A Girl Can Dream


I think Bill is getting ready to buy me my dream house. I can just feel it. Want proof? Last night when he was returning some e-mails I asked him if he was going to put in an offer and he said "Sure hon, whatever you say". Doesn't that sound like a definite yes?


With that settled I need to come up with paint colors, fabric choices, furniture plans. I mean this could happen any time between now and November 2025. A girl needs to be prepared, right?

For the dining room, I am thinking something like this from the latest Southern Living. I love just about everything about it. I would swap out the green velvet for blue and I would be good to go. And add some chairs and a bigger table, but other than that...perfect!!


That wallpaper just kills me. Love it!!! I might actually have people over for dinner if my dining room looked like this.
Thanksgiving at my house next year, want to come?

    You are absolutely right to go ahead and plan the dining room and I will be delighted to accept your invitation to dinner.

  4. Sissy you have very good taste. The photo you found in Southern Living is from the BluePrint Store in Dallas, Texas. I absolutely twitch with excitement when I go in there. Set in a big old Victorian house painted the whitest white with sassy blue doors, it is a place that doesn't disappoint.
    And, yes, the wall paper is wonderful. Just on one wall there.
    The best part of the whole experience is the lovely people who run the business. I bet you they would let you host a dinner party in their store if you asked really nicely.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and you family.

  7. Marybeth is always full of good information! Your dream and my dream house are probably on the same schedule. I'll be the first in line to at your Thanksgiving feast! I know I've seen that wallpaper before. Love it in this colorway.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
