A Daydream

One day I will live on the edge of a market town.  My house will be near enough to civilisation but far enough for isolation.  The house will have enough rooms to accommodate all of my interests.  I will have an art studio, a craft room, a pantry with shelves laden with all types of home made preserves, an apothecary full of lotions, potions and tinctures to both heal and delight.  There will be a library full of books and enough spare rooms for friends and family to stay.

In the garden flocks of chickens and pekins will be able to roam free in a fox-proofed area.  There will be a large vegetable patch and flowers will seed themselves liberally.  Rose arbours will line pathways and a wildlife pond will be home to all kinds of creatures.  At the bottom of the garden is a woodland with a stream running through.  

A squashy-faced lap cat or two will keep my chair warm and I will sell my home made wares across the Internet to my bloggy friends.  Nothing but a dream.  A wonderful, inspiring and hopeful dream..............

The giveaway winner from my last post is.............Rosie from Corners of my Mind.  Rosie could you please email me your details and I will get a surprise package sent off to you.

I hope it's a semi-detached, so I can move in the other side! Yes, I too would love a pantry, a garden full of vegetables and dahlias, and a lap cat! Oh yes, and something you don't list, a large vestibule, big enough for a six-foot Christmas tree! I really don't think we're asking for much?

Congratulations to Rosie, a deserved winner of your giveaway. x

That's my dream house too ... I've always wanted a craft studio and a pantry. My husband would like a room of his own to fill with his books about climbing and maps. Our house will be in the Lake District, close to Grasmere and there will be a lake nearby for Inca to swim in every day!
As you say it's nothing but a dream, but wouldn't it be lovely if all our dreams came true!

I like the soft new look of your blog, Simone. Goes well with your dream. The hyacinths have obviously inspired these pleasant thoughts.

That's a pretty perfect dream - I'd move in! I'd want to add one thing tho' - it must have log fires. Juliex

Diane said...

i love your dream :o)

am so happy Rosie won the giveaway too, she has a lovely blog.

the thing with dreams is that they inspire us to make little dreamy changes in our lives. like buying or making a special lotion that makes us feel good and smell heavenly or enjoying a pot of jam with warm homemade scones and arranging a jug of daffodils to grace the table.

wishing you a lovely month of february, full of dream whispers.

warmest hugs

Judy Hartman said...
