Originally I cut out some cute little butterflies from heavy weight gift wrap that had a floral theme to it. This was way before the days of scrapbooking, so I didn't have the choices we have today. I stuck the butterflies up right on my window in my sewing room for a cute and whimsical feel.
And even though I'm probably far too old to have cutesy flowers and butterflies hanging on my walls....I still do. (I don't share my house with anyone else, so I can get as girly as I want~)
I just cut out three sizes of a basic flower shape in origami paper, put some blue sticky poster gunk on the back, and stuck them up on a skinny little wall right by my closet. They make me smile in the mornings when I'm trying to figure out what on earth I'm going to wear each day.
What do you think? Are we ever too old for whimsy or is this better left for little girls?
