I’m Dreaming About…

July 13, 2010

New shoes.  I’m always dreaming about new shoes.

I should do something more with my hair than a ponytail everyday.

[ I tried this a few days ago and really liked it, and I miss my pink hair. ]

A typewriter cake, in pink of course, for my next birthday.  Or unbirthday.

[ This cake from Paula’s Cakes ]

New pillows for my couch.  I am in desperate need.

[ I like  this cute little embroidered bird pillow ]

Actually, I’d like to tear my whole house apart and start over.  Throw pillows will help tide me over.  But what I really want is  a complete overhaul with brighter colors and a much more eclectic look.  Dark gray and orange, turquoise and lemon yellow and green.  And a little pink. Crisp white trim.  Vintagey/Modern furniture and dark wood floors.  Really funky cool chairs and lamps and art on the walls.  Obviously this is a far away from right now dream.  But I’ll just keep looking.

But what I really want most, more than any of that?  What I really want is a beautiful old house with a detached garage and a backyard and a garden.  With walls 14 inches thick, made of adobe.  One with all the original woodwork inside, and built in cabinets everywhere you look.  With a fireplace and huge windows everywhere.  With skeleton keys that open all the original doorknobs.  And quirky curvy stairs, and awful plumbing and wiring.  And terrible shag carpet, but there is probably hardwood under there somewhere.  And with a little love it would be absolutely perfect.  And I used to live here, in my perfect house, but gave it up for homeownership.  And I miss it.  I love this house.

That’s what I really dream about.

    You always have the bestest, inspiring collection of photos, but I LOVE your hairdo this time (and I can still see a wee bit of pink in there). I can’t imagine how you managed to do both sides and then ponytail them together with only 2 hands. Did Creamie help you? Is that how you did it? Get more pink hair…that’s easy.

    I want all those things, too. Except for the cake. Fondant makes me want to barf, but it is so pretty to look at. I really want the Apartment Therapy space. I think I can make that happen in one of my guest rooms. BTW, I just scored 9 sheets at a Houston Goodwill with my Grandma. She’s my new good luck charm. Found a piece of pyrex for you, but I passed on it because it was a white bowl with harvest gold and brown design on it. Had it been a decent looking color, I would have picked it up for you.

    Oh my goodness gracious me, where on Earth do you get all your energy from?
    You, and all these beautiful and creative things that you do are incredible.

    That bedroom is beautiful. I absolutely love it!! I would never put picture frames (or anything) above my bed but if I could I’d definitely do this!

    I am starting a new sew along if you are interested!
