Sometimes I'm dreaming




We are collectors and call our place lovingly "The Museum". And I have vivid dreams that often follow me through the whole day, sometimes even through years. Yes, I also have a good memory.
One of my most unforgettable dreams was the one which took me back in time, to a toy store in the 30s, I'd say. I wonder if my eyes lit up like a child's on Christmas. They probably still do just thinking about it. I remember waking up being all excited, looking around me and there was nothing. Still that happy feeling didn't leave me that day.

Of course that feeling doesn't always come from material things. Sometimes I dream about meeting old friends or just having a fabulous day.
For today however I chose some pieces of jewelry which in my opinion would make up a very happy dream. Get on board and let's have a look.

 




I'm in love with these earrings by Gwenbeads. The color combination is just gorgeous.




The hammered bangles by Galadryl Design woke another memory in me - teenagers running to a certain store to buy just one more of their bangles. It was an affordable price then, but honestly, they were by far not as pretty as these!









I have no idea why, but when seeing this beautiful braid bangle by Dianne Karg Baron, I see Guinevere in a blue velvet dress. A dreamy design for sure.













Do you hear music in your dreams?
This lovely necklace by Colla would so make me hear 70s music. It reminds me of the belt a friend of mine had, only this necklace is so much more beautiful.












Of course these are not the only pieces that make me dream, but after all there is more than one night ahead of me ....
Want to share your jewelry dreams with me? ;-)

I want to dream like you dream!

Love the tapestry you weave when sharing your dreams. My dreams are so weird that I can't make any sense of them.

You have a very vivid imagination! I'm happy that my bracelet was able to inspire your mindful meanderings!

Sigh, lovely! What really bugs me is when I dream of an awesome design, and upon waking it just dissolves out of my mind...
