I think I must have had a low-grade fever last week. My dreams were mostly those kind that go round and round with no story, no imagination, just a regurgitation of what I'd been doing – mostly gluing little bits of paper – in an endless loop. I know I'm feeling better now because the other night I dreamed I was in a town near a harbor, in a tall, wood-frame building with stairs around the outside, and later a bunch of ladies in ruffled dresses were having a party. It was fun, and I can't wait to see where I'll go tonight! I love dreams, but then I'm fortunate not to have bad dreams very often.
I used to work with someone who said that she didn't usually dream, and when she did she didn't like it. She was a very irritating woman.
Now the clothes, and link-ups to parties with ladies in ruffled dresses. Well, maybe ladies in ruffled hats.

Although I don't have many hats, the weather is right to pull this one out again (previously seen here) for Hat Attack! Since the old post with this hat, I took the little button off the back so the hat sits higher again, like it's supposed to. Come on over to the Style Crone's place to see some fabulous chapeaux, and a video starring the SC herself!
The hat has a herringbone tweed, and I added the crocheted flowers and buttons. Toss in a corduroy jacket and dress it with a silk scarf and you've got a Texture Salad! Isn't that a great prompt for 52 Pick-me-up? Come on over and see what everyone else has mixed up!

I couldn't get decent color when I took these photos (damn taupe walls!) and the weather outside was, well, monsoonal. So I ended up just turning the photos to black and white, which highlights the texture, right? It makes them almost look dreamlike, except that I dream in color - except for that one time.
I've noticed that my dreams seem to revolve around certain settings. I often walk through cityscapes with hills, or sometimes just individual buildings. Quite often there are large social gatherings, so my dreams the other night I covered them all! Do these settings seem typical? What do you dream about?
