Some people dream in color, some can feel pain in dreams. Some are better at math or can speak a foreign language in dreams. But me, I dream in vintage....

Seriously, like many women, I curl up in bed and think about my day, my projects that I want to do tomorrow, how excited I am to go shopping this weekend and then eventually I bore myself and fall asleep, then I often dream about vintage!

Just last night, I had a dream that I was in a vintage clothing store and they had the most FANTASTIC hats I had ever seen!! velvets, wool, satin, beading, feathers, all jewel tone, of course. All glorious vintage hats from the 20's-40's and all under $5! I tried them all on and of course, they all looked perfect! Some were tall and what some people would call "obnoxious" but I called them beautiful. I was so happy because everywhere I go, I always search for "the perfect hat". I'm never quite sure what this dream hat will look like but I'm always on the hunt for it. And here I was, in a shop with several shelves of (literally) dream hats. Some still had original tags and boxes, some were missing beading which meant that I would have the pleasure of fixing them. I bought all of them and just as the shop keeper was putting them in a bag, I woke up! :( *sobs* what a terrible awakening!! Luckily, I still remember what they look like, so now I do know what my "dream hat" looks like!

With vintage dreams also come vintage nightmares like the time I dreamed I was shopping at one of my favorite vintage shops and I saw a girl sitting in a pile of dresses, cutting them to mid-thigh length and ripping the tags out of them! Naturally, I attacked her and woke up sweaty and panting. Pj woke up and said "What's wrong?!" and I replied "Oh, my god! I just had the most TERRIBLE dream!" *LOL*

These are my 4 dreamscape images....all things that I have actually dreamed about!

I love rain. watching it makes me day dream and listening to it makes me fall asleep. I have always been soothed by water and I love to watch it fall in puddles on the street.

These are the stairs inside the St Augustine Lighthouse in St Augustine Florida. Pj and I honeymooned in St Augustine and I climbed these stairs. I dream of moving there someday!

Come on, what girl doesn't dream of chocolate?!

Is there anything more dreamy than sitting under a tree in the autumn, listing to the leaves crackle and crunch and feeling the wind blow, tangling up your hair?
