from some little GREEN buttons off a favorite shirt that I ripped. I do love reusing my favorite things (cue Julie Andrews!).
The possibilities are endless. You can adorn this little sweet heart to your choosing. Here's another idea:
Quite a nice addition to the Valentine's Altar. I will be bringing these keepsakes to a Valentine's Exchange at our Handwork Circle on Thursday, so perhaps there will be time to embelish some more? I hope you enjoy a very Happy Heart Day!
