TAKE what you NEED

After a week of grey "porridge" weather we have woken to a glorious morning!
I've been thinking about how I bang on about the weather, but it really does affect me.
  I'm OK about getting my head down and bum up and working away when it's grey and horrible, but I feel infinitely more cheerful when the sun shines.'
I've found this really cool new time-wasting device called "Pinterest " - you  may have heard of it ;).
I can spend hours looking at all of the pretty things and getting inspired while pretending to watch TV with the Toy Boy.  He also pretends to watch TV with his lap-top on his lap, but he cruises cars and machinery and blokey stuff.
I was inspired this week by a picture of a simple sign, and decided - for once - to act upon my inspiration.
I pinned this on a little noticeboard between the workroom and the Organic Grocery Store it's been really uplifting to watch people stumble upon it.  Even if they don't physically take a "gift" , they smile.  I wonder how many "gifts" will have gone when I get in this morning?
 There has also been lots of work going on to stock the Stitchbird's new store in Wellington.
 Being back into my work is good!

Hi there! I love your idea of 'take what you need' - I really want to make a couple and spread them around town! Hope you're having a great weekend!

I love that sign! I have a similar one pinned in my pinterest (yep, familiar with that time-sucker). Thanks for the great share!

Thanks everyone. I got a little instant feedback yesterday as a guy came into the workroom with his gift in his hand. He was quite emotional...isn't that sweet?
I'm going to look for other related ideas - I think this is actually more fun for me than it is for the recipients!
