These Dreams

I am a list maker. At night when I can't sleep I visualize all the things I want to do around the house. I can edit the "dreams" and change things a lot easier than I can in real life. I just finished my physical list this week of all the things I want to get done around the house this year. I went room by room and began writing. Let's just say we have multiple pages. Even them I look at it and sigh I also think they make the dreams seem reachable.
My daughter inherited my listiness. She asks us to write down lists of things we need to do with her. Here is an example:

Delia Mommy Day
Go to Target
Go to the cat shelter
Get a snack
Go to pet store
Go to ice cream shop (the previously mentioned Troutdale General Store)
Mystery place

Her lists can be exhausting, but I find them charming...I wonder why?

The house is decorated for Valentine's Day. I purged several things and am happy to say I may have my decorations for the holiday of love down to only one plastic container (unless of course I continue making new stuff!).

Finished a few projects this week.

Dream Sign (For sale on my Etsy sight soon)

Vintage Valentine Buckets

Here is a glimpse at the front window...

I found these golden cherubs last year and packed them with the Valentine's stuff. I need to think up a fabu creation for them!

 Ideas anyone?


  1. Saw your Valentine bucket on the Graphics Fairy. So Lovely!

  2. Glad I found you through Between Naps on the Front Porch! Those buckets are adorable. Following now. ~ Maureen

  3. oooo, I love the word LOVE - are those little spools of thread they are in? So cute!
