Heart-spotting Contest Entry

‘Tis always the season for heart-spotting, though as Ingrid L. will attest, heart shapes become a tad more ubiquitous during the lead-up to December 25:

My daughters and I made a trip down the Rubaiyat Gallery yesterday to catch a glimpse of their holiday magic. And magic is was! The store shone with beautiful white Christmas trees adorned with fabulous colorful ornaments. Just walking through the store put a smile on our faces. But it was the glass hearts that caught my attention, especially the ones tucked away in a slightly open drawer. As you can see, they are lovely.
