A while back I wrote and asked what people's deep dark looked like. Now I'd like to know what a safe place would look like. So I'm proposing a
safe house here at the site. There are no decorating rules and the house is expandable to fit all needs and wants. Think of it in terms of "if you could
run away to whatever you wanted, what would it look like?".
To start, and because my miscarriage happened in the winter, I want a fireplace with lots of crackling wood (we don't have a fireplace and used the satellite TV fireplace channel as a surrogate at Christmas) with a big cozy love chair that you melt in that's big enough for dh and me. I also want an ocean view on one side and a field and forest view on another. I want kittens gamboling on the carpet to make me smile and a big cuddly purring cat in my lap. Something wonderful is baking in the kitchen and there's a chocolate fondue fountain there to dip my bananas and strawberries in. My bedroom is a 4 poster bed with a feather bed and down comforter and is decorated in jewel tones.
Anyone else want to join me? Bring your own food, views, and decor. It'll be a bit of a patchwork house, but it'll be filled with love and good company. There are unlimited bedrooms so you can retreat to your privacy when you need to.
Hope to see you there,
