In the Shape of a Heart~Written By Gabby Angel


The song

I had listened to my Jackson Browne CD, just the other day “The Best of Jackson Browne”. Many good songs on that CD, but one song stuck in my mind. Not because of the lyrics exactly, but more the tune and the title of the song. It’s called “In the Shape of a Heart”, the song kept coming back to me more than a few times.

Then, an idea struck me! How many things do I own personally In the shape of a heart? Surely I am not the only one who likes things shaped like a heart, of course not. I believe the most popular jewelery designs are the heart and the cross. Right now we are talking hearts though.

In the Shape of a Heart

Performed and written by Jackson Browne
It was a ruby that she wore
On a chain around her neck
In the shape of a heart
In the shape of a heart
It was a time I won’t forget
For the sorrow and regret
And the shape of a heart
And the shape of a heart
I guess I never knew
What she was talking about
I guess I never knew
What she was living without
People speak of love don’t know what they’re thinking of
Wait around for the one who fits just like a glove
Speak in terms of belief and belonging
Try to fit some name to their longing
People speak of love


Love

Although I do own a lot of cross earrings…Back to hearts, I can distract myself quite easily when thinking of earrings. I own too many earrings to count at this moment, I can safely say well over 100. At any rate, hearts and some of the odd, quirky or unusual things in the shape of a heart that I own? Then all of you can think about what objects you own in the shape of a heart, too.

We ladies are drawn to the heart shaped objects, because it symbolizes love aren’t we? Or perhaps because it makes us think of our own heart, if it’s an open and loving one specifically. Looking around here are some examples of objects I own “In the shape of a heart”.
Favorites
One of my personal favorites a real heart shaped flat rock, Dad found years ago. I do treasure that one, made by nature and found by my Dad.
The next about a dozen craft type hearts: wooden, wicker,  hammered bronze and glass. A cute little tiny green colored clock in a heart shape, another clock of a kitty with a heart where the hands of the clock are located. A silver little heart shaped jewelry box, two cute little ceramic boxes, all in the shape of a heart.
A couple sun catchers hanging on my windows are very unusual and heart shaped. Several sets of wind chimes, too and I do love the sound of those, who doesn’t? A wooden shelf with heart cutouts, it a fairly large one and angels adorn that particular shelf.
That’s a whole other blog, those angels. Several heart shaped picture frames, can’t forget those. Too many, and I do mean many, too many earrings that feature a heart in some fashion. Just some examples of some of my assortment of heart shaped things.
Oh my, to think a song started this blog…Jackson Browne I must salute you!
