brimming hearts...

Finally...here are some of the valentines I have listed in my Etsy shop today! They are clear vinyl hearts I've sewn and stuffed with my favorite magical matter...old fabric, yarn, vintage tinsel, paper, glitter, photographs, millinery flowers, and lots of bits and bobs. They all measure about 18" from ribbon to dangle-but a few are fatter than the others. Oh, and my favorite part is the dangle...I've dipped some old glass chandelier drops in beeswax for a very pretty effect! I hope you like these...they are super fun to make with all those treasured scraps you hate to waste! Xo
I'll have a few more tomorrow if my fingertips don't give out! xo

These are absolutely beatiful. I have drawers and boxes full of little things I just don't have the heart to get rid of but never knew what to do with them. Really well done.
