I love hearts -- I love the lace around that one. I'm looking forward to any more you might post about.

I enjoyed the story of this collage and the background of all the different parts.


I adore going through things, organizing, sifting through its so cleansing right:)
love the heart collage


Your collage is beautiful and made even more lovely by the memory of each element.


Oooh I LOVE this Charlotte. Can't wait to see more in your series. Gorgeous!!!


How fun! Your collage has definitely stood the test of time - it's beautiful & I love the stories behind everything :)


I've loved seeing your hearts, Charlotte. I always think of you when I see handmade heart and house motifs, especially if they are hooked, or wool applique. I've been sewing sticks onto things for years. I love them, so it is fun to see that you like them too. I need to make a valentine for a swap today, and this has inspired me to get to work. Thanks!

Thanks for sharing your "heart". It IS the bits and pieces of our lives that seem to become so significant. Our lives start as little "bits" and then the stories that weave the web of our lives grows. We all have so much to share with each other. It is so fantastic to watch this blog community evolve and grow together. Thanks for your great example!
