Heart-spotting Contest Entry

Thanks to Caitlin M. (Blue Dot Jewelry) for this heart full of sweetness:

For our wedding favors, we assembled little jars of wildflower honey (from Portland) and tiny corked vials of wildflower seeds. Honey and seeds — a symbolic circle of life! My dearest was in charge of filling the little vials and corking them up. I came home from work to find the following scene on the table. Definitely a keeper, this one.

In the Hawaiian language, “Ho’i Hou Ke Aloha” means “Let us fall in love all over again.” Seeing the beautiful photos Caitlin M. posted on her blog (Blue Dot Jewelry) made me fall in love with Kaua’i all over again!

Caitlin sent me this fabulous photo from her trip:

When I saw this papaya tree in Koloa, Kauai (Hawaii) last week, I thought of your blog. Hearts up and down the trunk!

Beyoncé says “If you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it.”

I say “If a beautiful woman gives you the finger…put a ring on it.”

Here’s a sparkling heart-shaped gem from Sarah L:

Who could resist some heart-shaped ‘ring bling’? I couldn’t.

A friend sent me a link to Dan Matutina’s “Versus / Hearts” (twistedfork.me) – a cool collection of hearts formed from pairs of famous rivals…Darth Vader and Obi Wan, Mario and Bowser, Batman and the Joker, Angry Birds and their egg-pilfering porcine nemeses…

Says Dan, “Versus/Hearts is about rivals. Rivals hate each other, but deep inside they know they couldn’t exist without the other.”

A few of my faves follow. To see the full collection, I encourage you to click through to Dan’s website.
