Heart-spotting Contest Entry

It certainly seems to be Sylvia W.’s. In fact, in her obsessive quest for heart shapes, she’s even started leafing through tattered magazines in the attic:

Just when I thought I’d seen it all, I came across this little gem – a heart-shaped teacup and saucer described as a ‘cup of love’ in a tattered low-end direct mail catalog. Just in time for Christmas, perfect for grandparents everywhere (to go nicely with the petit point it’s sitting on).

Heart-spotting Contest Entry

Here’s a decoration we’ve had on our door for many years, and it was only recently that a visiting heart-spotter commented on its shape. Sometimes these things just blend into the familiar and become part of the scenery.

…as does the frosty chill of a prairie November.

As I was savoring my Americano in Bell’s Bookstore & Cafe in Calgary yesterday, the windows fogged up as the weather outside turned frightful, rendering the Christmas ornaments against the window into lovely silhouettes (many of them heart-shaped).

Hearts also await those who visit the Bell’s Bookstore water closet, where the following artwork adorns the wall.
