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 – these little hearts are cute, just the thing for having round and about in the garden.
Happy Valentines Day
The little grout hearts look like little sugar cookies…..mmmmmm now I’m hungry. Love the Rose Valentine!
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.
