hearts collage

Time to share some of the pretties that have been catching my eye… and where better to start than with the timeless heart?

Above, clockwise from upper right:

  • 3500 pounds of sculptured stainless steel, “Hanging Heart” by Jeff Koons fetched $23.6 million at its Sotheby’s auction. [via Dailbe Beads]
  • The cheery yellow Folk Art Heart Love Scripture Painting is acrylic on 12″ x 12″ gallery-wrapped canvas, by Laura Brittain (whose birthday is this week, so her Etsy profile tells us — Happy birthday, Laura!)
  • Tejae Floyde’s fun charms have stolen my heart — this trio is just a small sample of her wonderfully whimsical pieces, and I think you’ll be seeing a lot more of her work: “Heartfully crafted, Artfully yours”… (Forget everything you think you knew about polymer clay, by the way, and check out Tejae and others at the Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy!)
  • Single-use petal soaps in the shape of hearts come from the sister team of Twin Dream Creations. I love the sophisticated arid-green of “Green with Envy,” but the more traditional rosy-pink heart soaps are also available. Perfect for guests or bridal, the soaps can be scented with your choice of fragrance or essential oils.
  • Finally, a coffee-lover’s dream of an accessory to enhance the java ritual — this pewter coffee scoop, decorated with an ornate heart design, is found at Modern Artisans.

My thanks to HeartaDay: It was her own fascinating version of the popular “daily painting” project started me off on a hunt for lovely hearts.

    Tejae, your Etsy store draws me like a magnet… I’ve never worked in polymer clay, but you make me want to try it!

    Thank you for mentioning my heart charms and the PCAGOE group. Yes, I agree, the Hanging Heart is GORGEOUS!

    Not only (ahem) pricey, but I believe the Hanging Heart is 9 feet tall — could be a decorating challenge! But I can think of dozens of places to use your soaps, Twins… :)

  6. Thank you for featuring our single use heart soaps! Your grouping of “hearts” is striking! Now if only I could afford that Hanging Heart!!!!!
