Message in a Bottle …

Daily I receive messages from people guaranteeing me that I will make a zillion dollars if I pay them a small fee for search engine optimization.  As a result I tend to ignore most of the mail I receive but this morning as I scrolled through my inbox, “Message in a Bottle Invitation, Favors, Gifts” caught my eye.  The title immediately set off the music in my head and the song “Message in a Bottle” by the Police started playing on repeat from deep in my memories.  Then I remembered a winter 22 years ago when I spent a week in France.  During that trip I met a very lovely girl named Aude and we spent several days inocently trying to communicate. We celebrated the New year and spent a few more days together before I had to set sail and return to my not so exciting life at the bottom of the Ocean.

When I returned home after about a month, I went to visit my parents and found a letter from her.  It was short and sweet and realistic.  I took the letter rolled it up and stuck it inside a mini bottle that I had gotten while in Germany and put it into my keepsake box.  Over the years I have stumbled upon the bottle and the letter still rolled up inside.  I don’t know if I have reread the letter again since that night I first received it, but when I see the bottle it  fills me with memories and emotions. I am glad I still have it.  It is one of my favorite Keepsakes.

So this brings me back to the email.  It made me curious about the site so I went over to check it out.  It really is a great site filled with lots of great ideas.  Invitation, Gifts, Business promoting materials.  The owner of the site has created a format that can easily help you create and order everything you could dream of, including mailing the items directly out or selling you the pieces and parts so that you can create your own master piece.

It really could make a very romantic gift for your spouse or be the begining of a fantasy treasure hunt for your kids.  I encourage you to take a few moments and take a look at the site.


keepsakeObviously their options are much sexier than mine but as you can see I didn’t make the story up.

Bonne année
