{ dedicated to love } January 21, 2010

 

What’s your love story? I bet we all have different ones. And sometimes, many and not just one (I’m not promoting infidelity. So please read on…). Love keeps you warm, keeps you alive, and keeps you hopeful. Thus, you need to love yourself too.

 

Sometime ago, a friend asked me, “What is love?”. A big question, and a difficult one to answer by little me. I think, generally, love is when you share an important part of yourself with someone. It may only be a part, and not the whole, as we ourselves may not know what our whole is like. With this, I think love takes many forms – Father and child, parent and child, husband and wife, siblings, friends, lovers, work partners, and one-sided admiration. The word is ‘share’, meaning ‘give and receive’, and not ‘taking’ all the time. Give selflessly without contemplating and calculating what you will receive in return. Receive without guilt, without taking it for granted, and with heartfelt gratitude and humility.

 

This Valentine’s Day, celebrate love. Not just BF-GF love, husband-wife love, but the people whom you love, and who love you.

 

Dedicated to the many kinds of love…

===================
Loved you yesterday,
Love you still,
Always have, always will.
===================

And thank you for loving me and pling ♥

{ skeleton keys } November 14, 2009

 

Remember the joy when you received your 1st set of keys to the house as you turn of age? Or the excitement on the vast possibilities and future jubilation when you turn the keys to your new home? Or sweet nostalgia as you handled the keys to a very special box where memories and precious things are kept? Keys mean so much…a place of security, a home you call your own, or something you want to keep secret and only you would know and understand what the contents mean to you.

 

These skeleton key necklaces are a continuation of my obsession with them – their simple beauty, or for some, their extremely intricate details. Popular in the late 1800s, these keys conjure images of vintage furniture, classical homes, Gothic churches and antiqued chests. The possibilities of imagination are endless when the old (the key necklaces) and the new (your outfit) co-exist in fashion and style.
