the house in my dreams


There is a house that lives in my dreams.  It is a very large house with elegant Victorian details, secret rooms that have been long forgotten and an abandoned, untouched aura about the rooms.  It is located in my hometown, a hilltop in Italy or a misty parish somewhere in England, I’m not sure. The location is always different but the house is the same. 
 This would be my view
and the entry into my intimate courtyard
 that leads into a sunken colorful garden
fancy shutters are a must on the windows
 a private courtyard for entertaining my friends
I can even feed my pet giraffe 
from my bedroom window
 now we may enter through the front door
 jewelry tiebacks accent my windows
 and of course, there are plenty of hidden doors
 that lead to my inner sanctuary 
a wardrobe built-in to the wall leads to different rooms  
 of course there’s a chandelier in my favorite color
 a place to relax
 and another cozy nook for reading
 there’s always a grand staircase in my dreams
  like the ones from Gone with the Wind
the staircase does not lead me to Rhett, 
but to long unexplored rooms
 like this one
 this one
  this one
or this one
 then I could just slide down
to another secret garden

Do you ever dream of 
visiting the same unknown place?

ciao! fabiana

  1. Will you have blog readers as guests for Saturday morning cappuccino and biscotti? In one of the gardens? (Hint: I would like an invite. :-)
