    So, I took the photo of that last heart by hanging it on an arbor we have in our backyard. As I looked around, I realized I have a few winged art hearts fluttering about (mirror, birdhouse, and my favorite...a milagros covered heart.) Perhaps we'll need to do an "outdoor" art swap next?

    I just noticed that I've surpassed 10,000 posts. Call me Chatty McChatterbox, ha! Helene, I believe that makes my post about your gorgeous hearts #10,000. I suppose you should win a prize? Can I interest you in a collection of rusty nails?!

    ...10,000! That is amazing....and I'm the lucky winner!!! You know me and rusty things. ha ha ha

    Hey Nanner, I have the same milagros heart !!! (w/different wings though)...It normally hangs on my bedroom door but it is now in my workshop because I actually used it as a 'model' to make these wings for my next heart:

    Heavy cardboard w/chipboard flowers painted w/acrylics, aluminium tin (cut and punched with hammer & (not rusty nail! ha ha) and some "crystal" danglies.

    I thought you might like the prize! Flying Garden is gorgeous as well. Kismet on the milagros hearts. Mine hangs above the studio. It swelled a little in last year's rain and some of the nails started pushing out. I hammered them back in with new nails which have thankfully rusted over. Can't have the nails looking too fresh!

    Fandanie: Your winged hearts have flown in with great speed. They are so very lovely. Thank you so very much for the keepsake piece!

    H20-blossoms: Your beaded beauties are here as well. I really appreciate that I get to keep one for my lucky ducky self!

    Hello all! So many lovely winged hearts I see here...rusty bits and found objects. Love it.

    Despite wanting to do found object hearts...I am in full illustration mode right now and my mind wasn't arranging the bits very well! Here are my hearts which I painted while listening to Perelandra...they went through many color iterations before finally landing where they did!
