Wow--look what I got!
Cindy couldn't have made anything more personalized and perfect than the hanging hearts I received.
Here's a side-by-side of the front and back of my hanging heart (I stole the pic off Cindy's blog)
Can you believe it?
She copied five family photos of mine that I had posted here on my blog.
I only have a scanner (I WILL be buying a camera soon), but imagine five hearts strung together with pieces of lace. Cindy said, "I connected the hearts with pieces of lace making sure that they all were able to spin independently of each other so they were a bit like a mobile."
The base with a pearl 'B':
On the back side of each pink fabric heart is a collage of sheet music, buttons, and crocheted doilies.
The doilies represent Cindy's own family history, with her memories of a great aunt who often made them.
And that's not all!
She sent a doggie magnet, pink ribbon candy, a crocheted heart pin, and a necktie daisy pin!
I am overjoyed with this package.
Thank you Cindy, for being such a fantastic swap partner.
My hanging heart is going to be displayed year round.
I love it!
