Head In The Clouds



The Hopeless Romantic




 **********


For the most part, I am as dependable, reliable and respectable as they come.
Feet firmly on the ground.
Good health, happy family, debt free, realistic mortgage.

But sometimes, some days.....
I just want to have my head in the clouds!

I love shabby chic.

I love a good romantic movie.



    North and South 




The BBC's production of Elizabeth Gaskell novel written in 1854.
 There is no other romantic movie or book quite like this one.
 If you have not seen it, don't bother to rent it, just go out and buy it.
  You will want to watch this movie time and again.

It's okay to have a hero.




 Diana, Princess of Wales
Somethings in life are just sad.
 Diana breathed life into and changed the face of the British Royal Kingdom forever.




 She was just like us.  We all could connect with her.
 She alone brought the Royal Family into modernization.
She gave birth to an excellent King to be.  His reign will be a successful one.
All this and she never lived to see her accomplishments.
Somethings are just too sad.

Everyone should have vintage in their decor.

  3. If that North & South is from the same novel as the 1980s mini-series with Patrick Swayze, I agree completely. I fell in love with Patrick's character...

    Love the shabby chic

  5. I am a romantic at heart as well. I love all things pretty, pink, frilly, fantastical...fairies, toadstools and the English countryside. All this from a scientific minded person (I'm a vet). I think it's my balance that I need =) It is so, so sad about Diana. I realized recently that she was younger than I am now when she died. Too young.
