The Hippest of Hearts


Happy weekend friends, with Valentines Day right around the corner I have hearts on my mind. I wanted to share some of my hip heart finds that I will be making, wearing and decorating with. Above, these sweet little trousers can be found on Esty or you could create them on your own. Below, a simple heart pillow created by Noodlehead can add just the right amount of Valentines Day wow factor you are looking for. If you sew the tutorial walks you through each step here, my daughter Sarah is making one for me shhhh it’s a surprise. She sews way better than me.


I wear hearts year round, don’t laugh it’s fun, so every Valentines Day I try to find a new way to infuse the love. A simple leather heart patch on a cardigan can add the perfect touch. Learn how to create this one of a kind cardigan by IHOD here.


Below, pretty much any vintage marquee is going to be hip and I am in love with this one from Project Decor. Paired with simple bedding, a colorful quilt and a burlap ” I love you” pillow for perfect harmony in the bedroom, hehehe.


Since we are talking about hip hearts, how hip is this tropical home’s painted pathway to Love? You can re-create this look by drawing free-hand hearts with side-walk chalk or creating a stencil and flour chalk for a more professional look from A Practical Wedding. An easy way to spread some Love on Valentines Day at your home (idea: the stencil would be fabulous at a casual wedding reception or ceremony leading the way from the parking lot).

Below, this was an end of the year teacher gift but it could also be created for Valentines Day and copied for everyone. I have also seen a version of this hand-made heart with the bride, groom and wedding party. I hope these hip hearts inspire you to spread a little Love at Valentines Day and all year long.  cathy

      So simple yet changes the whole look her other idea up-cycling a cardigan on her blog is also interesting.
