In Need of Some Whimsy

I feel that in light of all that is going on in the world right now, along with a certain collective sad 6th anniversary that is today, and another 10th one soon approaching, I should, (artistically) be doing something somber and meaningful, (which I have in the past) but right now, for the sake of my mental health, (which in all truth easily slips into sadness) I am in need of a little whimsy... and I feel guilty needing it, but need it I do, and I am heeding that need.

If you too, are in need of a smile, then I hope these help...

So cool! I'd like to find one of those houses on a rock and just park myself for awhile. I think the view would be gorgeous!

Being happy (content) in spite of situations of sadness is sometimes the most deep and meaningful thing we can do.
I really like your houses.

How cute, they most certainly make me smile.
And how strange, I just posted a post abbut making smiles on my blog before I popped over to yours. The world must be in need of more smiles...

These made me smile, too. They are clever and naif at the same time.

Ethne said...

Super cool, certainly whimsical ;0)

So cute! They definitely made me smile. We all benefit from smiles and whimsy - especially in the hard times.

Victoria Bennett Beyer said...

I love these! They are too cute.

I agree...there is a time for somber reflection, but you have to do what you have to do to keep it from overshadowing everything else. If that means cute little houses, well then, let there be cute little houses!

vic, i love the little green camper, they are all wonderful! they are, indeed, very happy!

Cheryl Arkison said...

Whimsy is definitely required these days. Take and make it all!

Marty's Fiber Musings said...

I want to live in one of your houses....I'd be smiling all the time! Darling little pick-me-ups!

Diane J. Evans said...

Oh, yes, I definitely needed that today, especially now that Irene has left the East Coast and wreaked havoc everywhere she went. Thank you for the whimsy -- and the smiles it brought. These pieces are delicious!

Smiling, smiling. Whimsy indeed. xox Corrine

Charming houses! I think you have the right attitude, too. Life has to go on, and "being happy" does not constitute an act of disrespect towards those who have lost so much! I just can't believe it's a zero sum game. So don't feel guilty about needing whimsy AND don't forget what is going on in the world... both are possible, I think!

Rachel Hauser said...

Yes, this is just what we need! Those pretty little window curtains - such a nice touch. Thanks =)

patty a. said...

These are so darn cute! Who says marking an occasion has to be somber? Kick up you heels and go crazy!

bloomingpoppies said...

Oh Victoria, these are so great!! I especially love the green camper. Thanks for putting an extra smile on my face today. Hope you feel some whimsy today and have a smile or two yourself. :-)
