February - the red heart month!

To me, February is heart month and I am not taking about Valentine's day at all!  On the 25th February 2011, very early on that Friday morning, I was pushed into theater for heart surgery.   A week later I went home to recover completely and to start life again.  It makes me very thankful for wonderful surgeons and nursing staff and that I could recover so completely to be able to walk good distances again (not what I used to do when I was running, but still, I am to scared to exert myself). 

It is so hot and humid here at the moment, I am drinking water by the liter to keep cool.  We are in for a good thunderstorm later this afternoon if the clouds are anything to go by.

Anyway, I had to make a few hearts for Valentine's day and they are really looking lovely!

Spare lilac ribbon makes the cotton and wool heart so light and airy!

Some of the cotton and wool hearts with lovely wooden button hearts!

Another upcycled ornament stuck to the heart brooch.

One of the few olives on my olive tree.  Hope you can see it!
I have this olive tree growing in a pot.  It started off, like most trees (ha ha), as a little bitty thing and has now grown so big, it needs to be transplanted into a proper place where it can grow and grow and produce lots of olives.  It has given me about 5 olives this year and I must say, oil pressing or export is now totally out of the question!!  But, what to do with only 5 olives??  No matter, proud mama I am!

Until the next time, may your days be long and jolly!
