Heartstrings, redefined

Personalized Heart Strings Throw PillowIt’s hard, hugging Grandma from a thousand miles away, but here’s a way to remind her how very far those heartstrings stretch. And just in time for Mother’s Day– if you hurry!

With the Personalized Heart Strings Map Pillow from Felix Street Studio on Etsy, you can visualize those tendrils of love connecting you and family members from LA to NY or Piscataway to Pasadena. (Or Stockbridge to Boston, as James Taylor might have said.)

Just select up to four points in the US and how they connect– a wheel, a triangle?– and Felix Street will put little hearts in just the right cities and states. What a great way to show far off relatives– and the kids!– that even if you can’t shower her with kisses on Mother’s Day, that line is always there.

The map is machine embroidered onto ivory colored cotton duck and should be spot-cleaned. But tears don’t stain, so hopefully Grandma won’t have to get out the Scotchguard just yet. Awww.~Delilah

Order your Personalized Heart Strings Map Pillow from FelixStreetStudio on Etsy by April 27 to ensure delivery by Mother’s Day. It also comes with a customizable gift tag.

Editor’s note: Due to an overwhelming response, these are no longer available for purchase for May delivery.

    Doesn’t appear to be any way to order it—looks like she only had one and it’s sold?

    Sadly, she’s closed orders for now. That happens with small artists sometimes. Keep it in mind for holidays – just order early!
