piece of history in a shade

We received new lamp shades from lush designs.
New designs features a piece of history from Wild West.
Buffalo Bill on horse back, his wife holding shot gun and prominent looking Sitting Bull. There's even Queen Vic! Apparently Buffalo Bill's Wild West came to England and performed for Queen Victoria's golden jubilee in 1887. I wonder how people's lives were like in those days...



We had small summer holiday in Alicante, Spain. The town had hint of Moorish influence, lots of beautiful old lightings and colours of interior inspired me with new ideas.

Friend of ours who moved there 2 years ago kindly let us stay. (at her apartment right in front of beach! with cute 70s flower canopy) we really admired the fact she moved there on her own, learned the language, set up a business and thriving.
she has been a great hostess too, feeding us great food & drinks made of fresh local ingredients. Food has been definitely the highlight, even coffee tasted amazing! I don't know why we can not get the same coffee over here. I love the coffee in London, Paris, and all the other cities, they are all different and lovely in their own way. but these coffee in Alicante really amazed me. I hardly make coffee at home but I will buy a coffee maker over the weekend so I will test if I can match Spanish standard with the beans I brought back.


new photos

I took some new photos of Washi Jewellery. simple jobs like this, I have been meaning to do for months and months... It's unfair to say...but it's true being working mum is tricky at times! I felt so good sorting it out with friend's help. now my style sheets and all necessary paper works are up to date. YES!
you can have a look more images from here. there are exclusive and more reasonable diffusion line necklaces.
