Try A Little Tenderness ♥

In a less Otis Redding-y Try A Little Tenderness kind of way…

(Excellent as that may be!)

… but definitely in a more helping others, random acts of kindness, donating, goodness me, doesn’t it feel lovely to complete a fantastic deed?!” kind of way!

It could be an anonymous gesture:


(Pssst! You could write whatever you wanted to on a card before hiding it somewhere unexpected, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a quote! How about “hey, eat your greens!” or “jeez, could that sweater look more perfect on you or WHAT?!” *crosses fingers that they’re actually wearing a sweater*.)


Or one that’s not at all:

  1. I love that second picture, what a beautiful idea.

  2. Aww, these are lovely! Such great ideas.

  3. Jen & Gem – Wow, say those names quickly ten times! 😉 Thank-you very much! Aren’t they?! I’ve been meaning to join a library for MONTHS now and when I do, I’m definitely going to take a leaf out of picture three’s pretty look book and place random cards everywhere!

  4. Love that last photos especially!

  5. After a really crappy day, these photos made me feel so much better 🙂

  6. I’ve alwys wanted to write something in eyeliner at the bathroom in a coffee shop or something. I just never had the guts to do it. I thik that I’ll take a pretty picture and stick it in a book next time I get one from my school’s library.

  7. I love that last photo! I think some people (myself included…about 10 yrs ago) think that “being kind is lame.” In actuality, thinking being kind is lame is LAME! 🙂

  8. There is nothing lame about being kind but so many people seem to think there is! So glad you posted that last photo 🙂 I might even make it my profile pic…
