If you've been to the Duck Inn to 
celebrate a romantic occasion, 
you may have received one of
Robert Held's Heart Paperweights.
We started buying them several years ago from
his Art Glass Studio in Kitsilano.

Our Hearts overflowed the basket and reminded us 
of this print by Rebecca Davies, 
a dear friend and artist who is no longer with us. 
We think of her everytime we walk past the Hearts!

Robert Held has moved his studio to 
Parksville on Vancouver Island
 and has stopped making Hearts.
Our basket now looks like this.

While searching for something to replace the Hearts, 
Cora has been amusing herself by dressing 
Willow up in Heart necklaces!
She looks thrilled, doesn't she?
