A lot of my favorite bloggers are participating in this lovely networking project - One World, One Heart. The idea is for bloggers to meet and greet other bloggers. Each participant rewards their fellow bloggers by offering a free giveaway to anyone who leaves a comment on their One World, One Heart post.
I spent several hours last night cruising the list of participants - which you can find on the project site, just click on the image or title link above. I certainly left comments for some of the lovely giveaways offered, but more importantly, I spend some time with old blogging friends (some I visit regularly, some I haven't had a chance to visit in awhile) and met some wonderful new bloggers who I hope to add to my list of inspiring blogs to visit whenever I can find a minute or two minutes or sixty eleven hundred minutes.
I was so inspired by the variety of blogs and prizes I came across, I wanted to spend part of today finding or making something to offer in return. I was going to make something but then I found the perfect treasure at the thrift store when I stopped there on my way home from a couple of errands.
We're supposed to share hearts. Look what I found - HEARTS! The photo is lousy, sorry 'bout that. Still haven't fixed my photo storage issues. But trust me, these little hearts pins are so sweet. I didn't make them, but they are obviously handmade with love and attention to detail. Some have ribbon flowers, some are button flowers. Approximately 3" X 3", perfect to wear on your coat or sweater from Valentines Day through spring and on into summer. They'd be equally cute being held by teddy or doll, or used in some other decorative fashion. I have one pinned to my scarf at the moment.
I'm going to keep one each (button/ribbon) - one for myself and one for a friend - and send a heart off to three lucky bloggers. All you have to do to enter to win one is leave a comment here on this post. You must have an active blog of your own to participate. Make sure your comment links back to an e-mail or to your own blog where I can post a comment to contact you. I'll pull the names of three lucky winners at the same time as everyone else - on the evening of February 13.
Of course, if you're new to my little corner of the web, I hope you also take the opportunity to browse more of my posts either now or later when you have more time to visit. You can also hop on over to my general blog, Beach Treasure. I'm a bit more of a blabbermouth over there and since a lot more people read that blog regularly, I'm having a separate One World - One Heart giveaway there too!
