Flowers On A Friday - Guerrilla Style

This is how you do Flowers On A Friday- Guerrilla Style. I gathered a small bunch of wildflowers, tied them together with a velvet ribbon, and left them on a random car. I was thinking about how happy it would make me to receive such a gift, so I made a second tiny bundle for myself, and put it in a bud vase beside my bed. This is the sweet stuff!

That is so sweet and thoughtful! (Not to mention amazing - I can't imagine being able to gather wildflowers in December!)

And I am so glad you gave yourself a little bouquet of wildflowers too. When you look at them on your nightstand, it will be a delightful reminder of not only how good it felt to do such a lovely thing for a stranger, but also of what a lovely person you are to have done it!

That is really sweet and cute. It would make me happy too! :)

Not only am I jealous of the person who received your flowers, I'm jealous of you for living in a place where you can still find flowers.

I do feel lucky to live here, and it did feel great to do something kind for a stranger. I can't wait to do more Guerrilla acts!
A word about wildflowers. There are very few around here right now, I think I would have had an easier time creating a wild mushroom bouquet.

Lovely gilding lilies! Guerrilla acts of kindness make the world a better place. I was going to leave my tiny act of kindness to myself, but I'll share with you. Yesterday was my get more local accounts day where me and hubby bring goody boxes to local cafes to sample. On the way to our last prospective client, we saw a hungry homeless kid by the freeway and gave it to him instead. He was so happy. So happy my husband is likeminded. Great work Gilding!xoxo
