Pretty Prudent Trend: Anatomical Hearts

This Valentine’s Day learn the anatomy of love with anatomical hearts!  You can find these lovelies on cards, cookies, bedspreads, and in absolutely gorgeous art prints. I have this one from The Black Apple hanging in our home. It’s one of my absolute favorites.

Use an anatomical heart as a way to turn Valentine’s Day into an educational lesson. Learn fun facts about your heart like your heart pumps 100 gallons of blood through your body every hour (the equivalent to filling up 1600 drinking glasses). Yum…

Great post, I love the anatomical heart trend too! I made a paperweight with a vintage anatomical heart print inside it for Valentine’s last year, with a vintage image: DIY heart paperweight. It was very well received, though I did get a comment on my blog at the time from someone who thought it was a bit creepy!



Love these! I love all things anatomical and skeletal. I recently stumbled across this AMAZING Chicago jewelry designer, Peggy Skemp, who makes a gorgeous anatomical line. Her signature piece is an anatomical heart locket, where the inside is as biologically accurate as the outside. I am coveting it and am saving my pennies for one:
