A Dose Of Whimsy

It has certainly been a dreary long winter in many places.  I heard on the weather earlier in the week that we have gotten 5” more snow than Denver.  Crazy!

Today is another dreary, rainy, cold, and cloudy day.

Well……we certainly can’t control the weather, we all know that. 

All we can do is make the best of the weather that we have.

So…..I declare that we all need a big dose of whimsy!

To brighten our view one way or another.

Perhaps a small vignette in a shiny bowl.

Birds with crowns and more crowns and silver and vintage glitter all on a tray.

But…..sigh…..that just doesn’t seem whimsical enough!

We need more more more!

A whole WORLD of whimsy!

A place where every day is a Holiday.  Just one    b i g Holiday!

whimsy 029

Where glitter and smiles reign and in fact, are the norm!

And otherwise serious girls wear pink feathered wings!

whimsy 024

Where tiny little princesses live in vintage velvet lined jewelry cases!

And inspiration is everywhere!

And ruffles, we must must have ruffles!

whimsy 035

And vintage lace everywhere!

So…..this is MY whimsical happy world!  Where is yours?  A little corner perhaps, or maybe one small shelf? 

If you don’t have one of those whimsical happy places, you MUST create one!  Pull out those little whimsies, the ones that you usually keep hidden away until the “appropriate” season.  Or maybe the things that just don’t seem to fit into your usual world.  And place them in your little whimsical world.  They’ll make you smile and feel way less gloomy!

    I'm loving your little whimsy world. Mine is definitely my workroom/extra bedroom,where I can scatter all my favorite things everywhere.
