Sigh... so pretty & calm, isn't? Well, It's a good thing you can't see the rest or you'll faint to the sight of my big mess πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ. {The mess chases me I tell ya 😝} . I’ve shared on my Stories magical captures from @poppyloveyou , @jeantinem & @elvirasstory; go on, delight yourself, show them some looooove ;)

My cupboards for petals. Yup, that's right. Every time I need a cup, I need to empty it first; as they ALL are filled with dried petals! Petals literally took over my fancy cups πŸ˜‚ It's a good thing they are mostly used for photos though. Now, where should they take over next? πŸ€” Any ideas are welcome 😁🌸 . Happy Friday friends!xx
What can I say. When I posted my last picture I thought I was welcoming many new friends that came after the previous post. Never in a million yrs thought @Instagram would feature me that day later. ✨ I'm still dancing on a fairy-dust-cloud today! ✨ So here is to all of you, because without you there wouldn't be a reason for me to exist here. You make it the special place this is, THANK YOU! *Throws pink blossom confetti* into an Alice in Wonderland inspired scene to celebrate πŸ˜‰πŸ€—πŸŽ‰ . #asecondofwhimsey
Special 'Hi' to all of you that just found your way to my little "fairytales", are you one of them? πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘‹πŸΌ . . Today let's dream about walking in the woods and suddenly finding a woodsy-whimsical-gem-of-a-cottage looking like this. Warm fire lit inside & the aroma of a freshly baked pie seducing us to go inside ...Okay, I just realized that might sound like a trap! Run Forest, run! πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚πŸ¦Š . I’ve shared on my Stories magical captures from @efimoshka, @thecafecat & @gingerlillytea; go on, delight yourself, show them some love ;) . Happy Monday you all!x
Collecting butterflies... πŸ¦‹βœ¨ Home is the place where my 'faffing' corner seats next to a window, a special place I didn't even had before Instagram, but oh boy; am I glad I have now ☺️. Someone else with a special corner in their home? You know, that place you must always have to 'slow down' & maybe take a picture or two πŸ˜‰. . #WHPhomesweethome #asecondofwhimsey
When you steal all the flowers around you. Shhh...πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆ { Kidding. I didn't actually stole these, but hey that could have been easily me! πŸ˜‚}. Spring just asks for little snippets to be collected here and there, isn't? πŸ˜‰πŸŒΏ 🌸 Happy weekend friends!x . #asecondofwhimsey #rosenthalflowerupyourlife #hurrayforplay
Ahem. Hi dears! πŸ‘‹πŸΌ Lovely Eli @dy_ellie says I must write #20thingsaboutme {okay, she asked politely πŸ˜†} now.... thinking, thinking, thinking πŸ€”πŸ˜‘πŸ˜… . 1. I always take the most odd self portraits, I'm working on that. Hence this photo πŸ™ˆ 2. I smile like 'the kid' version of me, according to my mom that is. Always showing my teeth 😁 3. I was born in Guatemala City {AKA as The Land of Eternal Spring }. 4. Moved to Pennsylvania 4yrs ago. After I got married. 5. I met my American husband at colleague. 6. The first time he talked to me was only because his friend said "hey, let's go talk to those girls". πŸ™Š 7. We got married at the beach, with sand in our toes & the sunset kissing our skin. 8. Whenever people ask me what do I do, I just say I'm a Graphic Designer. 9. I have the need to hide the fact I have a Bachelor's in Advertising & a Master's D. In Digital Design. Worked as a Head of a Web Design & Multimedia Agency for yrs. Even after I moved here, I did it remotely. 10. I realized a year ago my passion is creating things with my hands. 11. I love making things for others as I think of it as a way to 'ignite circles of happiness'. 12. I'm becoming an Entrepreneur, working on having my online Design Shop, selling handmade goods. 13. I'm a self taught photographer (who's with me? πŸ™‹πŸ»). 14. 99.9% of the pics I share here I've made them all by myself; using a timer, a camera remote control & tripod. I shoot in manual mode. 15. I'm an introvert. Most of the time. 16. Husband, mom & my sister are my best friends. 17. Doughnuts 🍩 are my weakness. 18. If you want me to get chatty, give me a lollipop 🍭 { Sugar is my "alcohol" 🀣 }. 19. I'm working hard at making Jesus the center of my life. 20. There was a Caterpillar πŸ› on the wreath I'm wearing. About to be discovered 5min later after I took this pic πŸ˜‚ (can't believe I didn't notice 'him' when I made the wreath!) . A star ⭐️ in the forehead for you, if you managed to read ALL this!

Join in @red_sh0es, @poly_s, @me_and_orla, @Posyandpetal, @oyeblikk , @mangelka , @lillalivetandme , @helena.moore & anyone that would like to participate? I want to tag everyone πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚
"Let's reach for the pink clouds", those were her thoughts as she stood on her tiptoes reaching the fluffy pink goodness above her head πŸ˜‰πŸŒΈ . It's Monday's of Whimsey & Light on my Stories, with magical: @aclotheshorse , @me_and_orla & @hannah.straughan; go on, take a peek ;) . #asecondofwhimsey
I might not have it all figured out in this adventurous journey of building my tiny business, but what I do know is that it will be filled with lots of Whimsey & Light πŸ€—βœ¨ Here is to #WHPdreambig ! Are you cooking up a special dream for this year? Would love to know so we can cheer each other on πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ˜™πŸ’•
Come, the mirror said, you'll be the queen of The Land of Eternal Spring... ✨ . { Hihi πŸ™ˆπŸ˜ } From the corner of my eye I could see and old man with his dog, he stood away peeking, watching with a warm smile on his face while me & husband where making this pic... I felt happy we made an stranger smile that day. Did you know I've dreamed with making photos like this for years? I still have a long way to go, but if I'm sure of something is that I want to keep the whimsy alive to make people smile ☺️. Happy weekend dears!x . #asecondofwhimsey
Give me a branch with blooms that fall off as soon as you pick it up and you'll see me practicing this face -> πŸ˜‘ { Ahem. By no means that's exactly what happened here, no way πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚}. Why do Cherry Blossoms have to be so fragile?! I wish they stayed put longer! ☺️ . Happy Friday lovelies!x . #asecondofwhimsey #inspiredbypetals #simplenaturefinds
'Mirror mirror on the wall, does Spring is coming around?' -I'm thinking you know what the answer was πŸ˜πŸŒ·πŸ’• Happy 1st of May! . Also it's Monday's of Whimsey & Light on my Stories, with magical captures from: @monalogue, @kirstylarmour & @thegelfis; in case you'd like to take a peek ;) . #hellomay #asecondofwhimsey
Drip drop. The rain kept taping the window next to her; there was something comforting about taking it slow on rainy days...😌 . It's been gloomy for days here and I can't seem to get enough work done because of it. I picture myself as a 🐌 on these kind of days, not because of the sliminess of course! πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚. Hope your day is going 'faster' than mine ;) . #itsamoodywednesday
Ahem. 'Don't look this way but someone is spying on you' πŸ‘€πŸ•΅πŸ»β€β™€οΈ. Said one Cherry Blossom tree to another, as an overly enthusiastic lady-with-a-camera kept spying on them {Me! in case you are wondering }. It was a total success! πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ . Also it's Monday's of Whimsey & Light on my Stories, with magical: @Helena.moore, @l_maita & @house_of_douglas; in case you'd like to take a peek ;) . Happy Monday friends!x #asecondofwhimsey
Have you taken a picture and post it 2yrs later? Please say yes so I won't feel all alone here. This is exactly what happened with this photo! πŸ˜… As soon as I saw it though, all the memories came rushing back; me moving that little table with the enormous jar (hey, it is big for the pocket-size me! πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚) before the shadow disappeared. They can be quite flickering if you ask me. Uh-huh πŸ€”πŸ˜Š . Anyway, happy Friday friends! x . #asecondofwhimsey
'This one!' she exclaimed with joy in her voice, as she had just found the perfect fluffy Dandelion πŸ€— ✨🌳✨ {Lets pretend the tree is white and we have a Dandelion emoticon; how come there is not one?! πŸ˜…}. . #asecondofwhimsey
'My boss has a Cherry tree', said husband making me stop whatever musings I was doing. 'Do you think he would let me have a branch', I asked with huge stars in my eyes. Guess what he replied? ✨🌸😁🌸 ✨ (That emoticon is me today πŸ˜‚). Happy Monday friends.x . Oh, I shared my 'Monday's of Whimsey & Light' on Stories; in case you'd like to take a peek ;) . #asecondofwhimsey
Magic fail. You know, my kind of magic is... well, just me working really hard behind the scenes πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚. So I tried making my magic happen by painting some eggs but turns out it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. Opening the micro-tiny holes and then 'blowing' to take out the egg just made me realize how weak my lungs are. Husband had to help me out! So here is a photo with THE one egg I made on this fine morning πŸ˜†πŸ₯šβœ¨ . #HappyEaster friends, may you all have a blessed day! x
