This lavender-filled heart is a commission from a young family buying their first home. They wanted to give their real estate agent a unique and memorable thank you gift. The house that the family settled on, which had an impeccably maintained interior from the 1950's, made quite a first impression on both the buyers and the agent: the living room walls, curtains and carpet were all lemon yellow. A fabric swatch from those curtains--vintage yet still in great shape--made a perfect memento for a very pleasant home-buying experience.
