A Wee Bit of Thursday Whimsy

 “You must not ever stop being whimsical. And you must not, ever, give anyone else the responsibility for your life.”

 Mary Oliver, Wild Geese 

Whimsy has always been a part of my life.  I refuse to grow up.  In fact, my house is cluttered with whimsical characters, and  I am forever finding little items of whimsy to add to my menagerie.  Since today I seem to be undergoing a wee bit of writer's block, I figured it would be a great time to introduce you to some of my new friends...

Freddie the Frog

It is better for a girl to sleep a hundred years and be kissed and awakened by the right prince than to stay awake and be kissed a hundred times by the wrong frog.
Myrtle the Turtle 

Try to be like the turtle - at ease in your own shell. 
Bill Copeland 

Wherever they may have come from, and wherever they may have gone, unicorns live inside the true believer's heart. Which means that as long as we can dream, there will be unicorns.
Bruce Coville

This is Millie and Marty Mouse.

A mouse never entrusts his life to only one hole. 
Petunia and Peter Pig

 I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.
Winston Churchill

I found all these items in the thrift shop at the Center.  Best part of all was that they only cost me $3.  I enjoy checking out the shop at least once a week.  Never know when I will find a real treasure.

Have a great Tuesday everyone.


  1. I too like to peruse the Senior Center shop so I know that happy feeling you felt with your purchases. . :0)

  2. I love them all! :). Especially Myrtle Turtle. I have a profound fondness for turtles. Not sure where it comes from...
