dreamy friday

 Imagine yourself waking up from a dream and landing here, rested and refreshed.  Imagine that everything you do today revolves around shades of white, bone, pale gray and golden accents.
 You saunter over to your dressing table and apply a fresh face before you prepare a healthy breakfast.

 Piping hot oatmeal, fresh fruit and some roasted coffee.
 What a pretty kitchen.  Light, airy and clean.
 Your mind wanders to wishes and place settings for Thanksgiving and gathering with those you cherish.
 Then you think that a place setting needs to be there for the one's that cannot be with you.
 Mother Nature cards from Austin Press are used for each guest to write a Thanksgiving wish.

After a busy day of dreaming, I find this pillow so soothing and all I want to do is sit a spell and cozy up at home on friday nite to a clean home and to my dear husband.
A dreamy pair of chairs to sit a spell and spend time enjoying one another's company and the desire to lighten up after a long week.

Hope your friday is dreamy.
Do you allow yourself time to dream?

I'm afraid I dream the day away... Have pretty much just realized that Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so am planning to spend the day cleaning my house (though not until after a nice long walk with the dog, during which time I will allow myself to dream, but then get busy!) Nice thoughts! Have a great weekend back home!

Ready to just toss all the plans and spend time dreaming in these lovely spaces... But work calls and we're in full holiday shopping mode! Happy dreamy weekend, Patricia.

Love dreaming. Oh yes I love a clean and crisp home. I think I need a wife to help me keep it this way. :) Enjoy your weekend my friend! xo

Such a dreamy way to start the day! I've had my oatmeal, but my nightstand doesn't look nearly as lovely as the one pictured there, and our house is still in transition while we wait for some new furniture to be delivered. But I think I'll pull a little of the restful beauty from your post into my Friday to set just the right tone for the rest of the day -- and weekend. Hope it's a happy one for you, Patricia!

Dreaming of all this and more. I'm afraid dreaming is my middle name!

Wishing you & your family a blessed Thanksgiving Patricia.

That dressing table needs to come my way. I wonder who makes it? Come by and say hello. The girls and I are heading to Paris for the holiday. Do you have any tips?

Lovely post, great reminders and a promise made to oneself. Make your dream time real and make it happen!

I do love to clean, it helps me dream and that's how the two become one in the same. They give momentum to each other. It makes for grateful weekends too!

Have a lovely weekend.
