Well, it's another cold morning. Hopes of warmer weather by this afternoon and even higher temps in the 80's predicted for the coming week. Crazy weather this year huh?
Keeping with the Valentine theme today, I wanted to share a heart I made for my sweet sister Kathy a few years back OK, longer than I think...The years fly by don't they? At one point in my life I was so into making these primitive figures...I couldn't get enough...What was so cool to me is that primitive is just that primitive... didn't have to be perfect. Whatever you ended up with was what you had. Coffee stained muslin, rusty jingle bells, paint and thread...
Yes, the whitish looking things on each side are wings...Glad you asked...LOL! The bells were rusted by taking silver bells and using a recipe that If I recall needed to be done outside with Vinegar and something else...but I do remember being fascinated by this stuff foaming up when it came into contact with the metal...
Well, life did what it does best and shook things up. The heart came back to me and now hangs over my door. When I leave the house, I see the heart and it not only reminds me of my sweet sister, but also reminds me how each day needs to be Valentine's Day...Full of Love!
Thanks for coming by! Have an Awesome Love Filled Day!
