Wishing on Dandelions

It's the season of dandelions and who of us hasn't plucked one up, closed our eyes, and made a wish? Despite my mom's protest that they will just keep duplicating if I continue (even though I think dandelions are quite pretty!), I've made quite a few. Here are some on my mind:

I wish the wizarding world was real and I was in it.

J.K Rowling is a genius, and I don't think any other series has as much fun.


I wish everybody wore Scottish clothing on a day to day basis.

I love this girl.


I wish a guy would look at me like Jude looks at Lucy in the Across the Universe ending.

From 2:43 onwards…his face…my God. It just makes me cry—it is the sweetest thing ever. When he kind of looks like he wants to laugh and cry at the same time, but he’s just so so happy…And the edition of “She loves me, (yeah, yeah, yeah).” It’s just incredible.


I wish I had a tree house/room like any of the following:

Bex showed me this from visualize and I fell in love. I would love to do something similar to my room this summer.


I wish I could be the old glamorous feel of an actress in New York City or Paris.

I am always inexplicably reminded me of Curious Case of Benjamin Button (in my top 20 movies, by the way) and the feeling of performing in a city.
P.S watch this scene. I absolutely love it…the way that every little event is important and is domino affecting onto the other…ah, it’s just beautifully done.

More wishes to come...

But for now, may you have many encounters with many lucky dandelions,


P.S I've just gone over my 50th post! Don't quite know why, but it's exciting!

Ya, Horton Day was opening night, an dthat was just accidental. We changed "on the ___of may" every night to fit the night. On the sevententh of maay was a bit much for horton to handle though. I forgot to take pictures, but I'll see if I can scavenge some! I totally wished I was in the wizarding world too, I wish I had a jude too (he is so sweet), Erin Wasson has a tree house she lives in which is super cool!

Robin said...

I loved that.
I blow on them when ever I see them.

I believe in them.

When I was little, I always wanted to live in a dollhouse or secret tree house, and you are so right about J.K. Rowling. :)

Thanks for your comments!!!


Danielle said...

I need to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. That scene is so cool!

Catherine said...

These are such great wishes, especially the ones about Harry Potter and tree houses :) I'm obsessed with Harry Potter and I've always wanted a tree house...

Have a great day!

Lauren said...

These are the best wishes ever!

Frock Around the Clock said...

Not too much to ask for then.. Haha :) I want one of those tree houses! I would be quite happy to have any of them as my actual house. x

Becca Jane said...

such a cute post! I am with you on the scottish clothing and the treehouse!

Raez said...

dreamy! i also would enjoy being a wizard.(who knows, maybe it does exist and its just been told so people would think it was fake...)

and wow, who knew tree houses could be so awesome, great visuals indeed:):)

This was such a great post!! I immediately saved the pictures of that house into an inspo folder, I love it! xx

Ash Fox said...

how freakin awesome is 'across the universe'?!? it is one of my favorite films and was sooo underrated. awesome blog!

indigotangerine said...

our interests must be really similar or something because everything you said, i was like. Oh! I want that too! i have an obsession with Harry Potter, i think I always secretly imagined when I turned 11 i would get a letter from Hogwarts... Across the universe is one of my favorite movies, and that is one of my favorite scenes. I want to live in a tree house and that is my absolute favorite scene from Benjamin Button. Plus all the dandilions remind me of a dandilion fight i had with my friends and got about a million little peices of fluff tangled into my hair.

Cruz said...

Great pics, the wizarding world needs to be real asap.

Ania said...

Ha, my mum always tells me the same thing about dandelions ;) thanks for the tip - I'm gonna start practising that Scottish accent and one day...
I too am in love with HP, words cannot describe the brilliance of these books. I read the first one when I was 11 and remember secretly hoping for a letter to come...
+ that scene is beautiful, I got goosebumps :)
