TWO HEARTS WARM UP A COLD AND SNOWY DAY

It was this time exactly one year ago that eastern Long Island, NY, was blanketed in over a foot of snow, and which didn't seem to leave until the spring.  Not this year.  Last night we received our first honest snowfall; all of a mere, sloppy and slushy two inches.  Despite this laughable amount, it is a tad bit damp, raw and toe-chilling cold outside.

So that's why I had to make these little decorative charms.  They may not warm up my toes, but they certainly warm my heart.  Multiple layers of deeply saturated hues of paint were applied onto glued together layers of corrugated cardboard, sanded down, then applied again.  A little bit of decoupage, some hand painting...... I had so much fun creating these.

They actually look quite delicious, don't you think?
