Mercury Glass Heart...

It's the season for love...

(click photos to enlarge)

for hearts....


Since hearts are fragile,
being kept under glass in a cloche
 seems smart...


maybe...
even locked away with a key...
for protection?



but...
a heart should never be without romance
so there should always be roses :-)


Tonight I am joining...

I love all those faded pinks with the white! And what a pretty heart. I definitely need more cloches! Where do you store them? Sorry to hear you've had computer issues. Maddening! xx

Beautiful display Bella, I just love mercury glass too! I have a hard time finding cloches in my area, I nee to be on the hunt, I saw one at TJ Maxx but it was so large I wasn't sure where to place it so I passed, well hopefully a size smaller will come along! Your post are always so beautiful Bella, I have been meaning to tell you that! Hugs, Marilou
