"Love you to pieces" is kind of a weird phrase, if you think about it. I googled it to see where it came from and the first known use of "to pieces" was way back in 1788. The English say "to bits." It might have it's origins in the phrase "blown to bits" which isn't very pleasant. But the general meaning has always been "a lot, almost beyond description."
In our extended family, however, it has morphed into "I love all your pieces" based on my nephew's adorable mess up when he was little. So I knew exactly which Christmas card I wanted to give my mom this year! She'll love it... to pieces! : )
