I got email from the ThinkGeek Overlords today. In anticipation of Valentine’s Day, their website has a section devoted to “Geek Love”. Fun stuff. Check it out.

“We less than three you!” (Geek-speak for “We ❤ you!”)

Sarah L.’s late-night surfing led her to Etsy.com, where she spotted this string of hearts by tascha – perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Heart-spotting Contest Entry

Sarah L. is a heart-spotter from way back when. Well, a few months ago, anyway:

Seeing Ingrid L.’s submission of holiday hearts on sale at Calgary’s Rubaiyat Gallery reminded me of these very similar sparkly hearts that were for sale at Heritage Park last summer (also in Calgary). While on holiday there, I spent a long time looking at these trying to decide if I needed more ‘stuff’. I passed on them but took this photo instead.

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!

…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.
