Whim-si-cal: Playfully quaint or fanciful, especially in an appealing and amusing way. 

When I think whimsical, I think of that unusual piece of home decor that everyone looks at and can’t help but comment because…well, it’s unusual. Or my favorite mythical creatures: mermaids and unicorns. I think whimsical would be a great theme for an art journal. What do your think?

What do you picture when you picture whimsical?
