Sweet Dreams

Good dreamy morning to you all!

The other day, a package arrived at Heaven's Walk for me.

It was from Melanie at Lettered Threads on Etsy.

I had been anxiously waiting for it.

It came wrapped so sweetly, tied with rustic twine and a sweet thank you note.

And inside....oh....inside...was something very beautiful.
A beautiful dream.

Two pillow slips
lovingly handmade and adorned with the French word for 'dream'.

They were perfectly painted in a soft sandy color.

And one of them looked just dreamy on my bed.

The other one?

You'll have to wait to see where she is sleeping.  

Wishing you a happy, dreamy White Wednesday with Kathleen at Faded Charm!

  5. Your bed makes me want to lay down for a sweet afternoon nap....ahhh. The little pillow is just beautiful. You have a lovely blog and blessed life it seems. Have a wonderful day, Patty

  6. Hi Laurie,

    Always so fun to get packages in the mail, isn't it? The pillow slips are lovely!


  7. What beautiful pillow slips. Looks lovely on your bed. Thanks for sharing.

  8. your bed looks dreamy-wish I could take a nap there!

  9. Love them, Laurie. Doesn't everything sound just so much more romantic in French? They are soooo lovely! Was he mailman able to sneak them in without the Mr. seeing them? I'll bet he spotted the new one on the bed though. Now fess up and tell the truth. Does he know you got TWO? Or is the other one hidden away so you can bring it out later and say, "Oh-I've had this forever?" Huh? Just curious! Have a blessed afternoon! Diana

    Enjoy, sweet dreams are sure to come with those beauties.

  14. Those are so beautiful. I just love etsy & will be checking that shop out in a sec.

    Just stopping by to tell you that you may or may not have won something on my blog. {wink}

    Also, I heard from Mallie at DecoArt but I don't have your email to forward her response.

    Hope you're having a great day!

  15. Hi Again Laurie,
    I checked Home Goods website, and they don't offer online shopping. Phooey! My mom bought it for me about a year ago. I've not noticed any there since, but I will keep my eye out for you! :) Oooh, Sanibel Island! How wonderful! Hubby & I went there for a day trip 1 1/2 years ago when we were in Florida for a long weekend. I was in shell heaven! I had always heard about the wonderful sea shells there, but I didn't believe it til I saw with my own eyes! I would love to go back! Have a great day!

  16. Laurie- Got your message on my JunkInTheTrunk-lol The Meyers Soap is in the natural (read that health food) section of larger grocery stores. comes in lavender scent. It's a sickness, isn't it? I started out with the Lemon Verbana scent and my next one is lavender. I gotta go check something out...Okay-here is where I was buying mine and they offer free shipping all the you get money off your next purchase. This was before I knew I could buy it locally...and it is the same price online. Here's the link: are gonna be hooked like a fish on a line once you try it. I thought it was a bit high priced until I started using it. I can't believe how far it goes...and the smell....heavenly. Hope you-know-who isn't there when the UPS guy pulls up with soap in the back! lol Good night, sweet friend....xxoo Diana

  17. ps...I am now using their dish soap too. It is one of those that suds up beautifully but it is natural and doesn't harm the environment. D

  18. Love your new pillow slips...beautiful! I think it's time to go shopping!
