Spend the Day With Those You Love


A heart is NOT the normal symbol for Thanksgiving, but I had to share this recent fleamarket acquisition. I bought it from a woman who was selling her mother's things. Her mother, who died 5 years ago, made this precious mosaic-ed heart and I had to have it, flaking tiles, missing beads and all. I thought I might repair the flaws, but now I am thinking not.
It's perfect just as it is.
Happy Thanksgiving

I think it's really pretty and lovely that it has found the right owner to treasure it.

Happy Thanksgiving! xxx

What a lovely symbol it is for the day indeed! How perfect it is AS it is, I agree with you. Will you display it in some shadow box? Hide it away in its own little cubbyhole? So much to be imagined when a heart is rescued...
