Rusty Heart

Just a rusty heart
made by an amazing man
because he loves me! 


We saw these yard art hearts at the NW Flower and Garden show in Seattle last week. 
I really, really wanted one. 

My husband mentioned (rather than buy it on the spot) that he could make me one. We have an old whiskey/wine barrel planter that has finally fallen apart, so supplies were at hand. 

And yesterday he surprised me with it for Valentines Day. 

Now we need to go to the ReStore for some corrugated steel siding, so he can make me this:
Yes, I know how lucky I am. 

Every day is valentines when the one you love fills you with joy!

Obviously, your hubby is a real keeper. I'm kind of a love cynic but I am very happy when I hear about good men who have the capacity to truly love and appreciate another.
