Every morning, I *entertain* my family with my dreams from the night before. I have quite vivid, detailed dreams, to which they would readily attest, since they have to listen to them each morning.
The other night, I dreamt that I had a blue cottage........
The dream began with me being young and single, looking for a home of my own. I found an absolutely charming little blue cottage. Blue with white trim. It was very small, and it was in need of some repair, but had so much potential of being just the cutest home ever!! The story was that an old movie called "The Enchanted Cottage" had been filmed there, many years ago, a fact which I found -- well, enchanting. The yard was small and quite manageable, with a cottage garden that would not take much work to restore to loveliness. The only drawback was that the house was in a very bad (unsafe) neighborhood. In my dream, I weighed out my decision ~ was the beautiful little blue house worth the risk? Ultimately, I decided that it was, and lived happily ever after, in the charming blue cottage (or at least until I woke up in the morning :)
Of course, in my dream, I decided to name my home, "The Enchanted Cottage". When I told Chris that part of my dream, he said "What? The Banshee Cottage?" No, NO, I replied, "The Enchanted Cottage"!!!!!! Men, they just don't get it!!
As I don't have a picture of the house from my dream to show you, I posted a picture of our little blue playhouse in its glory days. This picture was taken ten years ago at our backyard garden wedding. We moved the playhouse here with us, but it is in need of repair, just like the cottage in my dream. The other photos are from our garden here in the country.
