I Heart You! The Best of Etsy's Anatomical Hearts

Happy Valentine's Day! This year, I want to give some blog love to the prettiest and most unique heart art on Etsy... and to all the cardiologists and electrophysiologists who have treated me over the years. When I was in college, I had a heart procedure to correct a cardiac arrythmia. Last week I had my last post-procedure follow-up and received a clean bill of electrocardiac health. Ha, that makes me sound like a robot. Anyway, I'm very grateful to the doctors who helped me get to this place.

Here's a shout-out to Dr. Anna Milstein, who diagnosed me...
and to KatelynPatton on etsy, who created this gorgeous patchwork design on a pretty blue knitted tank.
I'd like to give a big hug to Dr. James Ong, who performed my heart procedure...
and to PlaidyPuss on Etsy, who created this incredible needle felted keepsake box. Yes, it opens!
This pretty Valentine is for Dr. Alan Naftilan at Vanderbilt, who oversaw my initial follow-up care...
and you can buy it from FawnPaperCo on Etsy.
My final thanks go out to Dr. Sharon Shen at Vanderbilt, who completed my follow-up care...
and to TheLuckyFox on Etsy, who embellished this beautiful vintage plate to make it really special.
My doctors listened carefully, asked the right questions, performed incredibly delicate work, and changed my life for better. On a day that's all about mushiness and hearts, it only feels right to give them some love. They deserve it! Okay, and also this stuff is just really, really cool. *grin*


  1. Etsy has so many cool anatomical pieces. A couple years ago, I looked for a pretty lung print...I know that's completely bizarre...but I wanted one to celebrate my weird and terrible respiratory system. Anyway, there were TOO many to choose from!

  2. I'm so glad to hear about your clean bill of health! I love that pretty card!
