Happy Long Valentine / President's Day Weekend!

A friend forwarded me this image of the sky in Bhutan, Himalaya... what a wonderful phenomenon! They say that the sky looks like this only on holy days... I am definitely adding this place in my bucket list. Maybe I'll get lucky enough to see such a spectacular sky too!

Happy Valentine's day to all!

Monday Centerpiece Series

Monday. Some of my Mondays are good. But some are bad. Some Mondays, I just need a really bad dose of Monday Blues cure. So, what's better than to start a Monday with looking at pretty centerpieces? I think I'm gonna start off the week with Monday centerpiece alternative from now on. So, make sure you tune in every Monday :)

Here's the first one for the series that I found on Southern Living. My goodness, what a difference a nice centerpiece brings to the dinner table. A good centerpiece can be a conversation starter at an awkward dinner table, an eye pleaser for a sore Monday, an appetite enhancer for a hangover, and mood booster for just about everything else...

I have a small garden at home. I have begonias, roses, gerber daisy, wildflowers, and other kinds of flowers that I don't know the name of. I like to bring them in when they bloom, but they don't always look good as a centerpiece because sometimes I'd only have one single rose that bloomed. What a great idea to stick the odd flowers into the colorful Oasis Rainbow Foam. I'm definitely gonna try to make them... someday. someday but soon! :)

Chalk Board

I must say, I've been soooo obsessed with chalkboards lately... Did you know there's a spray pain that you can buy that transforms most hard surfaces to chalkboard? There's plenty of selection out there, but here's one in particular that I had my eyes on: magnamagic

Wouldn't it be super cool to have a kitchen like this?
