Design and Ideas

Everyone has different taste.  I like classic and the 30’s and 40’s era were a facinating time.  I also loved the 60’s.  My parents grew up in the 30s and 40’s.  I grew up in the 60’s.  My children grew up in the 70’s and 80’s and my grandchildren are in the 2018’s.  I guess that dates me.   I don’t have a lot of time left.

I love the 1932 Ford Roadster with the rumble seat.  My Dad had one similar to that and I love the looks of it.  My aunt Marion has a photo of her in a fur coat sitting in the rumble seat.  So he had that car before he even met my Mom.   I love it.  If I ever won the lottery, I would buy a restored 1932 Ford Roadster.  I would take it for rides on Sunday on country roads and get an old fashioned creemee, which is a softserve ice cream cone,  for along the way.

I saw the movie “The Notebook” the other night.  It made me cry that there is such love in the world.  I was never privilaged enough to have that kind of love.  But it was so beautiful to see.  I got dumped by my husband in the 1980’s.  So my true love was not that.  And I mean dumped.  Like I was nothing.  And I really do not think that I deserved the life that I was struggled in after that.  But that is the real world.


My husband had a 1965 white Pontiac GTO.  It was car of the year that year.  And it was leather seats, a hurst shift and all chrome inside the hood.   Beautiful car.  Those were the fun times.


My grandparents had a farmhouse that was totally facinating to me as a kid.  This Craftsbury Cottage from Yankee Barn homes is what I would have built to enjoy my retirement.  I would love gatherings with my children and grandchildren in a place like that.



I would have Martha Stewart’s kitchen from the Home Depot.  Because I really love to cook and bake.  I hate to be narcisstic and be all about I, but this is my taste I am writing about.  Some people would like a different kind of kitchen.


The above is my dream laundry room.  That is the exact design that I love.


A beautiful outside area where you could have an outside tea party.  I love the pink Hydrangas.  I think blue and white Hydrangas are gorgeous, also.


A garden with little garden paths would be a design to work on.

So many ideas.


The above is my next dream house that would be near the ocean.  That would be the winter getaway in a warmer climate.


The above would be the design of the kitchen.


It would have a sewing and craft room designed like the above.

An office with a desk like the above.


I love the design of the coffee barista above.  Because I love coffee.

The car that I love would be the Toyota Lexus RX 350.

So that is what I love.  To have all that is not in the stars for me.


I enjoy country roads in the summer and the beauty of orange lillies along the road.


Walks along the walking trail and just enjoying life and appreciating what I have.

But I still like what I like and it’s been quite a journey.
