A bit of whimsy.....

I've been playing around with a little bit of whimsy the last couple of days, and had a wonderfully creative time doing it! Why does inspiration and creativity come so easily and quickly sometimes? At rare moments? When a lot of the time it can take quite some thought and preparation?

This little treasure was one of the easy times. I decided I wanted to do something for my own enjoyment, and not necessarily something I thought I should do to put up on the selling site. Something that someone would want to buy.

So I knew I wanted to do another little bird assemblage. I looked through my stock of boxes and tins, and found this little box with a shelf and a door. Yep that was it! I was off! :)
Unlike my usual MO, I just went where my muse(?) took me. A couple of times I had to fight my restrictive thoughts to stay outside the square, but I managed to do things that I liked the look of and not what I thought others may like.
Yay! Pat on the back for me.
And because I love the way it looks, I'm putting it up in my store to sell, here.


Talking about whimsy......and maybe a little kitch-y........... I found this on one of my forays to local op shops, with Joolz, a few weeks ago and just couldn't resist! lol.
Can you believe that someone, some time ago, took the time to crochet this adorable little gem, little teapot and all!!??
I've filled the pot with some toyfill so it sits up for you to see better. It even has a little lid with a tiny knob! I've no idea where I'll put it or what I can do with it, but I'll think of something. :))

Well after that posting, I couldn't think of a better way to end it than to wish everyone of you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR filled with a heap of whimsy & kitch to keep you smiling all year!
I wish you happiness and hope you find all your dreams fulfilled.

SEE YOU ALL IN 2010!!!!
