Heart on Laddle Pinkeep

A beautiful addition to any home. Beautiful "hearts" are always great to have around. This just makes me think of kindness, warmth and love when I look at at. Maybe I need that after a week on no sleep and chaos. But then everyone could use more serenity in their lives.

This pin keep is presented by OldeAnnieArts at Artfire.

About the pinkeep:
This is a unique one of a kind pin keep. I took an old flat-bowl ladle and added Spanish moss and a wispy cream pip berry wreath. The wreath also has rusty stars attached to it. Atop the wreath I have attached a stuffed heart made from a burgundy/pink print cotton fabric. Attached to the heart are two rusty safety pins, three rusty T-pins and two buttons. On the wood handle I have tied a raggedy stained cheesecloth bow. The piece hangs nicely by a rusty wire star loop or can prop nicely on a shelf or cupboard. Measures 7 inches wide by 11 inches tall.
