I have long wanted to participate in a type of street art by which artists leave bits of art around a city for people to discover. I first heard about this type of street art when I learned of Knitta Please. Another one of my favorite examples is the Pothole Gardener.
I have considered so many ideas for what to leave about town. I was thinking about it again last night when I finally decided what to do.
These little bottles made a big stir at my first craft fair. Everyone who saw them brightened up. One customer said, "I didn't know I needed a tiny star in a tiny bottle!" There is something about them that just makes people happy!
I went out on my morning walk today and took a little bottle with me. I left it on a bench.
Lucky for me, I wasn't too far away when I heard a woman say, "Oh! Look at this!" I peeked back at her and she was handing it to a little boy. I could see how happy it made her and what an unexpected surprise it was.
I was happy for the next hour.
I left a note with the bottle to ask the recipient to e-mail me that they'd found it. I don't know if I'll ever hear back from anyone but if I do, I'll update the blog post. I'm going to change my wording, though. I know where they will find the bottle (I put it there). What I'd really like to know is a little bit about the person who found it and where they are keeping it.
I truly hope it brightens the day of the people who find these little bottles.
