I am really having trouble writing this post. It is hard to believe whimsy week is already over! What a lot of fun I am having! I have really enjoyed my "flash inspiration" searches each day and while I have shared a few here I have actually spent a lot of time doing them. There is just so much interesting stuff out there, I couldn't stop!
Here's one from yesterday, LEGO Furniture!
LunaBlocks, which are giant Lego like blocks which can be used to make furniture. There are soft pieces, for couches, chairs and hard pieces for tables, book cases etc. I found them over at Web Urbanist a very interesting art and design blog. One of the fun things about doing these random flash searches is they have led me to places I haven't previously been. The design world is particularly rich with innovation that has been a complete pleasure to behold. I am sure I will be visiting again.
When I quite randomly chose the name of this blog post "Practical Whimsy" I initially intended to share the the whimsical finds that I thought would be most useful in everyday life. I'm still interested in doing that but I've decided to wait until next time Whimsy week comes around. Perhaps SERENITY week is already creeping into my psyche as I just want to take a simpler road. Instead I've decided to share the website Practical Whimsy, which I found while preparing for this post. This little site says, Whimsy, mixed with some practical thought and applications, and the right recipes makes for an exceptional and entertaining life. I couldn't agree more!
I thought I'd end as I started WHIMSY week, with a piece by Hundertwasser. An environmentalist in his heart he allowed whimsy to practically speak:
All in all it has been a terrific week and I will give my self an 8, my best score yet! Woo hoo!
