...some of the little everyday things
which
tug with all their might at tender heartstrings.

and
making music with them."

Oh God! I have started looking forward to your heart designs each day! I love the colors that you imagine, and the intricate details in your hearts!! This one, again, is a beauty!

I love this one best of all!

Hearts are so cheezy in design - thank you so much for letting me see them differently!

These are all so fantastic!

They look like musical notes/hearts. Lovely, beautiful.

I agree Gypsy - I saw musical notes joining the two hearts together. Its so beautiful to see the strong warm colours you use Margaret instead of mishy mashy pale pinks one often associates with commercial hearts for sale.

All your hearts are so unique and delicately crafted. I wish I had one-tenth of your design element expertise!
