Dreams

What sorts of things do you dream of when you dream? I mean, what are the desires of your heart? In my dreams, I often find myself in a sunny orange grove. I’m barefooted—the warm earth under my feet, the murmuring groves, the air thick with the sugary scent of oranges, and butterflies hovering over my head as I play among trees and under branches heavy with sweet oranges hanging low on them. But it is more than just some recurrent dream—-it is a stirring of the soul and the natural yearnings of my heart.

Clouds are meant for gazing, and rainy days for daydreaming, and since it's been raining here, well, that's what I’ve been doing--daydreaming with things I like and would like to have one day—like a cottage in the manner of times past. I can see it clearly in my mind’s eye—a cottage that looks as though it has grown out of the ground. It has low rooms and open-joisted ceilings and boarded doors and solid oak flooring, and it have big windows and at least one big open hearth. Of course, my cottage is situated in a peaceful location; in a tranquil rural setting and each and every room is floated with natural light. I also see a freshwater stream running behind in a grove of ancient trees…

And when it comes to personal style, I have my own dreams too… so, I’ve been dreaming with some boots like these and some pretty lacey boot socks like these… Lately, I’ve been seeing this new trend everywhere—knee high socks that go just above the boots. I’ve come to realize, I absolutely love this trend. It’s very edgy, yet vintage at the same time. Super cute!

And I want a necklace like that! I absolutely love it!

And this gorgeous gypsy skirt! I’ve never seen anything as beautiful! You? Would you wear something like that? C’mon! Really? Not even when nobody is around and is just you playing 'fairy' in your own backyard? ;) Have you ever heard of the books Bridge to Terabithia? Have you always wanted your own magical enchanted world to own? Then I'm sure this skirt is right for you ;)

Well, I must tell you... at least one of my dreams got fulfilled this week. Ah yes, I got my very own gorgeous gypsy skirt to wear!

It might not be as fancy as the one on the previous photograph, but I think it’s as pretty… and I can certainly wear this anywhere everywhere…

I love the amalgamation of colors and lace trim on top and bottom part… It suits my gypsy heart perfectly!

I just love it! Are you a dreamer too?

Have any of your dreams come true this week?
