just a couple more

I've had so many posts to share for Valentine's Day... I mean ones that I never got to! I've jotted them down and will save them for all us for next year. Here are a couple of hearts I haven't shown you yet. I took the leftover brown paper that we had painted our banner on and cut out hearts. I left a basket of different heart cards and assorted supplies out for making any time someone felt inspired:



...and cut some into frames:


...made lots of cards with pages from an old dictionary for shop customers/friends...

and baked the heart biscuits with currants for nursery school this morning (in the top phot0).

But these next ones are my favorites... and I don't want to stop making them just because Valentine's Day will be over tomorrow night.

LOVE LETTER PILLOWS

They are made out of linen with a felted heart pocket on one side. It's just the right size for slipping in a little love note, a treat... I was even thinking a little tooth! They're each stuffed with eco-fill for soft cuddling and several huge scoops of dried lavender for sweet dreams. The reverse side has the owner's initial stenciled on: a love letter!


We made these for friends, but everyone in my family seems to want one for themself, now!

  13. Lucky, lucky friends indeed ( wink, wink)
    I love those so very much Maya. I love lavender and have it tucked into drawers, under pillows and especially all around my supply storage area ( natural moth repellant and I have soooo much wool ). When my youngest daughter was on exchange in France the family she lived with lived in the center of a meadow covered with lavender.
