Lake Michigan and Platte River

This photo was taken a couple of years ago...It's where the Platte River flows into Lake Michigan....My absolute favorite rock finding spot. The rocks are worn smooth from the sand and water...and are just beautiful to look at and touch. I cannot leave them be...I have quite a collection. I use them for my finders keepers project.....speaking of which...I think it's time for another artwork release soon! :)

It's time for another "finders keepers" release! Be on the look-out all you potential finders!
Number 14 will be placed today somewhere in Oxford or Lake Orion Michigan...I'm going to give hints later today, as to where I've left it. hehehe

edit.... #14 was found! Here is the email I received:

"My friend and i were embarking on a journey across town. Today was a fairly cloudy day and we started to feel some rain. At this point we were half way to our destination so we thought we were about to get soaked. that was when i stumbled upon your rock with the four leaf clover on it. This was also ironic because i was wearing my lucky shirt with guess what (a four leaf clover) on it. but anyway the rain stopped!"

This is what makes the finders keepers project fun for me....I love getting the notes when they are found! Thanks for writing finder #14!

Celebrate April 1st by being foolish! Lord knows there is worrisome news everywhere we turn lately. It’s overwhelming. So my friends…. I’m looking for fun and joy….have a funny story? Share it! Be a fairy godmother for someone…Do an unasked for favor for somebody. (unasked for favors are a lot more fun to do than asked for favors..LOL)

So…. in keeping with my “just for the fun of it” theme today …I’m releasing another finders keepers somewhere in Oxford, Michigan today... (#15...I know I'm out of order......15 seemed a really good April fool's choice....#14 will be released later) …..Keep your eyes peeled! :)

Well, I'm back at it.....hehehe
Finders Keepers lucky#13 has been released in Lake Orion....Happy Hunting!
I did give a bit of a hint to a fellow artist....but it's snowing here...and lucky #13 will soon be covered! I hope the spray varnish I used keeps the ink from running... I see now that the photo is a bit blurry....whoops.
