look in the tree


Very high up in a tree top a few blocks from our home, I notice someone has placed a handmade sign that says "LOOK". Hmmm... now does it mean for me to look at the tree top? Or maybe to look past and up in the sky? Or maybe just to look at the sign itself... it is, after all, done in pretty red bubble lettering. Or maybe the tree is trying to reason with everyone it allows to pass by. It could also be looking at me back and thinking, "what are you looking at?" hmmmmm... I wonder how many other people have noticed, stopped and looked?

Whilst on the topic of "looking"... some blog mentions that perhaps you'd like to stop and look at... a thanks to Miriam for including my squirrel-y valentine card on her blog made right guide; thanks to Nat for including my rainy day collage on her blog Adore By Nat; thanks to Teresa of Poppy Place PDX for passing on the Kreativ Blogger Award!; and thanks to Kristin of Dip Your Toes Into Something New for passing on the Sunshine Award. Happy weekend!

It makes me wonder how did they get up there to put the sign up :)

I think it is funny the things that you can find in different places. I probably would have stood there looking for like five minutes lol

And, congratulations on your features!

CONGRATS!
I love it when people take the time to add a little somethin' somethin' to the surroundings (as long as it is visually pleasing, of course)and who wouldn't appreciate red bubble letters?

Look where you usually don't look. That is true inspiration!

Hmmm, so many questions. Where did that tree get red markers and paper? Is the tree left or right branched? Things that make you go Hmmmmm :D

What a great reminder to look UP!

Hollymark said...

I think that's really cool. Maybe a reminder to keep looking up? Walk with your head held high?

Haha I love it . . . I think the sign is just to make people look at the sign that says Look. :)

That's great. There's probably someone peeking out from behind a curtain to see how many people stop and look!

Plantress said...

I laughed. I love this sign. We need more folks that would do something like that. I also like the idea that someone is peeking out their window at all the people who see it!

Cute sign, I really like the fun balloon lettering. And it did make you look and think didn't it? Everyday should be an adventure, no matter how small. :)

Marilyn (Pulp Sushi) said...

That is a very cute idea. Sometimes we need to just stop and "look". :)

MOLLYC said...

I love that picture! It reminds me of the "God Billboards." It kind of seems like a message from the universe, doesn't it?

tattytiara said...

Wow, when's the last time you saw bubble lettering, eh?

Tara said...

maybe it just means: look, all around you - you'll be surprised by what you find.

i wonder if there's more around town...i'd bet on it!

best,
