Haniela's: ~I love Hearts~

~I love Hearts~

~I adore Hearts~
They are very much close to my nature
I wouldn't say I collect heart shaped items, though I have a few; I just have a  really soft spot for them, especially those made from flour, sugar and butter...through in an egg...oh my!!
Okay, if you insist!
 Well, I guess  you are right maybe it is a slight obsession...

Petit Four Dobos Cake (recipe)
it's one jewel of a treat
that i won't get to eat
I'll pretend it's made from pickles and meat

 ~Love is the flower or flour? of life ~

Birds in Love
icing birdies so in love
flying high and way above
they landed near to Hani's delight
sweet perfection and will taste just right

~Spirit of the Heart~
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
"The Little Prince" ~Antoine de Saint Exupéry ~

I get inspired by  things I love; ever since I was a little girl I loved this flower, I guess it is just really unfortunate that I can't grow them.Come on! I planted 2 bags of them last year..none, I mean none came out.
I guess I better stick with cookies; cookie design  you see above was inspired by a  beautiful brooch.

LILY OF THE VALLEY: Return of happiness, purity of heart, sweetness, tears of the Virgin Mary, you've made my life complete, humility, happiness, love's good fortune. The legend of the lily of the valley is that it sprang from Eve's tears when she was kicked out of the Garden of Eden. It is also believed that this flower protects gardens from evil spirits. Also known as the flower of May.

Gift from friend
I love you back...you know who you are ;-)

Magic of heart sprinkles

Our Stone porch has a heart shape decor on the wall.

A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.
~Louis Nizer~

 Cookie Ring collection was inspired by real jewels
Cookie Ring Collection 
a jewelry store in the making
and it's from all your incredible baking
delicate rings designed like jewels what an epiphany
you might get a call from the jeweler Tiffany

  Have a heart that never hardens, a temper that never tires, a touch that never hurts.
~ Charles Dickens ~

If you haven't got any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.
