Home is Where the Heart is....







               So true and has more meaning once a loved one is away...sigh.   I think my husband is feeling this sweet expression of late.   I have not created a whole heck of a lot except for a few design team projects.  I had bought three of these hearts off a website and really enjoy making each one unique and different.   This one I actually painted a "custom" color...three different colors to get the color I had in my mind.  Not sure how it looks on your  moniter but it is a lovely shade of aqua green in real life.  I dug into my goodies and used up some old trims and made a linen blossom with a bit of vintage hankie.  Added some fun archectural resin pieces....I LOVE this window.  It symbolizes home to me...and of course a button here...a bow there...and so forth till it felt right to me.  I added just a smidgeon of glitter to the front of it for a bit of sugary glimmer.   Hope you enjoy it!  hugs, cherry

This is beautiful. I love altered projects. I need to find time to make some myself. I used to make a good bit before I started my blog. :)

I certainly love this! I love heart designs, so this speaks to me. Love the shabby look to it and, of course, the touch of glitter. Everything is better with glitter!

sometimes it's hard to capture the true color on monitors but I will say this is beautiful and even if it does not show as you had wanted on here, I love it never the less! It's gorgeous with the lace trim and all the glitter. Fabulous!
