I received a most unusual text message yesterday evening. It was a request from a friend for an “emergency elf” for her daughter, who, she said, is a true believer in all things elf like. But there was more. Her daughter’s boyfriend had left her and she was all alone in her flat.
So here is an elf to mend a broken heart. She comes adorned with wild pansies which are also known as Heartsease; a flower believed to heal a wounded heart.
As well as being hopelessly romantic, she is also today’s 29 Faces in May.
