found this moon cake tin can from my cousin's storage

though i felt bad, i never tasted the moon cake, i was glad she let me have this, as i have multiple ideas what to do with it...

instead of sleeping in the storage, it's now displayed in my counter top, as storage for this little confectioneries, or it can be a trinket storage...

cross stitching i made for mom

Procrastination is taking a toll on me. I found out that  my unfinished cross stitching projects in the storage has found new denizens: termites! yaiks!

My SIL introduced me to cross stitching in 1993. i was hesitant because i’m sewing lots of baby stuffs, then. when our singer sewing machine broke down, i had the chance to do these simple projects…

a very simple project i gave to my mom

my mom's favorite

Jesus' face in silhouette. mom was in awe when i finished this one.

my work stills hangs above mom's altar...

surely, i missed my mom, who appreciates those simple cross stitches…i am missing the hoops and the needles, too.

Blue Monday: old and new seat

MellowYellowMondayBadge

i am sharing today at MELLOW YELLOW MONDAY and BLUE MONDAY the new look of our family room…

before we bought the new sofa set below, i knew i had to place these old country-style seating pieces here, instead of selling them as what other friends keep telling me. i love the contrast of the mahogany floor rug against the dark wood pieces accentuated by a blue painting on the wall, the blue towering jar on the side, and, few hints of small yellows as decors.

i’ve been eyeing for a new sofa for some months now, and when luck came knocking in…i grabbed this brown/ecru seater

SOLD!!!

my only concern now is…the blue curtains which i patiently sewed in time for the holidays became alienated with the newest arrival in our home :))) the only thing…THE RUBY NETBOOK SEEMS TO JIBE IN THE AREA…isn’t it?

Linking this post to RUBY TUESDAY, as well…

Christmas wish list

For the longest time, i haven’t had list for things that i wanted for Christmas, it’s more than enough for me that my kids had everything they’ve wished/asked for during Christmas season. Those things that i ever wanted, be it personal things, like shoes, blouses, i would make it a point to buy them during off-season, because  i always hated to buy my personal stuffs when most people were cramming to buy on the holidays.

However, when it comes to things around the house, be it appliances or fisher and paykel washing machines for sale, or home fixtures,  or a roman floating clock, perhaps…sometimes i wished i had my wish lists be realized before each year draws to an end

AND…as i always believed…wishes do come true…

What’s left on my wish list? I would be glad if i could have sets of these printed sheer curtains for the three rooms in the house. I made new curtains out of old sheers/fabrics for the living room. I think i’ve been good all these times, would Santa mind giving me those sheer curtains?
