{ winter wonderland } November 29, 2009

A dash of gold in a blanket of silvery sheen reminds me of twinkling Christmas lights in a snowy city. Sadly, our summery island has no snowflakes teasing our faces as we saunter down the streets, buying gifts for our loved ones and meeting long-time friends for that warm cuppa tea and coffee. But movies kept that image alive within me and one day, I hope to spend Christmas in a place where there is snow. And for all you lovelies out there in the falling snow, keep warm and take care. I sure hope it’s not so wintry that it hurts.


These creations mix gold and silver color, and the results can be pretty amazing. Some allow you to jumble girlish charm with boyish chic, spruce up that midnight party glamor with simple allure, or even return to the simplicity of everyday life, noticing things that you have not. What’s life without taking a moment to appreciate life’s little wonders and small gestures of kindness, right?

Another rainy day…recently, the weather is so erratic – a constant reminder of how our Earth is suffering on a daily basis. Next month’s posts are dedicated to our Earth in conjunction with Earth Day on April 22. I’ll share more in the next post. Remember Earth Hour. Do your part. Every small effort counts. Even if you think you are just 1 person.


Well, back. I keep on humming this song. I do like the lyrics.

B.J. Thomas – Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head lyrics


I love rainy days. Of course, when I’m not out and especially at night or in the wee hours of the morning. The smell is heavenly and the sound is so therapeutic when writing or creating pieces.


When I’m out, I’m one of those people who seldom carry an umbrella. I keep losing them! My excuse: my bag is very heavy already. And thus, these brolly-themed pieces allow my tongue-in-cheek reply whenever my friends question the whereabouts of my umbrella. “See! It’s here!”
