Live What You Love

After a few months of a big advertising campaign locally using of one of Whimsy faves-
"Live what you Love"
in our ads, we did a simple window to honor our ads.
Simply stated, it was whites, woods and nuetrals.
I found a great antiques poster out there in blogland and made a timepiece poster to honor
the saying which you can see in these pics.
The time to buy antiques is when you see them.
I guess people got the messages we were quietly trying to convey, and soon
things from the display vanished pretty quickly.
I hope you are spending your time on this great planet and surrounding
yourself with treasures that "speak" to you.
I look around at my home, and even though many of my vases have chips,everything seems less than perfect, and my treasures are estate and flea market finds, I honestly love everything I live with. I am living what I love--my vignettes makes me happy to look at and
bring a special feeling of contentment.
Visit Whimsy soon and pick up a few amazing pieces that will help you enjoy your space.

Vintage Junkin' in the Desert!

Over the holidays, we took a drive out to the desert and one stunning
day, drove over to Joshua Tree. Of course we had to hit a few shops and my next
few posts will include some visuals that were rather appealing to me!
What do you think of this artists work? He collected junk and painted, sanded, painted, sanded
and repeated his process and I assume some other magic and created what I
found absolutely stunning!

His use of color and form were beyond words!
The pic below is the back of an old motel chair!

Who knew a stack of film cases and box springs could be so exciting?
They awed me.
Love the colors and my shadow stayed in that spot for way too long!
Everywhere I looked I found something equally pleasing to my senses.

The interiors were just as thrilling.

In Palm Desert, there was a nifty place that I need to go back to ...
called Ace!
Stay tuned for more adventures on our short trip soon!
You know I brought some awesome treasures back
for Whimsy!
Stop in soon and see what we found!
