And ...this wonderfully, elegant knitted top!
This jacket ...look at that detail! It's so scrumptious that it is paired with a silk evening skirt!
This is totally me! I love the vintage look of this sweater!
Last, but certainly not least is this sweater. It just makes such a regal statement!
Okay, so I live in a fantasy world! But, there is nothing wrong with dreaming a little. I have tucked this gorgeous magazine away for when I have a little quiet time and can curl up on my sofa with a cup of tea to ever so slowly turn each and every page drinking in the beauty of each and every photo.
Unfortunately for me ....#1 son and daughter-in-law are still living at the house along with granddaughter and grandson. Let's just say ...there is never a dull moment. Or quiet one! The good news is that #1 son and daughter-in-law have both found jobs. Now we just have to save enough money for an apartment! Wish us lots of luck!
Speaking of a fantasy world ...I recently picked up one of my favorite magazines (which will remain nameless) ...but, I'm sure that a lot of you out there in blogland read it as well. There was this wonderfully written article about a very talented and creative artist. Not only does she excel as an outstanding artist, but designs and crochet's the most magnificant garments. If you perhaps read this article ...she totally lives in a fantasy world. The articles claims that she arises each morning by the warm and gentle glow of the sun on her face. She glances at the unfinished garment that she was working on the night before. She rises and picks up where she left off, while hubby dear arrives with cappuccino in hand. After she has worked a few rows on her latest creation ...she descends the stairs into the kitchen where she is greeted with her latest canvas art work. She adds a few strokes to the canvas before leaving for her morning walk in the nearby forest!
Now really ...who lives like this? If there are truely women out there that live like this then I want to find out what they are having for breakfast! I'm lucky to just get one cup of tea in the morning and as for my latest projects ...well, lets just say there are too many UFO's to mention. Between the laundry, dusting, vacuuming and now ...there are diapers to change and two kids to chase all day.
...who rises to the warm and gentle sun on their face?
And...they call this retirement!
