Crocheted Heart Garland....just in time for Valentine's Day

We need to brighten this house up. The winter has been relentless, so now is the time to look toward Valentine's Day.
I had the idea of a heart garland for a while.
I found this pattern for a heart here. I started out with this pattern, following it exactly, except I added one round of single crochet around the outside of the heart, to add size and to make a more "finished" look.
I made a long single crochet chain to string the hearts onto....
I love the look of our livingroom window.
Valentine's Day, here we come!!
