I am dreaming of warmer days, and I think this swinging bed would be the perfect thing to lull me into beautiful dreams.

Hiding in the gorgeous Wisteria, climbing on this platform built on a tree stump, would be another wonderful place to dream.

This charming setting would be a great place to dream and invite some friends along for the dreaming.  I love the mixture of “indoor” chairs, and of course blue and yellow is a favorite color combo of mine.

I’m thinking this would be a great dreaming place any time of the year.  There is a wonderful awning to shade me from the sun, and a big fireplace to warm me in the cold.

This tiny garden shed just looks so dreamy.  I love the roof, the stone, the lantern, the arched doorway, and the pathway lined with flowers.

Even the inside is dreamy.  See the partially opened arched window.  Even the rubber boots look inviting.

This stone cottage is a guest house on a farm in Tennessee.  Isn’t it just the most charming and inviting place.  That front porch with the rockers would be a wonderful place to rock while I dream.  Love the stone walls and those soft green shutters.


Yep, I’m dreaming, and these old wheelbarrows filled with flowers are just one more slice of my dream.

Will this Winter weather ever end?  Will my dreams turn into reality?  I’m sure they will.  I just hope it’s soon.  Did you found something to dream about in today’s faves?  Thanks for joining me in my dreams.  laurie

Happy Friday Laurie!
Love all these images but most of all the wheel barrow's filled with flowers because that is my other passion! The tiny garden shed is adorable- I'd love to have a little spot like that!
Have a great weekend!

Wow, that was fun! Dreaming of flowers and warm weather to be outdoors always makes me happy!

I dream of pots filled with overflowing alyssum like those in the wheelbarrows. Sadly just a dream here, I never get them to do this. '-)
Great outdoor faves, Laurie.

If I could just find an old vintage wheel barrow, I would fill it with flowers just like that photo! How charming! Have a great weekend, Laurie!

Very beautiful photos and each one is dreamy. Just wish spring was a little closer. When we wake up from our dreams tomorrow, there will be more snow.
