Or just eat your heart – period – with this nifty jelly mould that I spotted yesterday at Livingstone & Cavell in Calgary. Fun!

As we close the books on 2012 and ready ourselves for another year to come, the simple words in this timely submission from Darren L. are well worth bearing in mind:

Learn from yesterday. Live for today. Hope for tomorrow.

With heartfelt wishes for a joyful, heart-full 2013,

Stephen

Heart-spotting Contest Entry

My niece Janine and her partner posted this photo from Kafka’s Coffee & Tea in Vancouver, where they took a moment to snuggle and write in their journals while enjoying their vanilla lattes.

Yikes! As I was making the draw* for November’s Heart-spotting Contest winner, it occurred to me that I fully forgot about the draw for October. So, I have two winners to congratulate today…

With four entries in October alone, Sylvia W. (now a two-time winner) affirms the fact that the more obsessive the heart-spotter, the greater her chances of winning. Her winning entry, titled “Dogs Need Love Too”, was drawn from among the 12 entries published in October.

Tony B.‘s “Cidery Hearts” was drawn from the 12 great submissions published in November.

The winning entries are posted below…

OCTOBER 2012’s HEART-SPOTTING CONTEST WINNER
“Our rescue greyhounds were gifted these delectable treats, and we were rather surprised to see they were made with love. Real love. In the shape of wheat-free, no-extra-preservatives-added hearts.” – Sylvia W.

NOVEMBER 2012’s HEART-SPOTTING CONTEST ENTRY
There are hearts galore in this submission from Tony B. (look closely at the outer edges of the painting). He spotted this Portuguese pottery style painting in Vancouver Island’s Merridale Estate Cidery.

Get in on the Heart-spotting Fun…and Win!

Once again, I invite readers to submit photos and ideas from your own heart-shaped worlds. There’s a new Heart-spotting Contest every month, with a fun heart-shaped prize up for grabs.

Entering is easy. To the email address on the Care to Share? page, send me photos of the heart-shaped surprises that catch your eye. The prize for December…one more framed heart print by pop artist Romero Britto (featured in my July 9 post). The prize winner will be determined by a random draw from all the month’s entries.

Love is all around you. Open your eyes!

Just before he ate the entire batch, Tony B. snapped a photo of these heart-shaped organic butter cookies from True Grain Bread – an artisan bakery in Cowichan Bay Village on Vancouver Island.

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).
