Hello Lovely Hearts & Valentine Vibes

I may have been criticized for posting that Valentine’s inspo the other day, but give yer girl a break – such is the nature of the blogging beast in 2020. No, I’m not doing my part to send you into panic mode over the next retail event. I honor your right to boycott Love Day in February in favor of embracing it everyday. But I do love hearts any month of the year so let’s relax and agree heart motifs are evergreen and are simply what folks are searching for online right now. Lovely heart finds, sweet sentiments, and a few sweet prospects to tempt the tastebuds are ahead in a round-up with Hello Lovely Hearts & Valentine Vibes.

This heart arrived a few weeks back, and it’s just perfect for French country interiors, Christmastime, or as a gift for folks who love Milagros and religious decor…I am going to thread a ribbon through mine and hang it from an armoire or wall sconce.

A Love Poem by W.H. Auden

The More Loving One

How should we like it were stars to burn

With a passion for us we could not return?

If equal affection cannot be,

Let the more loving one be me.


Peace to you right where you are.

    What a pleasant surprise to have my heart rag wreath included in this lovely round up of hearts! I also adore heart decor and collectibles and use them in my home year-round.

    Thank you for sharing at TFT and for sharing my wreath!

    Michele, I seriously cannot decide what I like best in your post!! I love the spoons, the wings are swoon-worthy! I am so jealous that you already ordered those gorgeous lockets! So much beauty and inspiration. You share so much love on the pages of your blog, it is palpable. I am so grateful to have found you and that you come over to my little log and share your beautiful posts and lovely comments is a super icing on the cake! I’m featuring your post this week at the Thursday Favorite Things party and so pleased to be doing so.
    Blessings to you, sweet soul.

      *Smiling here* Yours is the sweet soul, Theresa – I feel as though I know you since we have corresponded through the seasons and shared glimpses of our hearts and homes. I do love the little heart lockets for their timeless design and for how they won’t fall from favor and even look old! The heart spoons are something I hadn’t seen before and are a perfect example of living with functional objects that lift your spirits each time the drawer is opened. Thanks for the feature, and I’ll see you over at TFT where I always find smiles. Peace to you, friend.
