Hearts

.
take a walk with me...
.







.

Thank Silke and Lori for this idea: how many hearts do you have? Take a look around. I think you will be surprised.
.
.
My camera and I took a walk tonight in search of hearts. All this above and below is what we came up with walking from room to room at home.












.How about this Valentine's Day we give ourselves 's? You probably won't have to look very far, not much effort, just seeing.
.
And how about we share our 's? Go on a treasure hunt for hearts and post them on your blog--kind of a Valentine's Day present to eachother?
.
Love

  13. Hi Kj,
    Weirdly enough I have been looking around my home and noticing hearts and then vaguely thinking that I will do just what you said! Also this week I have seen a chewing gum heart(stuck to the pavement-yuck but it was a heart) and a wood grain heart. I suppose hearts are bound to be on our minds at this time.
    I loved all the hearts around your home!
    Sarah :)

  15. I thought you were going to wait until Valentines Day.

    I love this challange! I've been snapping away all morning ;)

    Has anyone noticed Emily's ears in the header?? That just cracks me up!

    I like the hearts KJ and the whole idea of looking around. And I like that you didn't 'stage' anything! They are where they are, in little nooks and crannies, on tables and cards and store catalogs. Awesome post! And of course I like seeing how many of them came from yours truly ;)

    Have a love-filled Friday!

  16. Seeing as I find no conclusive proof that I in fact have a heart I will simply not try to attempt to justify one.

    On the other hand when people question my brain I can always point to the photograph I have that proves in fact that I do have gray matter in the appropriate place and of the appropriate size.

  27. Seriously? I've looked around and I have no hearts *sob* . . .well none that you can see but loads that can not be seen but are surely felt . . I will share. Nice new gaff! And Happy Valentines day to you and Ms JB . .eat lobster and chocolate for me because I'm practising restraint.

  30. Thank you, kj! I needed that heart. :) xox Pam

  31. Hmm. I read this yesterday. I picked up my camera, fully intending to find hearts. I MUST have hearts, I know I must, but so far I haven't found one. There are lots of things which spell out LOVE to me...but no hearts. How very odd.

    I'm glad you posted so many hearts, kj...at least I can look at them on your blog! In the meantime, I am going to hunt a little more for hearts which must be here...just hidden.

    Happy Valentine's Day, kj!

    marion, you shall soon have a heart nearby. meanwhile, did you check your underwear drawer? :)
