Dream BIG

Here at Peasant House we like to dream big.

I, for one have no strictures on how big I like to dream. So, for my *dream house* I like to look at the Horchow Collections

When I was a little girl I had a bedroom sort-of-like-this, but without the canopies--desk and all.

But...I had always wanted one like this,

Of course my parents would not hear of it.

Now, I'm thinking...I could do bedroom #2, but I would have to clear it with DH. I'm sure he will like it, and would not be opposed to it, if I could find some fabric like it in a garage sale...(ha, ha)

Hey, I can dream! You go ahead and dream too.

My whole point of this 'dreamy' post is to make reference to the *new* style of bed spreads.

Had you noticed? A top which covers the mattress, with an attached ruffle. This style is so doable! Quilts would take a lot less time to finish...and I could make more.

In my childhood 'everyone' had this type of bedspread. A one-layer one for summer and a quilted one for winter. But, both with the ruffle....something to consider. Thank you, Horchow, for the inspiration.

Before I forget, I also want to thank Hobby Lobby for not having disgusting, ugly, freaky to little children, decorations in their store.

I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday looking for double pointed bamboo needles, but they were out. However I 'had to' buy some DMC cotton #20 for a project that I have in mind.

So...Thank you Hobby Lobby for not having your store all uglied-up for the door-bell-ringing-by-children-day. (you may have guessed, we don't do 'pagan's holidays')

I'll leave you with this:

"And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you" 2Co 6:16-17

In His hands, ^__^

How did you ever find MY childhood dream bedroom AND my now dream bedroom!!
Those are beautiful pictures, you'd haveta have the house that went with that room too!
Maybe you should have a meme of "Dream Big" how you'd have your room, kitchen, etc with pictures from magazines and such. I have a few favorites, even quilts that I really like, that one day, when I'm old and grey will make-if I'm ever old or grey!! :)

I know a FEW little girls who would like to live in that pink bedroom!

As for Hobby Lobby...I also never have to be concerned about the music my children (or I) will hear while we are in the store. I really appreciate hearing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs!
