1st February 2017 - Heartathon

Hawthorn has invited me to join her in posting a heart a day until Valentine’s Day on the 14 February.  As the weather is so lousy at the moment I have set myself a challenge of finding all the hearts in and around our home.  Some of you who have been following Hawthorn for a while may recognise some of my hearts as she has used a few of mine over the years.  As I have been looking round our home I was surprised how many I could find especially as I am not one for collecting hearts.




My first heart is taken from a couple of little stickers that were on a Christmas card envelope a few years ago sent by a friend in Capetown who is sadly no longer with us.  I stuck the two little stickers on the corner of a school picture of our two grandchildren taken years ago.  I always remember our friend when I am dusting the shelves of our bookcase.

  1. I too had to resort to seeing what hearts I could find at home and it was so easy and I do not collect hearts either. A lovely story too. It is nice how something can trigger a good memory.

  3. Very cute & a lovely memento from a friend. I've just realised I'm not the only who had to resort to finding them all at home too. Like you I never thought of myself as being a heart sort of person, but I've found enough to do the fourteen & am quite pleased. Look forward to seeing all the different takes on this theme. Take care.

    1. As I mentioned to Thread's Through my life above, it is surprising how many hearts creep into our homes. I was amazed when I started looking, in fact I have too many. xx
