"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
Philippians 4:8

Heart Jewelry

I have a button jar full of odd and misplaced buttons. I found some that are actually made of pearl. I cut out a piece of heavy cotton in the shape of a heart; then I sewed on the buttons, layering some of them on top of each other. I sewed a safety pin in the back. This makes for a nice lapel pin. I have made these in red and pink also, but the pearl-white one is my most favorite.
This cost me nothing because I had the buttons, cotton and thread.

 Michael's craft store had these jewelry rings on sale for under a dollar. I purchased two packages and I gathered up some heart charms from old and new jewelry remnants I had in drawers and some were in my garage. Because Valentine's Day is approaching, I encourage you to gather up some old charms, or even just one heart and voila, a necklace is made! REMEMBER, it is fun and smart to recycle!
