Jessie's Towder and Nests

WHIMSY - extravagant, fanciful, or excessively playful expression; an odd or fanciful notion. [Click here for this weeks Bliss Initiatives]

It looks like Jessie is being influenced by the art I have been showing her! On top is "Good Morning City, Bleeding Town" by Hundertwasser  (Image from Gallery of Surrealism) and below that is "Look, look my towder!" By Jessie Sprinkle. 

And here she is working in another medium! "This be a castle mommy."

 Jessie and I got to work on some whimsical crafts. We found two bird nests in our new backyard, one occupied one not, which led to conversations about how and why birds build nests.  To the occupied group Jessie declared, "I no like those Birdies!" When I asked why she replied, "They fly away when I talk loud." The unoccupied nest was even more problematic and we called "Here birdie birdie! Come back your house!" for most of an afternoon.  Jessie seemed really inspired by the fact that some birds use all sorts of yarn, feathers and other fuzzy scraps to make a nest and so she decided to make one for her little red birdie friend.

And then when it looked like Birdie really liked her nest, Jessie decided she needed to have one for herself!

Clearly Jessie has earned a 10 out of 10 for her whimsy week! Me?... still working on it!
