Sweet Heart

Confession time. I'm crazy about Conversation Hearts. I know that like Candy Corn, they are one of those love 'em or hate 'em holiday treats. I love them. I've been known to devour boxes of them in one sitting.

Pretty and sweet. Cheerful, flirty little things. With lots of kind and loving words to say.

Elie Saab's Spring/Summer 2012 Couture show made me think of the sweet pastel hearts come to life, floating down the runway... How lovely.

Dear ones, I must say that I've missed our sweet conversations over the past few weeks! I hope we can pick up where we left off and plan to start posting regularly again- if not quite as frequently.  With Valentine's Day and Fashion Week right around the corner, you can bet there will be plenty to talk about.

So tell me, do you have a sweet spot for the pretty little hearts? Or do you find them too sugary for your tastes?


  1. I admit it, I love them...and I binge on candy corn every Halloween as well. Lovely painting, so sweet

  2. They're a bit much for me but my husband eats them by the box full too. I hope you're on the mend!


  3. so happy to have you back! I've always loved those little hearts too! . . . love your illustrations!!

  4. i have bowls of them at the ticking... come in anytime and munch away... and the infamous choc hearts that are cole and dana's favorites... yes, CH is in full swing!

  5. Jeannie, I thought that devouring an entire box at once was the only way to eat conversation hearts! I LOVE them and can't get enough.
    Glad to see you back. have a nice Tuesday.

  6. Jeanne, if you don't start selling your illustrations--in some form--cards, small prints--right here on your blog--at least!--I am going to be sorely disappointed. You get it so right every time. My sister has a similar ability and thinks that it doesn't "count" because it is simple. Hope that isn't the same for you, talented one.

    Bisous from a chilly Arles,

    PS. my word verification is "raver"--sigh, not since 20 years but it made me smile.

  7. Yay, you're back!!! I must admit, I don't love the taste, but I do love the color and their decorative uses!

    Please do share all about Fashion Week! I want to try and go to some shows in August. I just didn't get my act together for the Feb shows.

    xoxo Elizabeth
