The Foundmagazine

I have known the Foundmagazine for many years – it shows one find every day and it often makes me laugh and almost cry…

“So, what’s this all about?
We collect found stuff: love letters, birthday cards, kids’ homework, to-do lists, ticket stubs, poetry on napkins, doodles– anything that gives a glimpse into someone else’s life. Anything goes.

We certainly didn’t invent the idea of found stuff being cool. Every time we visit our friends in other towns, someone’s always got some kind of unbelievable discovered note or photo on their fridge. We decided to make a bunch of projects so that everyone can check out all the strange, hilarious and heartbreaking things people have picked up and passed our way.

I just visited my friend Lynne’s blog and stumbled on Georgie’s blog and found this picture of her grandparents. I love it. It’s a cool cheesy.

It will be very off-mainstream, simple and hopefully stress-free. We don’t want anyone to combine the word stress and our wedding ever! x
