I WISH........

Wish I may, I wish I might......As a little girl I did alot of daydreaming and often I would close me eyes really tight and make a WISH for a white pony. I always wanted the wishbone when Mother would fry chicken so I could make a WISH for my white PONY. I would pray at night for that WHITE PONY to be tied to a tree when I awoke in the morning. Sure enough , I would hop out of bed and run to the window to see if the PONY was there! Needless to say, I never got that WHITE PONY. But I learned a valuable lesson that I can see now as an adult. If I had gotten that greatly desired PONY there would have come with it, lots and lots of responsibilities. Of course as a child I did not take that into consideration. The old adage that says, "Be Careful what you WISH for!" is so true, isn't it?? Well, I have assembled a little WISH LIST below just for fun and I am wondering, WHAT DO YOU WISH FOR?....................

I wish........


I were by this pool sipping a drink!




I were back in Scotland for a visit!


I could sleep this soundly.





I had this view every morning!




I had these BLUE eyes.







I had this minimalistic lovely livingroom!







I had her GOLF SWING (and handicap)!







I had the talent to paint the SKY like this!









I had this trumeau or one similar.


















I had more of this vintage crewel fabric.





THIS wish list,of course, is all in fun, because I am so very thankful for ALL I have and I certainly don't NEED one thing more. God has blessed me over and above all that I have ever expected or dreamed. He has blessed me with a wonderful family and friends and a great community where I have lived my entire life. My real WISH list would be that there would be PEACE in the hearts and lives of all mankind and HOPE and JOY and all the LOVE possible here on earth. And I know that that can only come from HIM who created us. Have a BLESSED day, my friends!!

Hi...this was an interesting post filled with beautiful pictures... I think our dreams are necessary to make us look at things in the world in a more positive way...

I do love having a wishlist, half the fun is dreaming, looking for that perfect something, the hunt. I could come up with a wish list that is full of items, aspirations, dreams.

But, I have noticed that the happiest people are the ones who 'want what they have' - it makes you appreciative for the blessings in life! It looks like you have some wonderful blessings in your life. Your grandchildren are beautiful!

I love this list and wish I was poolside or in Scotland too! Although this time of year-- maybe more pool than Scotland. Thanks for helping me daydream a little today.

A very nice wish list. It is fun to take a little time to dream. Oh dear off the top of my head I can't think of anything. I'm sure there are some things, but all that comes to mind right now is-I wish I weren't so cold. Burrr... I'm not even outside- this is how cold it is here in IL. I open the door for our pup to go out and before she comes in her little potty spot is frozen!
Thanks my friend for dreaming with us. xoxo

I'm wondering what you would do with more of that beautiful crewel fabric? I have quite a bit of vintage crewel- old drapery panels- that I've had for a couple of years. I know I should use it, but I'm so afraid to cut it. It's just so pretty. So, I wonder what you would do with yours? Pillows? Upholster a bench? I wold love to know!

wonderful wishes! a doctor once told me that when you get depressed, to imagine you just won the lottery and think of what you would do with the money - it would help. wish list reminds me of that.
