today's dream would be to sit on that mid century inspired sofa while accessorizing myself with that tiro tiro polis necklace. of course i would be enjoying those banana chocolate chip baked donuts with caramel pecan glaze ... probably on my third by now, while trying to keep my sticky fingers from messing up the sofa. and if i could force myself to put the donuts down, i would attempt to knit up that venus cowl just in time for cooler days.
what's your daydream?
are you hoping to eat, wear, make, or love something (or someone) new?

ps//you can daydream a little more and get inspired with another eat ... wear ... make ... love post.
at the moment ...
i am wearing another one of these.
the dog is going crazy at the back door because a rabbit has decided to taunt her to no end.
i am eating chips ... actually i am on my second bowl of chips.
ordering some temporary tattoos for a friend's birthday. she wants a tattoo so this will help her decide what (and where) to put it.
listening to nina simone while ordering said tattoos and eating before mentioned chips.
relieved that work is done ... the kitchen is clean ... and the plants have been watered too.
hearing drip drops of rain against the window signaling a storm is on the way.
enjoying the fact that even though this day was an uneventful one, it was a good one nonetheless.
what about you?
what's happening at the moment ...?
i don't like tomatoes in my salad, but i would eat that entire plate since it is topped with two of my favorite things (fresh herbs and cheese). the cape i would wear everyday. that planter has been added to my list of things to diy (it's acutally a bird feeder kit from lowes) and the bench is just my style ... clean and simple. you may remember my first attempt at creating a bench here and i absolutely love a mid century inspired piece and think this bench would look perfect placed in front of a window to house an ever increasing collection of plants. (dear husband if you are reading this my apologies, but i'm sure we can make something similiar, right?!)
what are you eating, wearing, making, or loving these days?

tomato & feta dish
so you may remember i mentioned i was working on a bench and i'm pleased to present to you the finished product. what do you think?
the wood has weathered many years and it took a tag team effort between the hubby and i to get it back to all it's glory (or at least to a presentable state). we didn't use any stain on it ... just some polyurethane. and the legs were made by a friend. this is the second wood project i've attempted and now that this one is complete, i'm sure there will be another one to come! stay tuned ... you never know what will pop up around here next!
have you made anything lately?
may i remember what's important in life and not waste time with the unnecessary.
may i live today as if it were my last ... enjoying every minute.
may i love like i've never loved before.
may i trust, believe and know that i can do anything.
i will be thankful for the hardships and struggles. they are making me stronger.
i will embrace happiness and joy. they are making things easier.
i'm thankful for my dreams as i know i'm moving closer and they will soon be within reach.
i'm thankful for the now as it is teaching and preparing me for what's to come.
