The older I get, the more I crave a little whimsy in my life. You know I love a pretty house. But over time, as I’ve really thought about the purpose of our home :: I want to enjoy it, have it reflect our family’s personality and be a place of connection. I’ve realized there are a few things that make me and others at ease.
Those two things are imperfection and whimsy.
My husband rented a disco ball for a New Year’s Eve thing last month and I saw it in the car and naturally brought it in for a photo shoot, suddenly purchasing a disco ball is at the top of my list. Nothing says “Don’t take me too seriously” like having a disco ball in one’s home. I’m on the prowl for one. Anyone know of a good disco ball store? Disco Balls R Us?
The second project on my mind right now is painting a cuckoo clock. I love the mix of traditional meets whimsical. I don’t have the clock yet but I’ve been researching and I think it would be a fun addition to our home. I need to stop by Cuckoo Clocks R Us as well.
I’ve found that some cuckoo clocks let you have a choice of if you want to turn the cuckoo off. I’m guessing that’s probably a good idea. I don’t to have to get up in the middle of the night with an axe and chop my clock into tiny pieces.
What’s the most whimsical, light-hearted, quirky thing in your home?
Have you ever purposely purchased something because of its quirkyness?
Am I weird?
