Dear Vale,

that is really a wonderful gift. I love ex voto hearts but they are very very rare. Some posts ago I had a very great luck at a little fleamarket and found an old silverplated ex voto heart from the years 1850 til 1860 in a glass-frame. I was really surprised to find it and bought this treasure quickly.
I wish you much joy with your heart and a nice week,

Tanja

Goodmorning Vale,
Such a lovely gift. I have never seen something like that before, and I understand that it is something really special.

I have been working very much for a while, and I haven´t had the time for blogging. You know, the time isn´t endless :) :)
But it´s so fun and I´m very grateful for the things I´m doing.
Wish you a nice week and I hope I will have the time to visit you soon again.
Hugs from Mia
