Spring Equinox 2013

Happy Spring all! I hope that wherever you are, you rang in the spring equinox with sunshine and flowers pushing their stems up out of the earth. We here in Nova Scotia met spring with a blast of 15 cm of that fluffy, cold, white stuff! I spent the day in the studio, furnace turned up, wool knee socks on, working on these bright blossoms. Not the real thing, but nearly as pretty!

homemade hearts

I wanted to share this picture with you of our fridge decorated for heart day tomorrow. The large white heart in the middle was decorated by my 3 year old and proudly placed on the fridge among all these other red and pink hearts which were made for me many years ago before my son was even a thought in my head!

One year on my birthday, when I really didn't think it would be any different than any other day, I walked into work to find the door of my office COMPLETELY covered with tiny red hearts! One of my sweet co-workers took the time to make these and decorated as a birthday surprise. It was so pretty, and I just loved them so much that when it was time to take them down, I tucked them away in an envelope.

Since then we have moved twice and I found this envelope this year and pulled them out just in time for Valentine's. Taylor glued some magnets to the back of the hearts and voila! Valentine's decorations we can use again every year! He's been having fun re-arranging them and lining them up....

So to the sweetie who made these pretty little things, Happy Valentine's Day!
