Brand New Start...

Indeed...

Isn't it amazing to have a brand new --- "every little thing in life"? Am I rinsed or what? But, hey! Pope Francis had been in his Asian journey and He was in The Philippines for 5 days. A BIG applause...

It was IMPRESSIVE, for being The Philippines, known as one of the most critical area in ASEA. I can tell you, my dear folks, that although, I live more than half of my life in Sweden, I am still very proud, to say, I am a true blooded Filipina. YeeeY! Anyways, it was a great pleasure and honor for the whole  country and I am hoping that the great Papal visit will be an eye opener, his words of wisdom and humanity applies in every heart of the Filipino people. Mabuhay...

I don't have signature dishes today because even our Pope hesitated to ate in a proper manner, when He visited the devastated Tacloban...

So, my table is as simple as it is...
I started with my forgotten tablecloth... just loving the embroidery.
I covered it with a lace-y cloth for a more romantic touch.
My Christmas present for myself... Coventry fine porcelain. Heart them.
I purchased a set of 6 and was sad, I could grabbed for 8... hope I can find more.
Of course, more angles, for you to see the simple beauty...
B4 I forgot, I gathered elements that I feel, it fit to my dishes...
See my lamp? It almost the same apart from brownish in color...

BTW, I have a little project that I am working and have to share with you the starting...
Remember, I went to baking school last Fall? Anyhow, I learnt lots of  tricks and tips on how to make sugarpaste flowers and etc. Here are my new babes. I was experimenting my new cake recipe that I call "Chocoffee". It came out delicious and I will post it next time. So, hope you drop by once again.

I am joining Marty's party today:
Thank You Kathryn for the great party too...
Thanks Susan for hosting one of my oldest meme...

Enjoy your day, my beautiful World...



SS2 After the Holiday Season

Colds strikes!!!

Unfortunately, the whole family (I said, whole family), from the oldest to the toddlers, got sick since Christmas, New Year and now, Three Kings, it is me, who catch it. It's just colds though but still...
I am home from work and looking around my BoX is not funny when I wanted to sort out some of the Christmas stuffs that are still not packed. They're few of them. But having an almost 39 degree fever wasn't funny. So be it...

Here are some bits and pieces... 
Passed by Sta. Eugenia Catholic church b4 hunting my new pillowcases...
 
 Grandma's (my) chair... love to sit here when Lil Missy Noomi visit us.
I am loving my new pillowcases...
 A new project was to changed the candle to a lampshade... it works (maybe) LoL*_*
Sober foyer... I don't know what to do with this as of now.
Seems I am missing both my daughter (back to university dorm) and granddaughter...
Poor driveway but who care? I catch a some crispy shots of shadows, right?

Hope everyone is in the best of everything. Keep your hearts in place, stay humble and be kind.

Happy SSS2 to one and all...
Njoy every shadow shots my friends...

Happy WeekEnd.
