A Make-Do Heart, La Coeur d'Bricoleuse

Pardon my French, but you get the idea, a battered heart held together with binding wire, a pendant with missing stones, an 1800s era gilded shoe button, a 1920s era brass chain, et voila, something for Valentine's Day that says it all.  Our hearts may lose their shine, their untrammeled contours; they get pushed around, but a repaired heart presents a grander story than an unblemished one.  Here's to mended hearts and courage.  (Coeur-age.)
