Closet Dreaming

Closet Dreams

Closets, dream closets, yes I know I just moved into a new house. But really, a girl can dream. I wanted a walk in closet and I did get one. It is small and I didn't get the built ins I wanted. But now I can plan for hubby to build for me. So, I took a little dream trip. 

Of course, I have to start with our girl Carrie. The dream closet of my dreams.

"Old Town" Sausalito, CA transitional-closetOf course, this closet would be my choice.   All white, calm and leading to a beautiful bathroom. My closet is not as large but I am loving it. A place for purses, hats and art!

I have my scarves ready at the front and clothes in sections. Where is hubby's?
Oh here they are!
What I love the most is its right in the beautiful bedroom.

I may not have the biggest closet but a girl can dream. Hope you week is great. What are your closet dreams. Di

Come visit Saluda

Come visit Saluda, NC. It's a small town but full of charm
The Main Street is awesome and the Pace Store is over 100 years old
Love the charm of these screen doors

Our 41st wedding Anniversary started in Saluda with lunch
A walk around town to view the pretty buildings and plants

On the way back home we stopped at Burntshirt Vineyards
I loved the repurposed wine bottles
We brought several bottles back to start our bottle art
It was so relaxing to sit outside and enjoy the breeze
The colors and view was amazing
Cute little out building
Loved the water barrel crows
And the day with my honey was wonderful
Hope your week is great, Di

Lake walking

A busy Sunday is wonderfully exhausting. I have my family, almost all, here visiting. My nieces and grandsons are all together at my house. We decided after a good breakfast of pancakes we would venture for a walk.  We went to Beaver Lake. 
a clear reflection of the clouds and sky in the lake

the canoes stacked waiting for a jaunt on the lake
paths clear for sharing a walk
Looking at beautiful  houses
Helping each other to conquer new heights

A porch to rest your weary feet

A glance around the neighborhood revealed great views

 I hope your week is filled with sunshine and joy

Muted colors

Soft muted colors make me smile
In my mind I envision softness, calmness and joy when I walk into a soft color room
In my bedroom I have creamy white. The touch of these peachy roses makes me smile. 
My french linen lamp shade with the marble lamp is one of my favorite things in my bedroom. I remember when I walked into the shop and saw it. I loved the pattern on the shade and it came home with me. 
I brought that calmness to my porch in creamy natural curtains and in my pillows. 

Of course, ironstone, vintage and worn always brings me J O Y!  This almost parchment color has that earthiness that makes me sigh. My vintage plant pressings add that earthiness too. 

I found these two bears at The Asheville Flea you'll. they had to come home with me. I imagine a child snuggling with these soft cuddly bears. And the fact that they are not perfect makes them more special. 
I love the fact that they were dressed in sweet white shifts. 
My silk lamp shade came from Round Top via Marcia from A Secret Garden in Mount Dora Florida. 

And just think all these wonderful memories lifted by those sweet roses

What makes you remember the sweet colors in your life?  Di
