It is such a beautiful day today: 68 degrees and not a cloud in the sky!  I went on a long walk and started to daydream about conservatories.

If I could do anything to our home and if money were no object I would add a conservatory to our breakfast room, like this one:


*le sigh*   I love this room...the colors, wirework chandy and pretty....

It is good to have dreams and goals, don't you think!  What are you dreaming about today?

Until next time...

  10. Oh Ricki Jill,
    That is such a lovely space...Today I am dreaming of a beautiful garden, filled with beautiful flowers where I can sit, relax and enjoy our typically sunny days...Today it's been raining...:-S Have a beautiful day.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  11. It is a perfectly gorgeous place to dream about, and dream in.
    I hope you get one just like it someday soon!

  12. that is a beautiful space, very light fresh and relaxing.Today I'm dreaming of summer and strawberries, my Florida friends all talk about the local berries, our local berries are months and months away.

  13. I have lots of dreams...but I'm dreaming about that beautiful room you've shared now! I love the wicker!

  14. I love the conservatory! I could live with one like that...
    You are right - it is good to have dreams!

  15. I'm not sure if a conservatory is the same with a Lanai. In my country, a Lanai is a veranda or roofed patio often furnished and used as a living room. If only we were blessed with a huge land area, I would love to own a Lanai. If I would choose its interiors, I want it to appear like what you were dreaming :) White base paint, white furniture, and later accentuated by pastel colored pieces.

  16. This moment...I'm dreaming about painting my wicker furniture...I'd been thinking about it and you're totally inspiring me with this picture! Hmmmm...
