I love a little whimsy in life...something that just brings a smile to your face. I LOVE whimsy in decorating- the unexpected little things that surprise you, make you smile, and make you look for more! In our home there are many whimsical pieces hidden about. My daughter and I were experimenting with painting "Man in the Moon" faces on old softballs- I added a funnel tin hat on one she did and placed him on a silverplate stand. I added a bingo ball and he now resides on a shelf in the kitchen- makes me smile everytime I look at him! I also have some sweet old chalkware dolls-I always imagine the person painting these vintage craft projects. I put a paper umbrella in one doll's hand, for instant fun! Dog collectibles are whimsical without trying...I have some cute dog chalkware tucked in and about, and the little dog calendar is one I found that had the month and year of my husband's birth right on the front! I love old portraits- we have a large 20 x 26 hand colored old photo of a boy and his dog as you walk in our home. It is so charming and everyone wants to know who he is- it has started many stories as you wonder who he was and what his life was like... There's also have a sweet baby portrait, that I hang in the winter- the baby is dressed so cute for the cold! Whimsical vintage clocks- working or not- in unexpected places are fun. Its the little details that make a house a home, and make it yours! I'd love to hear about whimsy in your home! Linda
