What is your most beautiful thing?
Is it your one year old niece's golden smile? The pale pink peony buds in your garden? A silver ring given to you by your grandmother? Your shiny red Vespa scooter? Is your most beautiful thing a place or a moment? Is it a philosophy or a value?
Join more than two hundred people from all over the world who will be blogging, tweeting & writing about their own most beautiful thing.
You could post a photo or write a prose piece about your most beautiful thing. You could write a small stone or show us a piece of artwork you've made in honour of your most beautiful thing. It's completely up to you. You could be extravagant and post a whole series of your most beautiful things.
We'll make a directory of everyone who's taking part here, sending new visitors to your blog, and we'll also re-post our favourite entries on this blog over the following month.
If you're interested in taking part, email me with 'blogsplash' as the title and I'll send you more details. You can get thinking and set up your blog post as soon as you like.
We're also already using the #themostbeautifulthing hash tag on Twitter.
Do invite your friends and share this post on Facebook and Twitter. You can invite people to the Facebook event here. The more the merrier!
I can't wait...
