Old Primitive Style Heart ~ Love is the Answer

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love will never fail. This is God's promise.

This is an old primitive style heart, tattered a bit with a tattered opening revealing Love.  It is made to simulate the shape of a balloon with the string dangling from the bottom spelling out the word "Love".  The old crow sits proudly perched up on this wonderful heart of Love.

This would make a beautiful Valentine's piece or for any occasion.  It measures approximately 23" tall when completed as shown (including pedestal).

When there is love inside the heart, she can drift like a balloon above the mountains, high into the sky across the oceans.

Though life's journeys may find her tattered and pierced, nothing can make her lose sight of the strongest force on earth, Love.

Love matters.

The tattered opening reveals that there is love inside the heart.

The "string" for the balloon heart made of wire:

God be with you.
