Wishing Big on White Wednesday

This is another day for "two, two, two parties in one",
well three, if you count my previous post.

I had so much fun with the Multiples Party,
 that I wanted to play along with Vintage Junky's
"Wish List Party".
 Her instructions were to be totally selfish,
 and find something for which you were wishing.
And of course, I just love participating in White Wednesday,
so today I'm doing both!



Classical English Conservatory




OK, so I'm going BIG

And while I'm at it I'll take the flagstone or brick paver patio.




I love English Country Design and this is just something
 I have admired and desired for a long time.
Do I need it? no. Would I love to have it? yes.
Today you get just a hint at my totally decadent desires.




OK, it won't fit in a stocking.
My life is full of wonderful people and things,
But there are just a few items that a girl can wish for...

And THEN, I could do this...!
AHHHH, just a little daydreaming, here.
I'll try not to let it get out of hand.

I guess if you're going to wish, it needs to be good!

Say Hi to Michelle at Vintage Junky






And Kathleen at Faded Charm





And may all your "White Wishes" Come True!

  1. Love those conservatories. They are truly lavish and wishable...even though we don't need them in California. I'm with you on the magazines and also love those wired glass displays. Although if I put corn candy in them...I would need a ten pound bag to keep refilling them...thanks for sharing! Carla

    Yeah, if only!
    Great wish, here's hoping it (and all the rest) come true.

  8. Oh, what lovely pics of conservatories. I, too, would love to have one. However, mine would be just a little less ornate on the end of a white farmhouse! Can't hurt to dream a little...ahhh!

  16. Love your wish list! Looks like you have focused on one thing! I have a tabletop conservatory that Mr. Hughes built me, but I would love the real thing. Go ahead and give me the English Manor that goes with it! Thanks so much for joining in1

    Smiles!

  17. Debra,
    Love your blog, from the awesome pumpkin banner to White Wednesday to the garage clean up! My gosh, my husband would love me to clean up my stuff in the garage. Great blog, following you back. Lisa

  18. Debra, I think it is a perfect wish. I love these conservatories as well. I buy a lot of British mags and always love to look at the ones in the back pages and dream too. If I would quit buying the mags then I might be able to afford one of these someday.
    Hugs,
    June

    I think you made my wish list just grow longer!! Wow! A conservatory? I would have to get serious about gardening, right?

    All of your pictures are gorgeous. It's okay to dream. Isn't it? ;-)

  21. I too have always admired these lovely English Conservatories...I would probably spend a great deal of time in it since I love the sunshine and working in my garden...wow! to be able to garden at some level year round...It would be like living a dream...donna

  22. That would be my dream as well. All that white outside and those windows and that design. I wouldn't call it a conservatory, I would call it a Family Room.

    Thanks for sharing this W.W.

  24. I'm loving it! Of course, I've seen your sun room. And plenty a gal would wish for that. Nothing wrong with dreaming! ~Mindy

  25. Surely sounds good to me. I have some English magazines that I won in a contest awhile back. There are so many conservatory articles and ads it would make you think everyone over there has one. Sigh..I can wish with you. ;)

    I'm a bit of a blog addict- so I'm sure I'll be visiting you, often!!

    Have a wonderful day.

  29. Oh how I wish I could have a conservatory. I would spend all my blogging moments inside there! Any idea what the price tag is on them. My problem is my taste is always beyond my means. But sometimes we need to splurge and treat ourselves.
