giveaway: heart strings

happy february. i love love month. so here we go with a suitably sweet giveaway.

madeleine creates everything in her shop by hand. these charming heart garlands caught my eye. she stitches various hearts together to create beautiful chains, pretty perfect for valentine's day and any other day of the year. i think it would make any sweetheart happy.

she is offering one m.writes reader their choice of heart garland. (the three options include: vintage book, antique music or red fabric.) if you'd like to enter to win, leave me a comment on this post by thursday, february 5th. i'll announce the winner on friday, february 6th.





thank you to the academy of gentle arts shop for sweetening our spaces with these gorgeous garlands.

don't miss: another cute etsy shop giveaway over at petit elefant.

Our community has the most heaviest of hearts this week. I've been sitting here all morning thinking about what to say, or not say, to do or not do, to post or not post but I must. I am putting together a valentine package for a long time friend who lost her husband last week- he was 43 years old and the healthiest, most devoted husband, and adoring father not to mention the love of her life. This valentine's day will not be the same- nor will life.But with the support of our community, she will mend. In the meantime, I keep searching for a heart (full) of goodies to make thier day. Just a reminder to LOVE ONE ANOTHER. XOXO
