This project is now well underway
- here are pieces 3-5, with my own special addition - I have added a tiny little label to the back which says “43thing.com” and has a smiley face (you can just barely make out the smiley face in the photo).
As I was taking the picture, a baby grasshopper hopped onto the right most piece—how cool was that!
Tomorrow is the fourth, and we have a downtown thing, I will want to get a few more pieces finished and that will make an excellent place to leave them.
be well, and Keep Smiling!
Well I have finally got this goal underway. I purchased a roll of sisal twine yesterday, and this afternoon I drilled holes in 5 pices of sea shell
- I have to be more careful, as I broke 3 of them, but two came out well - it is a bit challenging to thread the sisal through the hole, because the hole has to be kept small in order not to break the shell—but this is a picture (close up) of the two I left out in the world today as I journeyed. The sisal is long enough so that it will easily slip over the head, and leave the ocean polished seashell at about heart level.
I like using the sisal because it is so “organic” in appearance (and in fact)—the “look” is very homemade, and that it definitely is!
I have one other thing I am going to try and do with these, and if it works I will let all know. For now I will try and make some every week, and leave them somewhere, anywhere . . .
(I posted a larger view photo showing the pieces hanging on a grass knot in the gallery.)
This is fun!
. . . it is something I have always wanted to do, but never knew how to express it into words. Such a beautiful, uplifting, and simple thing—yet the impact on the finder’s life could be significant. Who knows what good will come from adding just a touch here and touch there. My thanks to the originator of this goal.
