Whimsical Wednesday

Wednesday, December 6, 2017
I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts this morning, Happier with Gretchen Rubin, and one of their "try this at home" tips was to introduce a note of whimsy, which I just loved.  Gretchen describes a note of whimsy as a "way to poke fun at yourself, lighten a difficult situation, or just make life more lighthearted."

I've always loved fun, whimsical details, so I enjoyed listening to examples of whimsical things in their lives that made them smile. I always try to add a little whimsy and something fun whether it be with decor, outside on the patio or in the garden, or even with an outfit.

Some of my favorite "notes of whimsy" of late - 

My mom sent me this Nutcracker advent card that's so fun. I haven't had an advent calendar in ages and it's brought back so many wonderful memories! It's such a small thing, but it's fun to look forward to opening the next box each morning.

Who else loved advent calendars as a kid? 

This rabbit is actually an Easter decoration (shocking, I know) but I thought he'd look just as good with some pine boughs in his basket as he does with cherry blossoms. And for a note of whimsy, I gave him a little silver scarf. 

Doesn't he look dapper with his winter scarf?

You know the bargain bins that try to lure you in right as you walk into Target? I love those things. I found these cute little bristle brush trees for just $3! This silver one was the perfect little touch of Christmas in our guest bath.

You never know what treasures you'll find in a Target bargain bin!

I spotted this cute little pot in downtown Seattle. It was a cold, gray, raining day and as we were walking along these bright, funky, fun potted plants were such a happy sight. So fun! I had to take a photo. I love all the shapes, colors, and the way it's just a bit "unkempt."

Hope it was a great Wednesday, friends. Wishing you little notes of whimsy this week.
