Sorry..more hearts.

Apologies.
Its more hearts.
But you must admit, blue is new. (Jenny?)


But just a minute..

One of them looks a bit strange...
Its in 2 halves.



Here's the back.

Is it a totally stupid idea?
The 'Broken token' (there's a lot of reading in that link)Just think 'Half a sixpence' (HG Wells 'Kipps')
Do you think anyone will want to own two half hearts? One for themselves and one for their other half.
Here they are on a white background.
The Lady in Wales? She say 'yes'!
(see previous post)
An interesting fact: I have sent goods all over the world.
Australia, Hawaii. Nevada, Florida, California, Spain, Greece, France.
And they all got there safe and sound. Well , apart from Canada..but I wrote down the address wrong and it did come all the way back.
I sent one parcel to Manchester..about 25 miles away from here.
It didn't get there.
OOHH! I'm watching the news and Barack Obama is on...its so exciting.
I can't wait for the inauguration...and the puppy.

I don't see why not ( 2 halves of a heart). Mind you, now it's in 2 halves it reminds me of something else, but that's probably just me. (It's ok, it's not rude!)

Love the broken heart idea, gives all kinds of possibilities for the wearer
this would work great on all kinds of shapes, imagine tiny triptychs,
oh my mind is going on overdrive

What a fabulous colour! I am always astonished by how many variations you create on a theme. Each one looks amazing and so desirable.

Mary said...

(I'm very excited that Obama is soon going to be sworn in, too!!! My eldest daughter is on her way to Washington, DC today. She and a group of friends are getting to attend one of the major pre-inaugural balls on Monday night! Lucky girl!)

The hearts are beautiful. I too have sent parcels overseas that have all reached the destination and the one I sent to a village about 8 miles away was lost!

I'm crazy for this shade of blue!! And like you, I cannot wait for President Obama!!!

Kitty said...

They are stunning.

How annoying about the post - I waited over a month for a parcel recently. It only got here because my postman rescued it from the Sorting Office for me when he saw it sat there.

Tuesday is going to be SO exciting.

liz said...

And, though, that half a sixpence
Can only mean half a romance
Remember that half a romance
Is better than none
I used to love Tommy Steele is he still alive?

I love your hearts, and half hearts:)
Liz
