I wonder what it is about the heart shape that is so appealing?
They have always been such a favourite of mine.....I can't have too many.
Recently I broke my lovely red mug which was covered in tiny white hearts and I've been missing that big, cheerful cup. So I was very happy to spot this mug in the supermarket ( Morrisons)
It's got rows of patterned hearts and one of my favourite sentiments....Home sweet home.....Yes it really is how I feel . Our ordinary little, rather cluttered, but warm and colourful home is such a special place to me........
THIS crochet pillow has been on my long "to-do" list for ages. I love the clever switch of words and the beautifully simple finished item. I probably would have to add a bit more colour ( and maybe some hearts ) to mine though :0)
Anyway, back to the hearts. This crochet jar cover, an Emma Bridgewater tribute, I made a few years ago still makes me smile whenever I look at it's pretty felt hearts.........
It was so easy to do. Just rows of Half treble crochet ( U.K. terms ) to fit your jar. I sewed the hearts on, but glue would work too.
This week I seem to have been noticing hearts in surprising places too. Like in the reflections from the grater when I was making packed lunches on Monday evening........
They seem to me, to be some sort of good luck sign....maybe that is a bit fanciful....but nevertheless they always make me smile.
Another thing that has been surprising me and bringing many smiles to my face are the number of flowers that are still blooming in my sunny, sheltered front garden .
These picture were all taken yesterday. I've never known so much floral beauty in mid November......
Dhalias, french marigolds, Zinnias, Rudbeckias, Sedum and Japanese Anemones.
Most are coming to an end, but this red rose is still flowering profusely and I was thrilled that my camera managed to take a decent picture of it , as it usually struggles with bright red.........
Isn't it gorgeous.
The temperatures are set to plummet next week so I picked what will probably be the last bunch of home grown flowers in 2013....
What an Autumn we have have been treated to. Between the rain and wind there have been so many mild bright days, and lately, pretty morning frosts with crisp air and beautiful light. It seems 2013 will be an Autumn I'll remember as a lovely example of how special time of year can be
