My project began with a metal heart that I purchased in a gift shop in Sheridan, Wyoming, many years ago. The heart already had somewhat of a distressed appearance---I loved the rusty old key hanging from the wire. The antique handkerchief came from my mom...she was a waitress and this was probably one of those decorative hankies that waitresses back in the 50's wore in their blouse pockets. The "LOVE" hanging from the key is a wooden laser cut icon from Prima. I painted it with a gold leaf Krylon pen and then distressed it with Brushed Corduroy TH Distress Ink. It hangs from a piece of gold cording.
I've also uploaded another closeup photo with more detailed descriptions of my project.

Very pretty. Very nostalgic. Love it. I have some old fashion valentines, that were sent to my grandmother, when she was young, and they are beautiful, and very much like the ones in this wall hanging. This is very pretty. tfs.
