a heart to hold onto

One of the best ways to honor the memory of someone is by handing out thoughtful tokens at a service. It doesn't have to be anything big or extravagant - just a small item that reminds us of the love we will always harbor in our hearts that person. For me, the best remembrance favors are handmade objects made with love.

That's why I love these crocheted hearts by Cornflower Blue Studio (currently 10 for $6.) They come in a variety of colors, and would be perfect to hand out as a remembrance favor. Delicate and gracious, these hearts symbolize your gratitude for the guests' kindness and charity. And for the recipients, these sweetly crocheted hearts will keep the memory of the loved one alive in their own hearts.

Also, I just have to express my love for Cornflower Blue Studios' hand-embroidered notes. These little quilted messages can be customized, so if you want to send a kind thought to someone in need of it, this would be a very thoughtful and treasured gift!

Hearts are so sweet! They always feel sentimental. I like that you posted this close to Valentine's Day.

Funny, I didn't even think about the Valentine's Day connection, but it's perfect : )

I love the Thoreau quote. I remember after my Dad died, someone said: "the degree to which you grieve is connected to the degree to which you love." It made my grief seem worth it somehow, just to get the chance to love that much. Beautiful! :)

I love that quote Brittany! It's definitely a comforting perspective.
