Happy Valentines Day!

I hope you are having a lovely day! Here's a heart mosaic I made because I had always wanted to buy one but when I found out how simple it was to make a mosaic I made my own...and yes, it was great fun smashing the plates!
And here are some mini hearts for the miniaturists out there. I was looking at Marlies Dutch website and found this tutorial on how to make a wreath - thanks Marlies! Now, I don't understand a word of Dutch but she had very helpful pictures. I used some waxed thread to make my wreaths and was easily able to shape them into hearts. And here's what Liberty found the Valentine's Day fairy had left in her room over night - a pretty little row of hearts pegged to the valance at her window. She noticed them straight away!
And lastly what's the use of having a heart shaped cake pan if you don't make a Valentine's Day cake. Liberty had the cake pan out of the cupboard at the crack of dawn, that girl lives to bake...and eat cake mixture...and icing! As soon as she saw the hearts on top (she was busy licking the icing bowl when I did them) she said,"Did you use cookie cutters to make those hearts mum?" and she was right, it worked surprisingly well. I just put the cookie cutters on while the icing was still fairly wet and sprinkled the 100's & 1000's in them and carefully pulled the cutters off. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!! (That's just a little expression we have here in NZ, not sure if it's worldwide!)
Enjoy your day!
