frolic

The word for this week's Every Inchie Monday challenge is frolic. According to The Free Dictionary the definition of frolic is
n.
1. Gaiety; merriment: fun and frolic.
2. A gay, carefree time.
3. A playful antic.
intr.v. frol·ickedfrol·ick·ingfrol·ics
1. To behave playfully and uninhibitedly; romp.
2. To engage in merrymaking, joking, or teasing.
adj. Archaic Merry.
My original intention was to make this inchie out of fiber but instead I ended up using a copy of Victorian scrap mounted on a paint chip and embellished with bits of lace. This copyright free image is from Penny Plain Scraps.

How sweet it is, like a little theater--
I have not made my inchies the last 3 weeks- so many other things, that came up...I will try do do this weeks,though.

I love this - it reminds me of the illustrations of a lot of the books I read when I was very young; where the characters really did frolic.

This is great - an old fashioned frolic.

I do see "frolic" in this one-- colorful and spring-like which we dearly need with all this cold weather.

Frolic is sort of an old fashioned word isn't it, and this inchie certainly fill the bill beautifully. xox Corrine
