wish i was…





as the days are lengthening and the weather is warming up, i am longing to spend some time outside, on my own, in the soft pre-spring sun. in my fantasies i have a sweet little tent/teepee to lay in and read, write or just day dream. i will take my stack of unread magazines {of which there is many}, my favourite journal and beautiful throws and pillows so i can really settle in {like hibernating, but in spring}.

i think i will try and make this ‘wish i was…’ a reality. i’ll let you know how i go.

the marimekko dress i only spied today over at maria’s lovely blog ‘jamie says dream’. the moment i saw this image my heart was singing. i think this dress will be perfect for planning and dreaming.

mmm…. i wish i was…

much love

    Gorgeous images as always. I’ve heard great reviews of those sweeties, coconut cheesecakes, is that right? And if camping included sweet tents like that, I might be induced to try it!

    Oh, do I know the feeling of unread journals and also some books. I’ve been sooooo busy lately and with taking photographs and blogging…. what can I say?

    You’ve just inspired me. Ok, the idea of the teepee is fun, but do I really want to schlepp all my stuff out? I’ve got an in-build nook for reading. So, here goes. I will commit to spending between 1-2 hours on a friday afternoon/early evening catching up?

    Fancy also committing??? Happy weekend xx

    Love the Marimekko dress.

    now leah, if it rains, that tent does not look very protective. also you might like a bit of screening to keep out the mosquitos? but it looks lovely. i hope you DO make it happen. joy to you!

    I hope you do create a little special place for yourself to read and take care of you. It’s is, hands down, a great goal to give yourself. I agree, that dress is lovely.

      i think we all need that special place or nook, to take time out and nurture ourselves xx
