Whimsy unleashed!

WHIMSY - extravagant, fanciful, or excessively playful expression; an odd or fanciful notion. [Whimsy week starts here. Click for this week's Bliss Initiatives.] 


Whimsy unleashed. Ha! Yesterday I wrote that as my "next post" primarily to kick myself into a higher gear. I've definitely been a little light on the whimsy this time around. I think primarily it is because I haven't really done anything I set out to do with my Bliss Initiatives. Last time I got really inspired by my "Flash Inspiration" searches and while I recommended doing them this time around  I haven't really taken the time to do so.  That is changing today!


Jessie has asked to work with her clay so while she does that Im starting off the search with "whimsical clay" and the first thing to show up was "whimsical clay houses." Here is the Wiggly House by Tod Van Duren.





Next up, since I'm working on my open house giveaways I searched "whimsical gifts" and found Catching Fireflies which promises whimsical goodies to brighten your day.  Some fun quirky items including:














I love the the bone shaped paper clips especially!


We're having a fire in our fireplace tonight so I tried Whimsical Fire and found this photo called Whimsical Fire Works by Brian Trainor:



And typing Whimsical without anything else revealed whimsical quotes in a drop down menu. Whimsical Wits offered the following:


"Preposition: An enormously versatile part of grammar, as in 'What made you pick this book I didn't want to be read to out of up for?'"
~ Winston Churchill ~



"What's my loftiest ambition? I've always wanted to throw an egg into an electric fan."
~ Oliver Herford ~



"I wanted to be an atheist, but I gave it up. They have no holidays."
~ Henry Youngman ~



Thinking about some craft projects with Jessie and the subsequent cleanup led me to these aprons by Milalu and gloves by La Doux - The  girl's gotta have it!








And check out this Whimsical House I found at Trendir Modern House Designs:







I'm ready to move in now! Wow! Do click on the link to see all the photos from this amazing house!


Phew! I feel much more whimsical already.
