New Finds in Whimsy and Instant gratification

 Sometimes we come across a lot of silly things. Recently I came across a huge bag of children's
plastic glasses with noses and these particular ones had mustaches and eyebrows!
For a few weeks we enjoyed handing these out to kids and they LOVED getting something free!
 It is amazing how utilitarian things such as hangers are indeed works of art. Imagine the time it took to crochet a hanger. I think they are so lovely.
 Both the shops are loaded with suitcases and we still love stacking them up
and repurposing them for all kinds of creative uses.
 Laurinda has a fan club and as soon as she brings in a fresh load, it vanishes within days!
Her creativity and themes are so inspiring and we all enjoy her displays.
 Another creative genius is Heidi and her space at Whimsy on 7th is filled to the brim
with creativity and recycled denim marvels! From lamp shades to wallets, Heidi is certainly the QUEEN of DENIM!
 A very popular item at Whimsy are the wine barrel peace signs and wine barrel hearts.
Come check them out--they are great wall art indoors or out on the patio.
 Gale has an amazing collection of vintage prom gowns! Prom season (or maybe a Spring party)
is almost here so come check ou the super selection of vintage happiness!
 So many vintage treasures await your scoping in Gales spaces at both Whimsy locations!
 A fantastic vintage sideboard is currently at Whimsy on Linden.
 We have been bringing in lots of pastels for Spring and there is a great new Vintage garden space absolutely filled with pastels to warm up your Spring decor--inside and out!

 Love the vintage sail at Whimsy on 7th Street!
 Like I said before, Heidi is a whiz with the denim creations and you will want to grab some of these precious denim bunnies for Easter and Spring decorating!
It has been too long since I posted on our blog, and I have a new obsession and I am hoping you will
want to join in the fun!
It is called Instagram and honestly, it is INSTANT gratification.  I snap a pic with my phone and
put images on Instagram and Facebook. If you want daily glimpses into the shops and the latest finds, as well as pretty places I find and even my home--- take a peek or follow our Instagram:
Hope to see you soon in Whimsy!
