It's all about the Whimsy!



I am huge fan of whimsy. I think that the world gets too serious sometimes. Yes it is good to take responsibility and be accountable. It is also important to be silly, have fun, and engage the magical feelings revealed through whimsy.

http://www.eleganceandwhimsy.com/ This link is your ticket to a magical shopping spectacle . It is over the top! I was delighted the minute I saw this site. It really raised the bar for me. I had so much fun. I felt like a little girl who still believed in fairy princesses and knights in shinning amour. Women view shopping as entertainment. This web site is a delicious on line magazine . The products are feminine and fantasy oriented. The presentation is dazzling and more fun than anything I have seen so far. I was completely entertained.

This is a close up from a full size wreathe filled with elegant treasures and a touch of humor for the Marie Antoinette fans.
You have to go see Marie and Louis. They gave me a giggle.

Now I must be honest, I have never understood the whole faux desert thing. Desert as decor eludes me. I want to eat them! These made me a fan for sure. I can think of a million things I could decorate with these little bon bons.

I remember a package I received as a 5 year old. It had some little pink butterfly's like this one on it. Now that was 46 years ago and still remember how captivated I was by those sweet little butterflies. They are vivid in my minds eye.
This site has a zillion darling memories waiting to be made. Dozens of moments filled with lush eye candy!






I'm showing you little snips of my favorite items but go have a whimsical fantastical moment or two and check it out for yourself.http://www.eleganceandwhimsy.com/
