Happy Valentine's Day, Shadows

Happy Valentine's Day!

Muffy, at Muffy's Marks, shared this idea of placing a ring in the fold of a book to see its shadow, which just happens to cast a heart. How appropriate for today. Happy Valentines Day everyone!
Thanks again for the challenge, Muffy. It's not as easy as it looks unless the ring is a wide one. My first photo, is of my Bill's wedding band on satin and pearls, used in my wedding bouquet. ( Apologies for the lack of clarity in both photos.)
The second photo, is a silver ring of mine, in the fold of my Bible cover. Try it with your wedding band. It's exciting when you first see that heart-shaped shadow appear. Like I said, it is not as easy as it looks, just like marriage or any successful relationship. Love isn't always easy.
Once again. Have a great day of surprises and heart-felt moments. My day started with a kiss. How about yours.

I love how yours turned out. But I really like your post comparing marriage and getting this to work. Happy Valentines Day.

What a unique presentation for this day, Valentine's Day! Thanks to Muffy for inspiring it. And thank you for passing it along. Glad your Bill started it with a kiss. ☺

Lovely! And I liked your analogy to marriage.

Okay, Dar, I want you to revisit my blog when you get a chance - that collage. The shovel is a "U". There's a message in the red-outlined section. :)
