LOVE is all you need.

Well, love and some great photo editing apps, of course.

Prisma is one of my favorite go~to photo editing apps that transforms your photos into works of art using the styles of famous artists like Van Gogh and Picasso ~ as well as world famous ornaments and patterns. The cavalier photo above (Cleo and Bogey) has the filter Servers[dot]com applied to it at 100%. Each filter can be scaled back by percentage points to lessen the intensity as you like.

Are you ready to give it a go? Turn your very own photography into timeless and priceless works of art!

[ hello February ] . . . Mini Conversations

Sweethearts (also known as conversation hearts) are small heart-shaped sugar candies sold around Valentine's Day. Each heart is printed with a message such as "TRUE LOVE", "ME + YOU", "SAY YES", "SWEET PEA", and "PUPPY LOVE". Sweethearts are made by the New England Confectionery Company, or Necco

Five Things You Didn't Know About Conversation Hearts

Made in Revere, Massachusetts, this classic candy, also known as Necco Sweethearts, has been around for almost 150 years!

If you've been in a drug store or grocery store lately, you've probably noticed that the shelves are stocked with Necco Sweethearts in preparation for Valentine's Day. The conversation hearts are virtually synonymous with February 14, but here are five facts you might not know about them:

  1. Daniel Chase, the brother of Necco founder Oliver Chase, created the first "Motto Hearts" in 1866.
  2. Before World War I, Sweethearts candies came in a variety of shapes, including baseballs, horseshoes, and watches.
  3. Each year, about 45 sayings get included in the mix—but you can personalize the candies, too.
  4. To make enough Sweethearts for Valentine's Day, production for the next year starts right after the holiday, in late February, and continues until mid-January.
  5. More than 8 billion of the candies are manufactured each year—that's about 100,000 pounds per day! ...and that's a LOT of conversations ~ LOL!
