A Joyful Heart - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday - January 20, 2016



A favorite quote, one that I often remind myself, is from Mother Teresa:  "A joyful heart is the inevitable result of a heart burning with love."  Such true words!




With Mother Teresa's words in mind and with Valentine's Day rapidly approaching, I decided this week's Wonderful Handmade Wednesday blog post would showcase handmade heart items along with other artisan work that would make great Valentine's gifts.  I hope these picks put you in a joyful mood and that will visit the shops of the artists who are featured:
