Reclaiming my whimsy.....

I was looking around my room the other day, and I thought
"why in the world are all of my doors white?"

I am in the process of reclaiming my whimsy.

I am an artist at heart and for months I have been feeling stagnant.
I have been doing the mundane things that we need to do to keep life going, to keep the household functioning.
laundry, dishes, chauffeuring, cleaning,
the list goes on and on.
(Like any of you don't already know that...)

I don't even mind doing those things. Especially with some good music in the back ground.
BUT... My magic is fading. I use to be fun and whimsical.
Lately I have been finding myself becoming
so
so
practical.
Not that there is anything wrong with practical. In fact I totally plan to hang onto some of
this new practical me!! It's really handy!
The part that troubles me is that my light seemed to be fading.
The pixie dust is wearing off of my wings...
the red is draining from my hair...
the paint has dried on all of my brushes...
the caffeine is gone from my diet coke!!!

You catch my drift.

SO... I am reclaiming my whimsy!!!!!

I am starting with baby steps, but my first project is my closet door. I have just finished painting it
Martha Stewarts 'Tidewater'.
It is my new favorite. I now have 4 frames and a bedside table recently painted 'Tidewater'.
(I have never believed in overkill. :) )


So here is where you come in...

Please vote on a door knob.



Choice 1


Choice 2



Choice 3


A decorative door knob for my colored closet door.

I think it is the necessary first step to re-whimsy-fying.
I know it's not practical...
but...
that's kind of the point.
