12 Green Dreams

Guest post by Cori Kindred

hello poppytalk readers! cori kindred here again, on this sunny, chilly day. so my boyfriend and i might be moving soon into a house (!) with a backyard (!!!). i haven't had a backyard in years, so i've been getting excited about how i'm going to decorate and fix it up.

first up: twinkle lights to add a sprinkle of magic.




next: a hammock so i can read or take a nap in the dappled sunshine.



or if i'm feeling really fancy, a hanging bed!




my dream studio: a glass treehouse



or this one: a tiny victorian cottage



and something a little bit more realistic: a pretty vintage wagon filled with succulents.





hope you enjoyed this tour through my dream backyard. i know i did!

These images have me longing for a backyard! I would definitely love having a hanging bed in the back to read books and take afternoon naps.

I absolutely love outdoor spaces! If only there were more than 2 months of nice weather in Vancouver to justify one . . .

Love the glass tree house, I always wanted a treehouse when I was a kid, and after seeing that picture I realize that I still do!

Muruska said...

Oh! I would like to decorate my house or atleast childs room like in fairytales, magic in the air all day long!

What lovely images! I've seen that hanging bed before and I want to die everytime I see it! But those sparkly lights are pretty fantastic too :)

Oh how I love hammocks. I've been looking for just the right one to hang in my backyard. Have fun decorating your new outdoor space!

I think that I have spent the night in the glass treehouse before with some friends. I remember the bridges in particular. If not that one, then one very similar. It was absolutely magical.

You're funny! Don't believe that your big dreams are any less realistic than that wagon filled with succulents! They just take a little longer to grow.....or do they? ;)
