Almost Free Love

My heart art project:

Thrift shop buys. 10 inch embroidery hoop for 25 cents. Woolen plaid fabric for 5 cents.

Self-made heart from sleeves of a gently worn baby fleece shirt and crocheted ribbon. (Rear view)

Close-up of the plush fleece.

Thrift store metal heart (it opens for potpourri or sweets) for 25 cents.

Hides a hole from old thermostat.

Fits right in with our "brocante" furnishings. Love this mirror!

Fun, frugal craft project on display.
Took me 20 minutes to make this wall decoration.
Cost: 60 cents. 

I am blog partying with City Farmhouse at

What a fabulous speedy little project - and for so little money as well - brilliant! It looks lovely.

Those are the best kind of decorations, I think. Such a pretty one too and just in time for Valentine's Day.

I really like those brick floors. :)
