Texture Tuesday


This week at Texture Tuesday is all about dreams.  For my image I used Kim's aurora texture for two layers and I also used her Dream brushes.  

I chose this image of a hydrangea flower because it reminds me of Cape Cod and the ocean.  It is by the ocean where I feel at peace and able to dream about my future.  Some of my future is wrapped up in a house by the ocean.  At that home I picture a sea shell driveway lined with beautiful hydrangeas of all different varieties....oak leaf, lacecap and mophead.  Some day I would like to be the 'inn keeper' of 40 M.  In my mind 40 M will be a place where people can come and seek serenity, solitude, peace and happiness. It will be a safe harbor for the tired and the weary.  It will be a home away from home for families who need to be by the ocean to unwind and spend quality time together.  I picture myself polishing the fireplaces and furniture before each new arrival and baking cookies and muffins for our weary travelers.  It will be a haven for all who come.  Watching over it all from a distant place will be my beloved parents.... smiling down on all that we have achieved, proud.  This is my dream. 

Peace!

I love your texture and the story behind it. I too love the idea of having home be a safe haven....the kind of place you breathe a sigh of relief as soon as you walk in. Hope your dream comes true!
