Imaginary shopping

When browsing around on Etsy reality leaves me some times. Looking at the wonderful things made with love and care I loose track of what I need and what I actually would wear - I just start dreaming. It's like entering another world for a moment. I get lost in texture, luster, colours and it all melts together and I am in a setting where home is never left without this beautiful top hat. In the evening there are parties and no dress is too elaborate! Oh - if only! I make Treasuries on Etsy when I dream too, I called it "Have a Ball".
The other day I looked up some quotes about dreams and there are differnt takes on this state of mind.

The only thing that will stop you from fulfilling your dreams is you.
said Tom Bradley.

While Oscar Wild, not surprisingly, had a more down to earth look on dreamers:

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.

I think I like this the best:

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

- Harriet Tubman

Keep dreaming my friends!


  1. Lovely things!
    I also get lost on Etsy, Zibbet, Felt, and Artfire. I always make sure I'm not in a hurry to do anything else before setting out on my online adventure :-)

  2. It is so easy to get lost on Etsy.. hours go by like minutes.

  3. I really like the first and last quotes Eline, and I believe you should always dream.
    Ofcourse browsing on etsy comes a close second :)

  4. Eline,

    I stopped by your blog because I was looking to see who liked running and environmental issues. I noticed what I think is a mistake in your introduction text. The language states "I hope you find somethings you like to read about..." I think you mean either "some things" or "something". Just thought I'd mention it. I do like the quote on dreams too.



  5. Surfing through the offerings on Etsy is really fun! Now I must check out those other places mentioned by JacBer above. More treasures!
