..and that got me to wondering about these little candies. Did you know they've been around and made by the same company since the Civil War? That's pretty impressive for a tiny little candy that frankly...well... doesn't taste like much! I do remember how much we loved them at Valentine's as a kid...but it was all about the sayings!
So I used a few for a photo shoot of my new little heart pixie. I had such fun with the details on this one! She has the newer sculpted face and a new style of wings.
Her hat has a little embroidered heart..
and her skirt has a scalloped edge so you can see the pretty scalloped vintage petticoat underneath.
Definitely a little sweetheart!
