Happy Friday, Friends! :) Welcome to my 1st official "Find the Story Friday"! My plan with these (and this may evolve over time) is to post a pic of a person, place or thing that I found interesting and see if it stirs up a story in any of you as well.
Here's my pic of choice for this week:
And if this one doesn't quite inspire - here it is from a different angle:
These are my Lost Balloons. I have to admit - I just thought they'd make kind of a cool picture at first. But, as I got thinking about it from a story angle - I envisioned two things.
#1 - A kid's birthday party in the park. Maybe the birthday boy/girl got their little hands on this lovely bundle of balloons - hoping it would fly them away. Maybe he/she just wanted a bird's eye view of family and friends celebrating. But his/her hands are a little slippery with melted icecream and the balloon bouquet gets away. *tears* Goodbye, balloons.
#2 - (the dark side of my brain) A child is walking home with a balloon bouquet he/she saved all their pennies to pick up at the corner grocery store. But, it gets lost in the struggle between child and kidnapper! Eek!
Just some of my thoughts... :) What are yours?
Have a FABULOUS weekend!! I'll be back on Sunday with a post about some great artists I know!
