Love Lettering My World – Week Four

While June is coming to a close over the weekend, I can hardly believe this is already the fourth week of my personal goal of leaving love letters behind every single day.

It has been so much fun, such a wonderful feeling to notice my love letters have disappeared from where I’ve left them. I didn’t stick around to see who picked them up.

However, that time I left a love letter on a bus seat, I couldn’t help but notice someone finding it. She got on the bus as I was getting off to switch lines, and headed straight for my seat. It was an interesting feeling to see her look down on the seat, take the love letter, sit down and start reading. That’s all I saw as the bus left the station.

Like I said before, I can only hope my love letters found their way into the hands of people who needed the most to read them. And because I believe that what we put out into the world has a way of coming back to us – I have a feeling they did just that.

You can take a look at and read my love letters in my guest post on MoreLoveLetters.com.
You can also find them in this Facebook album, and below is the list of places where I’ve left them behind.

 

– In St. Michael’s Church

– On a bust statue (Octavian Goga’s, in the park)

– In the grass next to a memorial plaque (for the Equestrian Statue of King Mathias)

– In a bunch of flowers at the farmers market

– Among someone’s shopping items

– In a childhood place, elementary school

– On a brick wall

 

Hope you all have a fabulous, love-filled Friday!

Wanting to learn

I really liked Carolyn Rubenstein’s blog post on what she would like to learn. Recalling her previous post which inspired my to write my own list of what doesn’t need to be perfect in my life, I immediately stopped reading.

After writing my own list of things that I want to learn how to do, I noticed some things coincide.

I think that says something about writers, artists and people in general. That we’re all only human. And that distance, upbringing, race or gender are unimportant when it all comes down to the things our hearts want.

 

I want to learn how to…

… relax

… say “No” more often

… take more time for myself

… let go

… deliberately dare to dream big

… play more

… always choose love

… be at peace

… not feel guilty about things out of my control

… smile more

… love truly unconditionally

… simplify my life

… listen to my intuition (more often)

… quiet my mind

… manage my time more efficiently

… stop procrastinating

… I want to learn to continually recognize that my journey is always a work in progress.

 

Thank you for the inspiration, Carolyn!

Dear Sunday, 24.June.2012

I love the Dear Sugar @CherylStrayed definition of a perfect couple "happy, humane and occasionally all fucked up".

On paper – by Estrella Azul

I saw how happy they were with each other, even though on paper it wouldn’t seem that way.

She was an artist with a true Pollyanesque heart, he was a realistic, straightforward guy. He liked classical music, it made her ears bleed. She was an introvert wishing nothing more than to stay at home with a good book, he was a complete extrovert always up for going out, partying with friends.

Yet… they worked. Wonderfully.

Love Lettering My World – Week Three

Life seems busy. Increasingly so. It was nice to document my week through the love letters I left behind, each one a little moment of my day. A little moment when I was fully present while writing and leaving the love letter behind. A little moment when I allowed myself to fully experience what ever I was feeling and wrote my letter accordingly. Searched for quotes accordingly.

I hope the love letters I left behind have/or will find the exact person who needed to read them.

You can take a look at and read my love letters in my guest post on MoreLoveLetters.com.
You can also find them in this Facebook album, and below is the list of places where I’ve left them behind.

 

– In a bush :)

– In a consignment shop

– On a billboard

– In someone’s bicycle basket

– On a window sill

– On someone’s front door

– On a car’s windshield wiper

 

Hope you all have a fabulous, love-filled Friday! ;)

 

PS: Can’t view my photos on Facebook? We should be friends there as well ;)

Upcycling – Cute Planters (1)

Let’s throw some ideas around.

Say you have some mugs you hardly ever use anymore. Ones you don’t like anymore. Or say you have cups which have slight beauty issues (the rim is chipped, paint rubbed off, hairline cracks, etc.).

You could throw them out.

BUT you could also find another use for them!

Like popping a potted plant in them. Chances are, you’ll never be able to tell they’re chipped, or “unwanted”. You won’t have to worry about adding too much water which could spill out from their plant saucers.

If they have a hairline crack, then just add the cup’s saucer too. That will look even cuter!

Place them on a window sill, a shelf, on the kitchen counter or dining room table.
