In My Dream ...

Ancient shutters with the most lovely patina would flank my windows ...


In my dream, I would have a cupboard overflowing with gorgeous vintage linens embroidered by hand...





Antique crystal chandeliers would hang from my ceiling, throwing a confetti of colorful light when the sun danced across its faceted surfaces -- chiming gently as the sea air exhaled into the room.




My kitchen would be home to antique oyster plates and treasures of silver ...



The beautiful linens would grace hand-carved beds, upholstered in the finest fabrics, washed in the softest of whites...




Lavender would perfume the air ...



Ornate mirrors would bounce light around the rooms ...

across the plethora of time-worn pieces begging to tell their history

... and I would happily listen.

I have discovered one thing we bloggers all have in common....The love of all things French. What a wonderful subject to have in common.

I'm ready to go, Vicki! :) I just think I'd never come back...

Artikins, when the GH is finished, you can come live here! We'll put a kiddy pool in the back and make PF and Royal Sonshine wear merman suits and it'll have to serve as merman island for now ... maybe if Dubai goes under, they will sell it for cheap and that can be the future mm island... hee

Perhaps this exists for you somewhere. Not only in dreams. One never knows.

A lovely dream indeed-- and I'd be happy to visit with all of the time-worn pieces and listen to them tell their history!
