I just got home from the most relaxing 3-day vacation ever.
Finally, time for our anticipated vacation came. A wonderful stay at Puerto Galera with good friends. Though I've visited Galera once before, I didn't really enjoy as we chanced upon the crowded, noisy peak season crowd. This time around we picked a date when the island didn't expect much people. Beautiful.
This was our first day at the island and the beautiful stretch of white sand on the beach. We took time to laze around, hiding from the... read more »
Our breakfast nook off the kitchen has a glass top round table. We love the table because visually it doesn't take up any space and the view out the window is actually what we see.Our dilemma lies in the fact that we have rectangular placemats that are perfect for any other table but don't actually look right on the round table. We have searched in the kitchen, household, and department stores in our area and believe it or not, have not been able to find any placemats that would fit a round table.Our sea... read more »

We weren't going to go out on Valentine's Day, we were planning to just make dinner and ya know, eat it, but John had a leftover Christmas giftcard and we decided to use it! It turned out to be really nice, we only waited to get a table for 30 minutes, and even though poor boyfriend got really sick the night before we had a lovely time.
When we got back to my apartment, I had a nice surprise waiting for him. I made a heart garland and each heart (there were 21, since he's turning 21 on Monday) said som... read more »
You will forever and always be my Sweet Valentine.How do you and your special Valentine spend the evening? Do you go out to a nice restaurant, purchase a beautiful card or exchange gifts? Do you send roses or a bouquet of balloons?DH and I used to do all that. In fact, we still do to a certain degree. One year we might go out and splurge and another year, like this year, we will stay in. (Staying within the full-disclosure guidelines, DH and I will celebrate with friends at a restaurant the day before).I... read more »
For the month of February, I wanted a centerpiece that delicately reflected love and femininity. I decided to go with a white pom-pom sitting on a candlestick holder, and a simple heart garland for some extra flair. Once again, I decided to incorporate the pages of an old bookinto my decor, and I'm so pleased with the way it turned out. I took another trip to our local used bookstore, and found an old book of love stories (originally published in 1929!) for just $5. It hurt my heart a little to destroy t... read more »

Чудесная идея, как можно (внезапно!) кого-то порадовать. Такие вот очаровательные подвески- коробочки для конфет- монпансье. Можно украсить такими дверные проемы ( главное, чтоб не мешали), или подвесить рядом с компьютером, или еще где-нибудь. Как говорится, нужна только бумага, клей и ваше горячее желание обрадовать кого-то:).1. возьмите квадратик цветной, или узорчатой бумаги, согните пополам по горизонтали и по вертикали, распрямите, чтобы остались сгибы.
2 переверните квадратик и дважды согните по ... read more »
