The shed that dreams are made of

Last night I went to bed much earlier than Andrew and in those intervening hours I slept fitfully, waking often and then entering back into the same dream. The dream was about a shed, a shed of wonder, of majesty, one that engendered awe, joy and comfort in equal measure. This is the shed to end all sheds........

I have always loved the idea of my shed looking something like this from the outside....modest but adequate for my humble allotmentering needs :) In my dream it was very similar to this only a little dirtier but shockingly, pale grey with a grey door, white window complete with window box (red flowers and ivy) and a proper slate roof though without a look out bit at the top. (Well done google images for finding this one)
Inside, naturally there was a slate floor area were one took ones work boots off and dirty clothes and slipped into something more comfortable. From here there was a doorway into the main body of the shed, eh, viola.... Sainte Chapplle.
....only with the carpet from our bedroom which is cosy, red and grey stripes.

Over by the window was the cocktail bar where I was sitting with a notebook and pen writing down my very important thoughts whilst drinking a pink cosmopolitan (the lion was not there but this is the best photo I could find, naturally my bar was more swanky but still brown and cream with much fine smelling leather and candles).

 .... Maggie was lounging on her own sofa by the wood burning fire

(excuse the poor substitute for the gorgeous Maggie - this pup is a little odd looking..)

At the back left, there was a door which opened onto a medium sized room (say the size of a ballroom) where in my gardeners where busy tending to the seedlings and sharping up all the tools :)

A pleasant little dream.

Oh and I have to share this for if my imagination had been this good, I would most certainly had dreamt up one of these for the winter days. However, it was eternally spring/summer in my world anyway :)

Happy Valentines' Day for tomorrow - I LOVE YOU XXX


  1. Maggie is now EXPECTING her sofa, since you've shown it to her, and she tried it out. Yes please!

  2. Such a pretty little shed! I wish I could transport it here, we've been building a shed for the last two weeks, from scratch, and we're exhausted already. Ours is for goats though...but I rather like the idea of adding a cocktail bar, we might need one by the time we're done! ;)

  3. What a wonderful gardener's tardis of a shed!
    Happy Valentine's Day! Flighty xx

  4. Happy Valentine's Day, Carrie! May I have the lion for my shed, please. If my shed ever becomes luxurious I shall have a globe-shaped drinks cabinet, I think. Steve, Liverpool

  5. The opposite of Narnia then - sounds good to me! I may let autumn in too (for the lovely leaf colours) but just skip winter

  6. This was a fun walk through your dream. The pictures were great, especially the last one:~)

    I hope you get the shed of your dreams. Well, with a few compromises given the pictures!

    Happy Valentine's day to you:~)

  7. I have an inkling that Andrew's dream shed would be a little different ;)

  8. Fabulous! - Law of Attraction in motion perhaps? Mouse
