Ten Days




My neighbourhood has been filled with these public notices for the past Ten Days. The first few times I walked past them and thought they were all the same and then I realised in fact each was completely unique to the people who live in the house. It's a wonderful idea, these three are my particular favourites but there are some other lovely decisions (such as one taking a picture of all the dogs who walk past and having them on the fence, another was a chart for people to write down all the birds they have seen).
The above read:

1. For ten days the residents of this home will bake a batch of cookies each day and deliver them to friends and family

2. For ten days the residents of this home will dance together in the evenings

3. For ten days the owner will post a hand-written letter to friends every day

Does your neighborhood also come complete with fairies, unicorns and leprechauns? Because it sounds pretty magical :)

I would like my neighborhood sign to read..."For ten days the residents of this neighborhood will will pick up their own trash and park thoughtfully so as to allow all residents to fit into the parking lot and side streets. And give out free high-fives and smiles."

that's so adorable.
i could live like that!
but unfortunately i just live in a suburb where lawns are regulated and every house looks the same. that's why i'm determined to make the inside look different.
