Heart Shapes in My Home

I’ve had the thought for a while that I wanted to go around my house and property in search of heart shapes to photograph. A few years ago I did a similar thing by looking for and photographing cross shapes in my house and posted it on a Good Friday. So this week I got a chance to look for hearts in time for Valentine’s Day. Some of the more obvious ones I was aware of but I was surprised by a few heart shapes that I found.


This is one of a pair of French chairs that I found at the flea market several years ago. They were covered with bulky, poorly tacked on pieces of embroidery when I found them and I was thrilled to discover the heart shaped backs and (sort of) seats. The oil cloth is starting to come off and I need to decide what to do with that but I love them.

Bet you have had these heart shapes in your home at some point, too.


This metal stool is another flea market find. It sits between my kitchen and dining room.


Hope your week is filled with love.

  1. Hi Ann,
    I have never seen anything like those metal heart chairs. I wish I knew where the black one was used. One of the things I like about your blog is that you use your artist eyes to find things in your own world to talk about. That is a really great trait, Ann.
