a soft place to rest your head and dream......

Lots of new pillows & softies up in both of my shops!
I've been busy sewing AND taking photos for you! And having fun dreaming up cloud pillows in different color variations.

I just love the idea of dreams.

Dreams are, on the one hand, those bits and pieces of another world you remember when you wake up in the morning. My little brother and I would always share our dreams with each other at breakfast. I miss that now that we are grown-up and live so far apart. Now and then we still e-mail each other our dreams. Sometimes I know exactly what the symbols in my dreams mean, but not always. If I ever feel I have my head in the clouds, I think of the stories in the Old Testament where dreams are interpreted and am reminded that dreams really are important. 

"To dream is to transcend time." 
-Anthony J. W. Benson 
On the other hand, there is the meaning of dream as in a grand vision, a meaningful goal, a yearning and desire to make something change or happen.

 "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined." --Thoreau 

While making these pillows, I thought how lovely for a child to have this not only this little reminder to dream big and shoot for the stars, but also the reminder to be still and to look within.

"Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity." 
-Kahil Gibran  

Dreams are important!

I couldn't agree more about dreams. Thoreau's quote is one of my favorites. I love your dream pillow creations. My 4yo is quite a dreamer day & night) & we're never quite sure what will come out of her mouth!
