Late for Christmas............

But, Perfect for Valentines Day!!

A couple years ago I made this tree. I cut all the hearts from wood with a jig saw. My husband helped me with the tree........ and a terracotta pot from the garden. 

This is the before photo.

And now all Shabby!

Originally I hung the hearts with wire........I cut that off and replaced it with twine.

Looking pretty for Valentines day!

I sanded the hearts back to show some of the colour underneath.

I love the  blog "LESSology" . It has been a while since I entered any of the challenges. (Too many other commitments) One of my all time favourite things to do is recycle and alter items.......and I just love Hearts!  So I made an extra effort to finish painting my tree , which I had started working on a few days before Christmas.
"You are my Sweetheart" is the challenge , add a heart and a recycled item to your creation. The only thing new is the twine.

Its the weekend tomorrow.......woo hoo
