Dream A Little Dream

Dream a Little Dream by Stephanie Corfee

i made this little watercolor painting today. i just love this little song. i think it is the most nostalgic lilting tune and sleepy lyric ever. How can you not feel hopeful singing or hearing words like this;

Say nighty-night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me
While I’m alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me………

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me”

Many singers have recorded it, but my favorite, simple and beautiful version by The Mamas & The Papas can be heard here.

Dream a Little Dream of Me” is a song, from c.1931, with music by Fabian Andre and Wilbur Schwandt[1] and lyrics by Gus Kahn

 

New! – Decor Inspired by Art

 

i’ve been dreaming of a little girl’s room inspired by my Mermaid’s Waterfall painting ever since the last stroke of paint had dried.

Here is a little collection of decor items found on etsy and the web that i’d love to use in my fictitious room. The metallic gold swooshes in the painting are my favorite bit to pull out!

i’m also envisioning loosely woven linen type curtains with a bit of coral fisherman’s net swag at the top and some driftwood inspired, weathered furnishings with a touch of white paint. ahhh…girls. a whole different kind of inspiration than my boys (who are cool too!) – just different. : ) (click the collage to enlarge)

1. ombré ruffle bedspread by urban outfitters

2. sandcastle pillow by gypseanurse on etsy

3. sea urchin candleholder (flameless candle for a kiddo of course!) by beautifuldetailswed on etsy

4. capiz shell chandelier by Lou Lou & Company on etsy

5. ocean plait nautical manila rope mat by mystic knotwork on etsy

6. starfish drawer pulls by juxtapositionsc on etsy

7. sea coral in aqua pillow by gypseanurse on etsy

8. Nate Berkus gold sequin throw pillow – sadly, a discontinued product from HSN, but possibly DIY?

9. cast iron round mermaid mirror by carol & andrew on etsy (choose your own color!)

i will continue to build inspiration boards around my paintings to give ya’ll my insight and vision for how the art might fit into or inspire a room!
