It’s a Whimsical Life

It's a Whimsical Life

I haven’t really ventured into the world of showing you artwork, I hate the idea of showing one artist but not others, but this was just so sweet I had to share. I love whimsical art, especially involving cute little animals. I know, it isn’t exactly in keeping with my British Colonial house, but what is living if it doesn’t involve a little whimsy here and there?!

This sweet print just totally captured what I love in this sort genre of art, and I wanted to spread my joy! I think I bought the last one (sorry!), but she has others that are just as adorable. I love what she says about this piece:

Every Saturday morning come rain or shine, little Alphonse would be there, waiting for the Fromagerie to open.

I am smitten by the Frenchness of it!
