I'm a dreamer

I'm a daydreamer, and proud of it! I'm sure it drove my parents crazy when I was a child. I know it drives Rob (my honey) nuts every now and then, but it's the artist and the optimist in me.

I often daydream about this building. It's just GORGEOUS! built in 1911. All brick trimmed in copper at the top.

AMAZING wrought iron floral details over the windows and door.

Wrought iron flower baskets with vivid geraniums under the windows.

This wonderful old fashion style clock perched on the corner.

Topiaries in the front and a little fountain by the door. SWOON!
oh and don't even get me going on the inside. Heavenly!

I've passed this building for years and years now.
I can always picture it as my little storefront/ studio. It's been a dream of mine since i was about 7 or 8 to own my own jewelry store, and this is what it would look like.

This fabulous building up until very recently has been a floral shop and now it's up for Lease! Oh how I wish. But with the kiddies still so young this isn't the time to venture that far out so I'll just keep dreaming and hope that when that time comes the lease sign is back in the window ;)

What do you daydream about?
