I haven't put up an 'inspired by' post in a long time so thought I'd share with you some of what I'm dreaming about these days.. Little Miss Flu Head is still taking up residence over this way.. though.. fingers crossed I might have her packing very soon.. Actually what I'd really like is to have Little Miss Flu Head stay behind in Sydney and send myself packing instead... If only Hawaii was situated on the flight path between Australia and Europe I'd plan my perfect holiday.. Although.. Thailand is not too shabby I think..
It's funny what can inspire travel.. A simple full bloomed rose with a palm tree backdrop has me thinking of Hawaii.. Add the vintage tins from a french brocante and now I'm dreaming of Indochina or the French countryside.. Of course a travel dream wouldn't be a travel dream without some Italy thrown in.. and the Blue Lady you ask? I just love her.. Perhaps a little restrained.. though I can imagine she is about to embark on a transatlantic crossing upon a stately ship from a bygone era.. By the time she reaches her destination.. the sea will have tossled her hair and relaxed her smile and I do believe there will be a sparkle in those sad blue eyes.. I think she looks happier just at the prospect.. .. [of course all those years of frowning it will take some work]. Maybe I'll call her 'Dorianne Blue' ......
Now Before I Go
I'd like to make some belated thanks to two lovely bloggers who recently passed awards my way:
It's always a pleasure to visit their blogs and I hope you'll do so too ...
[where you'll find tons of decor inspiration]
Have A Lovely Week
And whatever part of the world you wake up in.. I hope the sun is shining for you...
