Description

This piece is inspired by the popular song published way back in 1947! Tiny applique hearts cut from a variety of vintage and recycled cottons are carefully hand-stitched into place with the addition of some genuine mother-of-pearl buttons taken from my collection of vintage buttons. I then hand tied two little bows from silk ribons for the bows; the piece is constructed on a running-stitch background.

This miniature textile would make a lovely gift for romantic occasions, to celebrate childhood, or a coming of age - pretty and feminine the work is framed within a double depth mount onto which is written the title as well as the artist's signature. The frame is lightly distressed whitened wood measuring 7"/18cms square and my studio stamp is on the back; it comes with glass and hanging cord in place, all ready to hang.

If buying as a gift I can supply a small white card to affix to the back of the picture on which you can write a personal gift message. Please let me know by email or in the comments box if you would like a card included.

If you would prefer to pay with a cheque, please email me with the title, price and item number so that I can I keep the work safely for you until your cheque arrives and advise you of the correct postage to add for your purchase(s).
