This heart is made to order from the same tree as this one:

The story is the same:

In Europe, June in Croatian language is Lipanj: a month when Linden trees are blooming with a seductive heavy scent. I love that smell, love the tea made of it as well. It is considered a sacred tree in some cultures, probably for the variety of medical conditions it is used for to heal.

Tilia cordata is a Latin name for a Small-leaved Lime / Linden. Cordata, for the leaves are in the shape of the heart. When I made this box:

http://www.etsy.com/transaction/51351238

there was a significant part left in the shape of a heart. Immediately I had two ideas in my head. One of them is this heart: having vascular parts woodburned as if it was a leaf. Did you imagine you are a tree? A plant? Did you imagine ever to be so small to walk into the plant cell? I did. It is beautiful there... This green heart is 1.5" in size. Hope you like it!

With love,

Tanja
