This is where I get to say anything I feel like saying and you get to agree with me.
We will also share stories and chocolate if you have any.
Naps are also encouraged, if shopping is out of the question.

Hard to choose one I like best ... white is working for me lately.

Someone's in the Kitchen ...



Just when I have decided that my new kitchen will be all white with a touch of natural wood .... I see things that make me change my mind .... all the time...

I want ....

I want to sit in a cafe and chat with a girlfriend, after shopping for shoes.
I want to go to the Museum and see some paintings that make me smile


Then I want to go home and rest and then go somewhere for dinner, with a good view.

Longings

All of my longings to have a garden and to see flowers everywhere, come out when I look at photos like this.

Velvet Goldmine

Saw this today and decided that gold velvet is the way to go.

Can you see me here ?

Yes, I seem to be obsessing over kitchens. Eventually it will stop , then I will obsess over bathrooms.
But that chandelier is very much like one we have here and I had not considered it in a kitchen until now..  I do like it over my bed but it might work someday in that kitchen .. that I have not met yet ~

In the Kitchen

Now that we are really going to be house hunting , for  a real house in a country setting , all of my wish-lists and dream rooms that I have saved, can now be taken out and looked at and remembered when looking at houses.
I can look at an old home on a real estate website and point out the dark wooden paneling or the stained cabinets in the kitchen and say, White paint .. strip it, paint it white, leave the beams, done !

This kitchen is the new kitchen in a very old house. Subway tiles, that sink ! the fridge !
Then I see a house that has the light and windows and room for a color perhaps. 
What if I skip the all white kitchen and go for an elegant color ? or is this a passing fancy and I will wish things were light and white again ?
Yes, I think the white kitchen idea is good for us. Now about that floor ......

Hopeful

I hope that our new home, will look like this  in some way..
That there will be trees everywhere 
And if possible, each year I will go somewhere to get my city fix, aside from New York City,
somewhere like this ...

Shoes

Never mind who the girl is wearing them .. the important thing is the Shoes and where can I get them .
We are leaving Summer, going into Autumn but I might possibly be back in NY this Summer .. just to be sure I am as confused as I can be.. weather-wise.
I want these shoes. They will go with everything and be perfect when I don't feel like wearing ballet flats .. I walk miles a day, City-walking... I need comfy shoes that look good.
There they are ! Love the color too.

Tuft

I like the leather version, my husband said what about something soft like velvet.
I love that man.
We will both have to consider the pile of wood, one of us has this thing about spiders.
But I like the idea of the trunk, you never know when you might have to hide a body or something.

Dining

In my next home, I am hoping for an extra special dining area or room.
This would be perfect in an old home with lots of windows.

On warm weather days, what better than to sit outside and have dinner ?
After dinner you can dance with the fireflies ~
