“Love Locks”

Padlocks of Passion: kc8oLkn6i

A Campaign Push created by Runaway Nuns and Leprechauns

Today I read an article about the famous Pont des Arts bridge in Paris. If you’re not familiar with it, in brief, it’s the bridge that’s been adorned with approximately one million padlocks. So much so that it has earned the moniker “Love Lock” bridge; not to slight the padlocks which are affectionately referred to as “love locks”. The locks have been placed there by a mere fraction of the lovers who have toured this city of love. Using the bridge and the lock as a way of expressing their undying feelings for one another, they sign the locks then lock them on the bridge’s metal grills and toss the key into the beautiful Seine River below. The bridge connects the École des Beaux-Arts to the Louvre and it overlooks the Eiffel Tower.

This simply beautiful tradition, so rich in sentiment, affection, passion and devotion has come to an end. Sadly, the locks have been deemed a safety hazard and must be removed.

In a tribute to this lovely tradition and in an effort to preserve it’s foundation and dedication to undying feelings, we are creating a “padlocks of passion” campaign. This campaign is designed to afford everyone an opportunity to embrace and showcase his or her passion and affection for the person, place or thing that makes them who they are, or that drives them crazy or wild, or that completes them or that simply makes them smile. This can be you lover, your children, your parents, your favorite ice cream or your pony. Basically, you can declare your passion for whatever suits you!

Instructions:

1.   Purchase or pull out an old padlock

2.   Write your name and your “passion’s” name on it

3.   Snap a pic of it

4.   Email the pic to us at elitepottagold@gmail.com

5.   Attach the padlock to a chain link fence, a bridge rail grill, a park bench rail or anything/place that you can securely place it

6.   Throw the key into a river, lake, the ocean or any other large, deep body of water (no, your backyard pool doesn’t count—no take backs)

7.   Place a comment in the comments section of this post letting everyone know you’re in, where you hung your padlock and where you tossed the key

Each day we will copy, paste and upload any new pics and we will keep everyone updated on our progress.

If this takes off like we think it will, we will create an entire page dedicated to our “Padlocks of Passion” campaign. The plan is to eventually have our entire blog family featured (somewhere) by way of this campaign. Hopefully this will spread like wildfire.

Having a passion fosters love, life and hope so let’s start a blogfest of passion!!

Hi, is this an odd name for a blog or what? We'd actually prefer it to be known as a peaceful, magical and mystical spot. It's a spot where you can stop in for a daily dose of love and laughter sprinkled with a bit of chaos, confusion and lunacy. You can get great recipes and cooking tips, as well as drilling and building ideas. Who does that? Who knows their way around the kitchen and around the tool shed?
Well, I guess that's part of what'll make this blog so interesting - that and the brief glimpse you'll get into a very elite and exclusive lifestyle - one that supports a "never a dull moment" and "everything ain't for everybody" attitude.
By the way, remember to keep an open mind (no judging or finger pointing), a watchful eye (be on the lookout for random giveaways), and a positive -pay it forward-attitude (everybody could use an occasional leg up).
Now I know it sounds easy, but don't get it twisted, this "dance ain't for everybody", it's not always a bowl full of cherries, but we make the best of it by drinking a whole lot of lemonade and by praying daily for peace, patience and understanding; after all, we woke up like this!
