"Susan", "Susan","Susan"... huh?! Is there someone calling my name from there? 😲 It is, isn't. I'm pretty sure it means I must go and explore what's on the other side of this enchanting entrance πŸ€” Yup, that's pretty much what ALL doors with pretty ivy walls say to me πŸ˜œπŸπŸƒ . Rise your hand if you get those calls too! πŸ˜† . #asecondofwhimsey
Secretly inside my heart I've been working on giving room in my life for other things to grow; a little less Instagram, a little more so many other things πŸ˜‰πŸƒ Now if I could just find a way to "unstick" this phone of mine from my hands, that'll be great πŸ€” β€”Hey, little by little is better than nothing! πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ . Happy new week friends! . #asecondofwhimsey
"Dear old world', she murmured, 'you are very lovely, and I'm glad to be alive in you" –Anne of Green Gables. . The product of some of my favorite sources of inspiration: Anne and Shoujo Japanese Anime πŸ˜‰πŸƒβœ¨ . #asecondofwhimsey
Rise & Shine 🌻✨ Does someone around here speak 'bird'? I've been trying to explain to the ones singing outside my window on Sunday's we are suppose to sleep late πŸ€”πŸ¦ –I still love their morning songs though, from Monday to Friday that is! πŸ˜‚ . Here is to my ability to tell a story out of my "misery", yup yup πŸ˜†βœŒπŸΌ Happy Sunday friends! . #asecondofwhimsey
Memories of a slow summer day... πŸƒ tiptoeing around the room she put on her soft pink cardigan and off she run with her pj's still on... "I'll make some photos before everyone wakes up!"; those were her thoughts 😁 -Hi hi- Guess who 'she' was? πŸ™Š Now that I think about it I'm glad husband is a heavy sleeper! πŸ€”πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ . #asecondofwhimsey
Trapped in my own little self-made world...πŸƒLet's just say about a month ago I wasn't feeling very happy with IG and making a photo –this one- was my way to express my discontent {*cough cough* throw a tantrum I mean πŸ™ˆ} and get back to it πŸ˜‚. Hey, don't we all have our days with Instagram after all?! 😁 . Let's make this a good week friends!x . #creativehappylife
Sunbeams and summer drinks 😌🍹🌿Half & Half iced tea-lemonade seems to be my go-to drink these summer days, when I'm not drinking water that is; plain water still seems to win every time though β€”my laziness overtakes me! πŸ€”πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ What's yours? . #asecondofwhimsey
How's your Monday going? Mine has been all about gathering & drafting ideas for what will be... *drums sound* my official 1st line of handmade products! Yaaaay! πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸΌ β€”Please wish me luck as I definitely need it, I'm so nervous and exited ALL at the same time πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ . #WHPISpyEmojis πŸ’Œ
She chased the light with each beating of her heart; that's what made her feel alive...😌🌿✨ β€”Some of you saw me taking this photo, I made it on my first ever Live video! πŸ™Š Have you made a Live video here yet? scary stuff if you ask me πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ . Ps. I am obsessed with this 'Pixie Dust' effect, I want to put it everywhere! 😁 . #freeupmyinsta
Bed time stories... πŸ€” I've tried to read one of my biggest sources of inspiration for 5 weeks now. Five! I always get busy tinkering with something that fail to carve out time to read πŸ™ˆ So I just decided to make a picture to at least tell this tale πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ β€”How do you guys do it?! . #asecondofwhimsey
β€œAt the end of the day your feet should be dirty, your hair messy and your eyes sparkling”. - Shanti β€” I have to tell you, before instagram, before I started to take pictures I would have never done so many things that I’ve done now. Walking barefoot to feel the dirt under my feet wasn't precisely on my pocket list, since I grew up in a city my mom was always against me walking around without shoes. It was a no-no. Because you know, it's dirty and there is bugs in there. So when I did this photo, some how it felt liberating. It was soft, it was warm, it was like standing on sand without any pieces of broken shells poking your feet. Oh, the things I'll do to make a photo now –to communicate a feeling–, all those experiences are now imprinted in my heart and I wouldn’t want it any other way...😊 Who's with me? . #asecondofwhimsey
You know how sometimes one can come up with what one thinks is a brilliant idea just to realize later that it resembles someone else's genius way too much?! Yes? No? β€”Because this is exactly what happened to me with this Boomerang, didn't even realize until it was finished πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ™„ Yikes! Oh well, at least the butterfly is entirely handmade by me, watercolor, gold foil and all πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ¨πŸŽ¨. I'll count that as a win! πŸ˜…πŸ¦‹ . #asecondofwhimsey
What's something quirky about you? *whispers* most of my quirkiness is shown when I am happy & relaxed, I'll often hum a made up song! πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚. β€” I've been working on the brand for my tiny business for a while now and by this I don't mean a logo but something more deep, It's a feeling, it's a thought. We all have our quirks and trates that make us who we are, building a brand for my business has been about to embrace them all and translate them into a unique story I want people to perceive. So this is me, getting out of my own box. Owning WHO I AM. I'm quirky and I'm embracing it all 😊✌🏼 . Happy weekend friends!x . #asecondofwhimsey
I see P E O N I E S... like everywhere. Young and young at heart seem to love them πŸ™Š So I've decided I'm going be making fine art whimsical prints with them, yup yup. A logical conclusion, won't you agree? πŸ˜† Wish me luck please, lots of work involved in world domination πŸ€”πŸ’°πŸ˜‚ . #asecondofwhimsey #freeupmyinsta
Sunshiny days are and always will be my favorite...😌 when the sun peeks in and the birds sing their song right outside my window ---like literally; there is a tree right next to my bedroom window and they decided to make their house there 😏 Who needs an alarm clock playing a bird song if you've got the real thing, right right?! πŸ¦πŸ˜‚ . Happy almost Friday friends! I thought today was yesterday 😳x . #asecondofwhimsey
Remember my Peonies that never bloomed? This is how they looked like before, about a year ago, when I made this photo for my tiny project #lazysummerchair... { one that by the way, I forgot all about }. Yup, I'm perpetually late, even for posting pictures πŸ™„ anyone has practical tips for getting on time to... everywhere? I could really use one, or two, okay maybe three πŸ™ˆπŸ˜… . #asecondofwhimsey
To go out or to finish my coffee, that is the question πŸ€” When the sun is shining brightly outside and the impatience of running out to the pool kicks in. Almost forgot that without coffee can't function properly anyway, so coffee it's πŸ˜†βœŒπŸΌ #β˜•οΈ . Happy summery Sunday friends!x . #asecondofwhimsey
Down the rabbit hole...πŸ°πŸ¦‹πŸƒ I've been going through some old files, like this one from 2013 (!) Seems like the fairytlish has been part of me even before I even noticed myself. Funny how things work, huh πŸ€” {Sometimes I don't see things until they practically hit me in the face πŸ™ˆ}. Also, can you believe I made this photo on a graveyard?! πŸ˜†πŸ™Š . #whimsicalwonderfulwild
Hours seem to just fade away when I'm with 'her', just me and my camera. Playing with light & finding buried treasures meant to be discovered only through a camera lens. Can you believe I even forget to eat because I get all caught up into making photos?! Wish I could blame on that the extra pounds I've gained instead of all that cake πŸ€”πŸ˜… . | Glorious camera scarf-strap by @bloomtheory ✨|
Did I mention I store my dried petals on cups? I've been thinking on making them into a lazy type of 'popurrΓ­'; you know, spray on some lavender scent and call it a day, what do you all think, would it work? πŸ€”πŸ™ˆπŸ˜… . Also, thanks to @me_and_orla's Podcast I learned we own the #cupsinframe movement to Julia from @Humphreyandgrace 😡 -I had no idea! So here is to honor her and the 'why' she started to do it in the 1st place...πŸ˜™πŸ’• .
