Tiny Messages

After noticing all those fun stickers on the street,
I bought some tags and wrote little messages on them,
and then hung them outside for people to take.



Hopefully people will spot them and smile!

I've been a regular guest here for some time now. Today I felt really sad and low and I was just about to start feeling miserable hen I thought about your blog. Here, the first thing I saw was your tiny messages of love and joy. You brought a smile back on my lips (again). Thank you very much.

Great job! Every person should do where they are good at, so I'm not jealous at your creativity but today I'm really feeling satisfied by seeing you doing what you're good at (for as far as I can say that). Thanks for making people smile. I try that too, in my own way. (Ok, what a weird comment... lets say that is the effect of the first sunny day this year.) :)

Katie your blog is the happiest I`ve ever seen :)

The world and everyday living in it is full of little miracles for us to figure out..we are like children exploring new things all the time. We shouldnt think we have already seen everything cos its always possible to see it in a new way.

Wish you all the best :)

Thanks for the smiles!

Sofia Morgado said...

Loved it! Can I do this also? ;)
I remember something that was news in Portugal last valentine's day. It was about a young man that has been leaving love letters with a rose to whoever may find them. He's been doing it every single day for 1 year already. And there is always someone who takes them and probably read'em and at least smile.

I just loved this idea of sharing some love. Just as I'm loving to read your posts and keep smiling with all the colour you share here!
Thanks for that! :)

xo,
Sofia

Mark Anderson said...

I must say that those are brilliant!

Kudos!
