This goes out to all my friends I have made here on RedBubble who have loved and inspired me.. from the Cockles of my Heart,, thank you♥♥

One possibility of the origin of “warm the cockles of your heart” may be an alternative definition of “cockles.” Some say the chambers of a kiln were called cockles, although that usage has apparently fallen out of common use. Under this theory, the cockles of your heart are analogous to the cold chambers of a kiln, which must be warmed to a certain temperature in order to function at its best. It could be argued that a nostalgic movie or other life-affirming experience warms the cockles of your heart in the same sense that a fire warms the “cockles” of a kiln.
