also a pretty talented with mosaics. One of these days I really should create a new one heart mosaic for myself.
