  1. Gingerbread House Cookies

    January 14, 2010 by barbara

    I am so delighted to see this fantastic idea from Not Martha – Tiny Gingerbread housed perched on the edge of your mug.   I love sipping some hot chocolate or coffee.  Having a cute gingerbread house perched on my mug is just fabulous.  Ain’t she creative?  I wonder if she sells these Gingerbread Houses.  If she does, I know I will be ordering many of them…perhaps one for each day.  Yes, of course I would need some dieting pills later on but that’s alright. They are just too cute and yummy to ignore.

  3. Beautiful DragonFly Accent Light

    January 14, 2010 by barbara


    During our previous vacation to the Big Apple, we stayed at a very nice hotel.  I still remember the time we had our coffee at the patio of the hotel.  The view was superb and the atmosphere was just wonderful.  The patio was beautifully decorated with flowers, stainless steel pinwheels, butterfly vases and dragonfly windchimes.  As soon as I saw these Dragonfly Accent Light, it brought me back to the time we spent in New York.   These solar-powered Dragonfly Accent Lights are indeed charming and eco-friendly.   They will automatically light up at dusk and burn brightly for 12 hours.  A nice addition to any home.  Ok, now I am still thinking about New York.  I better look up on travel new york again.

    December 28, 2009 by barbara

    I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Christmas celebration.  While hubs was fiddling with the faucets in the bathrooms during the holidays, I spent my time watching A Chip Off The Old Block online.  I enjoy watching this comedy a lot because I like 60’s fashion.  Also my favourite actors and actresses are in this 20-episode drama.  They are Ron Ng, Myolie Wu and Shirley Yeung.  I have watched 8 episodes so far.  What about you? Are you a fan of A Chip Off The Old Block too?  Next drama on my list is The Watchdog’s Tale.  I just can’t wait.
