A deadly sin?

Covetousness is a sin, perhaps not a deadly sin, but maybe just a "not nice"sin.
I hold up my hands to being guilty of it though and I am gripped by it lately every time I walk the dog. My neighbours neglected and overgrown garden boasts several very lovely hybrid cliveas and I have been trying to think of something I could offer as a swap for one of his "pups". Now this guy is a musician and something of an ascetic so maybe the idea of a cake would not be appropriate, wine ditto. An offer of a bit of gardening? Maybe not as it seems not to be high on his list of priorities. I did think to offer never to sing in his hearing and I am sure he would appreciate that but it is a bit of a copout as I never sing in anyone's hearing, yes my voice is that bad!
In the meantime I have decided to send him a version of this etegami and just lay it on the table!
So neighbour, there it is, I lust after your cliveas!

Another version done on watercolour card.


  1. Hi, Origame,

    Cheers, Sadami

  2. I can't believe I spelled neighbour wrong twice! No spellcheck in my brain obviously.
