My sister had a garage sale out in the Jersey ‘burbs today and the whole family converged. It was fun. The weather was great. We laughed a lot.

She was selling a heart-shaped pin that she had never worn. It caught my eye because I love heart-shaped jewelry and because it was silver and gold and looked very artsy. She told me to take it.

And so I did. It wasn’t until I got home that I realized the silver heart overlaying the gold one could be lifted to reveal a message:

My heart is a home for love.

The artist’s message, also something I didn’t notice until I read the cardboard piece later, explains that he acquired the materials for his jewelry by traveling the world as a modern-day sailor.

I can’t wait to wear it.
