    My dear friend’s husband is turning 40 next month.  My friend will be throwing a birthday party for him and also inviting some close friends and family members.  He loves music and would sometimes join his friends at the local bar for some jamming sessions.  My friend is getting him a moog synthesizer for his coming birthday.  I am thinking of getting him this really cute Crosley Cruiser Portable Turntable from UrbanOutffiters.

  6. Recycled Party Decor

    June 5, 2013 by barbara

    I was blog-hopping last night and when I was at Design Sponge, I read about its wonderful party decorations idea.  I love it to bits.  Design Sponge talked about using the things that we already have in the house and recycle them as party decorations.  It just super simple and not to mention eco-friendly too.  Just use flyers or magazine pages to create some tassels or newspapers as buntings.  Then decorate them with some washi tapes or colourful markers.  Awesome right?    I wonder what I can create with some t-nuts which I have plenty at home. Can’t wait for the next party so that I can let my creative juices flow.

  9. A Busy Weekend

    May 18, 2013 by barbara

    Over the weekend, we attended a housewarming party as well as an 8 year old birthday party. Yeah it was a pretty busy weekend for everyone in our household. We had fun at the housewarming bbq party. The host even serenaded the guests with some songs on his electric bass. Music was great because the host just bought some new dr strings from musicians friend.  We also had a swell time at the kid’s birthday party and the highlight of the day was when everyone was given some frozen delights – Zipzicle Pop.  They are so good especially on a hot day.  I had a lot of these when  I was a kid.  Sure brings back some good memories.
