love hearts keep creeping in...a collection of love hearts, part 1


Lovehearts Keep Creeping in ...
 A Collection of Lovehearts Part 1 

And so... the collector in me, keeps being drawn to this shape, this universal shape of love.I find them all over the place.On walls,on the ground,in signs,in food,in jewellery,plates, flowers.They are everywhere.And I paint them and draw them and collage them, and sew them.Any colour, any size.

So, here you go...a little gallery of love hearts I have collected from my albums..and yep,I have called it part 1...because I am certain of others to follow! 

Enjoy the love xxx
