~VINTAGE PINK HEARTS and Hand Painted Cottage Roses~


I've never been one to make resolutions when a new year arrives, but this year I did PROMISE MYSELF (is that a resolution?) to complete the gazillion half-finished projects languishing in my studio. For several years now I've loved painting up these charming old Heart Kitchen Molds!

How Sweet It Is

But~ I get easily sidetracked doing other things if I'm not careful. Since the Hearts were already base painted with my favorite sugary pink paint, I opted to finish all I have over the weekend. I don't plan on purchasing any more of these sweet aging beauties... They are getting really difficult to find~ Besides, vintage kitchen trinkets and treasures just seem to just fly off those estate sale shelves faster than I can grab them up!


With Valentine's Day just a few weeks ago I thought this would be the perfect time offer them up for your enjoyment. I 've listed a few on eBay and later today I plan on listing a few on Etsy as well. Each Heart hangs from silky rayon ribbon and comes graced with a single hand painted rose on the front and a little pink rosebud on the inside!

The Heart is individually wrapped in a cello bag and is tied up with a frothy pink ribbon. Tied onto the side is a charming little To:/From: Hang Tag. Don't you love the sugaring on the outside? It's real German Glass Glitter...LOVE IT!

~Gotta Love The HANG TAG~


I just love all the sugary pink sweetness, don't you?

Blessings to you as you share special little keepsakes with those you love...Rebecca

Hi Rebecca ~ Those hearts are the most beautiful things - simply exquisite!! You are amazing! Everything you make is touched with great beauty.

I also adore the fabulous mirror you beautified on your last post. It was already dreamy and then with your touch, it became just divine...(deep sighs).

I think you are definitely remaining true to your calling. Bless you....

Rebecca, sweet friend ~ They are breathtaking, as all your work is. Sweet aromatic fragrant scents of imagination take one drifting off to another world, just viewing your creations.

Love you, Marydon
