Alphabe-Thursday "H", "H as in heart(s)"

Jenny Matlock

This week, the letter for Mrs. Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday is "H". My H-word is heart(s).

I have already shown a pair of earrings for Valentine's Day that are made of hearts:

There are so many good H-words. I almost chose "horse", but I could not get the pictures I needed to do it. Another word is "hand", because hands do the work in all "handwork", "handmade" and crafts. "Hand and heart" are symbols for the loving care that a craftsman (or -woman) puts into his or her work.
"Heart" as become a new-fangled synonym for "liking" something. On Etsy, you can "heart" a shop or an item, and that means that it is your favourite, that you like it.
"Hearts" to all who visit me today!
Happy Alphabe-Thursday!
Anna

I "heart" this post and all things handmade. Hand-craftsmanship cannot be compared with. Your heart beads are lovely and I'm sure will turn in to amazing things.

I love, love all the different sizes of hearts. It reminds me that everyone has one, just some people use their hearts big and some small.

Hearts are beautiful, Anna, and, for me, symbolize love and the people that express it. Being crafty and creative are ways that people show their love - and you do it so well.
