Locks of Love…Padlocks That Is


So, I just learned about this new incredibly sweet lover’s tradition of sorts that I understand is referred to as Love Padlocks. I first read about it on one of my favorite blogs: Design Mom. I was of course fascinated by it so I googled it and wow! It is apparently a really popular tradition that started up in the 1980s in Hungary and has since spread like crazy. The tradition from what I can tell is to personalize the lock with the lovers’ names or initials, etc; place the lock; then throw the key into the nearest body of water to signify never-ending love. It makes me want to go put a padlock on something! What about you?

  2. Is the middle picture the bridge in Paris? I left a lock there with my boyfriend last summer but I had no idea it was a tradition in so many different places! BTW, throwing away the key is way more fun than you can even imagine 🙂

  4. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and
    tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now
    broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!
