Heart-spotting Contest Entry

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.

Heart-spotting Contest Entry

A well-travelled heart from Darren L.:

I was in a research meeting recently at the university and looked down to see this heart sitting on the table. Turns out our Polish research advisor got it from a Czech friend while she was living in Ireland, so it has been around the world.

Heart-spotting Contest Entry

From veteran heart-spotter Darren L.:

This is one of the wonderful gifts we received at a recent family celebration party. Hot plates are always handy, but this heart shape really makes it special. If you look closely, there appears to be a little red heart-shaped rock peeking out. Plus, it was handcrafted by Rock Stuff on Vancouver Island – the birthplace of this blog!

A pair of horseshoe hearts from one of our regular heart-spotters, Sylvia W.:

Horseshoes have long been considered a symbol of good luck. So quadruple the luck factor with two hearts made with two horseshoes apiece. Lovely!

On Friday evening, a prolonged lightning storm (a rare phenomenon here on Vancouver Island) lit up the skies around Victoria’s waterfront. While doing a little “storm chasing” in hopes of getting a snapshot of the electrifying spectacle, I turned down a sidestreet to escape the slow crawl behind a horse-drawn carriage and came upon these heart-shaped shutter and window box cut-outs on the front facade of the Victoria Edelweiss Club. Later in the evening, my wife managed to capture some of the atmospheric light-show (below).

It’s a red-letter day! I’m thrilled to share the very first submission from a faithful follower of my blog – my dear cousin Darren. (Blood relatives can still count as faithful followers, can’t they?)

He sent me this photo just a few minutes ago…something he spotted “in the fabric of our cushion at the Sultan’s Tent.”

The subject of his email was “Ass heart”. I honestly didn’t know what to expect…

I have a beautiful old Cramerotti with some elegant machining in the lugs, but they’re nowhere near as nice as the heart-shaped loveliness in this lug joint. I came across this excellent photograph at the Ride On blog.
