Over grenzen

Vandaag heb ik 19 sjaaltjes achtergelaten in Parijs.
Om precies te zijn bij Place de la République. Wat indrukwekkend!

Hieronder vind je de boodschap aan de vinder.

Dear finder,

Today me and my family came to Paris to honour the victims of the 13th of November 2015.
Especially here and now, it is my strong belief that if we spread love and warmth again and again,
this world will remain a beautiful, enjoyable and peaceful place to live in, for all of us.

This scarf, hand-knitted by myself, is a symbol of that love and warmth.
It is a gift to you or someone you love.

Please take note of my blog and write where you found this scarf,
tell something about yourself you'd like to share.
In short, please leave love in words behind.

I wish you well,

Bon voyage,

  2. In my mailbox there was a beautiful story from Romain and Lucie. I don't see it published here. This is what they wrote:

    Hello Mieke,
    Thank you for this artistic and fraternal gesture. I love your scarf; warm as a hug in winter and colorful as a soul can be! I found it at around 3pm and am still wearing it! I can post a picture if you wish. Love! Romain and Lucie

    Thank you both!

  3. Hi Mieke,

    I am an australian student studying in Paris and me and my friend found your scarves in Place de la Republique. In a place away from home that can feel isolating and has seen so much sadness your gesture brought warmth back to my heart. Thankyou for your beautiful scarf, I wear it all the time.
