Little Heart

A thousand sighs
One little heart
Shaken but unbroken.

Round n' Round


Going round n' round
like in a merry-go-around
Head spinning, mind dizzy
no way to get out of the circle of madness
It gets faster and stops then
picking up speed again
going round n round like a top!

So what type am I?

I never truly realised until today that 80% of the time I've been given the 'teddy bear' greeting cards. Strange I didn't know I was the cuddly type. Oh yes I'm the touchy feely type but cuddly, eh?
Here are few 'teddy bear' samples... Given by different people on different occasions but with one striking similarity. Happy cuddling! 
Cheers!

Of Garlands and Elegance


I somehow seem to have a certain adoration for Victorian fashion. Interestingly, in Victorian England no party dress was complete without a garland of flowers wrapped elegantly around the head throughout a profusion of curls.


I could wear one to every occasion, in every season. But I'll need a fresh supply of flowers quite frequently and also learn how to make a garland, seems easy but knowing the technique is always helpful .One plus, I'd smell of flowers without having to wear perfumes! Awesome much?

Here I found five simple steps to make a headpiece. Enjoy!


1. Allow the flowers to stand in a preservative solution in a cool place for several hours.
2. Measure a piece of floral wire to fit the size of the persons’ head. Allow a little extra at each end. Coiled wire is better for head garlands, because it takes a circular shape. Make a
hook and eye at the ends of the wire. Bind the wire with stem wrap floral tape.
3. Wire and tape the individual flowers and leaves. 
4. Tape the individual flowers and leaves to the taped wire.
5. Add ribbon streamers down the back.
