Hello and welcome to Blue Monday hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally. Thank you Sally for hosting this fun event!
Today for my blueness I have a pretty blue heart that I purchased from Kathy's Cottage. Every now and then I treat myself to a special little something made by one of my blogging friends. I collect hearts and this charming little heart just stole my heart! Kathy is so creative and always makes the most irresistible little treasures.

Look how sweet it was wrapped up. I almost did not want to open it but knowing what was inside I had too! LOL

I found the perfect little spot to hang it!

Kathy also gifted me with this pretty little vintage teatowel.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great week!
Bless you, Shirl

I wouldn't have thought ticking could look so good in a heart! The complete heart with rose and flag pin is a great idea!

I love ticking. It makes me smile. In fact, just today was thinking that these adorable ticking blinds (at country curtains) would be cute. Your heart is sweet.

Hello Shirl, I love your sweet heart with the roses. I like the ticking fabric and it did make a darling heart hanging. the wrapping was just as cute. The bird is a clever accent. All that and a sweet towel too. Your lucky day.

I had forgotten how pretty blue ticking really is. So shabby with the rose and the little bird completes it!

I am going to visit Kathy's Cottage! Thanks for sharing your lovely pictures.
