Exchanging books

               Some time ago my city introduced a new idea - book exchange. In the center of the city a few places were set to leave the books which people don't read anymore. You can simply go to that place, put your book there and somebody who may be interested in the book will take it.

The places where you can leave the books look quite nice. I saw a telephone booth or an old looking bookcase.

At first this idea was quite odd to me because I didn't really believe that people would use it. But I was wrong. I saw many books in there and the next day they were gone or replaced by other books. I myself like to read used books and when I want to buy a new position to my library I often choose a "used" one. There is some beauty to the already read book. Not only you can read the story in it but it also has a history of itself. Somebody else enjoyed it and now I can enjoy it as well.

Everyone has books at home which they don't need. Isn't it a great idea to exchange them? You never know who will pick it up. Maybe somebody who cannot afford a book, or maybe someone who was looking for this particular position for a long time, or maybe someone who simply wants to enjoy a good read in a tram or train.

The same, you never know who read the book before you. Maybe somebody famous, or somebody lonely, or someone happy.

I truly hope that in time there will be more of them around the city and that those who design the bookstands will turn them into real works of art.

Key bowl

           When I come home from work I never have a place to put my keys on. I decided to make a little bowl where I could put the keys and not worry that I would not be able  to find them later. 

 I used all the colors to color the bowl. I cannot wait to see how it comes out.

                Some time ago I heard about a great idea. You can cut your hair and send it to the charity called "Rak'n'Roll" foundation. They will help to make wigs out of the hair and give it to women who are undergoing chemotherapy.

I decided to join and donated my hair as well.

          The Christmas stocking I made and later bought to support an environmental organization, which will use the money to buy food for birds. Good cause :)

The unknown plant

        When I was in the mountains I saw those beautiful plans growing amongst the stones. I was captured imediately by their shape and color. And also their strength in growing in such difficult conditions. 

       One time I saw a piece of the plant just lying on the road, so I took it home and put it in the flowerpot. In there, however, it looks very, very different.

       I wish I knew the name.
