Quirky Is Good

I’ve started a collection of sorts — pretty much by accident. A couple summers ago I picked up this painting at 2nd Saturdayz Market in Seattle on a whim. There was just something light hearted and happy and quirky about this guy that compelled me to bring him home.

I included him in the gallery composition that I’m slowly compiling in my entryway. He’s mixed in with old family photos, Owen’s Mona Lisa and other pieces of artwork. 
See? There he is down in the corner.

Well, this past weekend, I was again at 2nd Saturdayz. Lo and behold, I found this little gem.

So, of course, I HAD to bring her home. She looks like a Margaret, I think. I will add her to the ever growing mix in the entryway (as much as my mom disapproves) because I think they can’t help but make you smile. Whether you’re coming to or leaving my house, I hope everyone does so with a smile.

What about you? What collections do you have that are a bit on the quirky side? What in your home makes you smile?
