Fresh Friday

I just adore this lovely arrangement of peonies. I just love how the bright pink peonies pop against the aqua blue mason jar. And yes, Happy Friday! =)

Reminiscence of Summer

My, oh my, how quickly the days are passing by these days! I can't believe August is almost here..........

Once in a while, I love to gaze at these amazing photos because for me, they capture the quintessence of summer. I love the fiery of the sun's glare, blasting its heat waves at you, just itching to caress you. I love gulping down tart and fresh-squeezed lemonade, so refreshing you can feel each drop tingling down your throat. But most of all, I love the scintillating sunset, woefully waving its goodbyes as the wind softly whispers its cool breath.

Delectable Delights

Don't these decadent delicacies just make your mouth water? I saw these images on Sarah Kaye and just absolutely had to save them because the desserts just look so yummy. ;p I hope you don't get too much of a craving for desserts by my post. =)

I love the decoration and display of the cupcakes, from the dainty details of the flower petals to the blue-pink-green icing is just beautiful.

Those raspberries look so yummy in this photo - so plump and juicy that I can imagine them squishing in my mouth.

This is simply a breathtaking arrangement. Not to mention, the tiny bite-sized cookies look adorable.

The teapot and cup cookies are so creative and lovely.

The first and last cupcakes remind me of the Chinese embroidered umbrellas.

Ohhhhh look at the cream.......

Calming Rooms

Wow, it's been awhile since I've been on here - almost two weeks! Anywho, it's going to be busy from here on out. I have a lot of family and friend social functions for the rest of this month and then next month I will be busy moving into my new apartment, and then school will start. I don't want to go back to school yet for I haven't even fully enjoyed my summer yet!

But for right now, I'm loving these lovely peaceful rooms. They're simple and calming - slowing down my hectic days.

I love the the plain white walls with minimal furnishings - sometimes less is really more. The room feels like it's a cloud floating in the sky.

I love the splash of floral in an otherwise all-white room. There is just such a tranquilizing peacefulness as sunlight softly streams in. I think I would definitely fall into a deep slumber sleeping in this lovely room ;p

This room is so lovely. I especially adore the black chandelier hanging up because it adds a stark contrast with the soft muted colors in the room. The wood-beamed ceiling are also another lovely touch - adding a small architectural elegance to the room.

I adore these white and blue pieces adorning white rooms. They simply transform a plain one into one emanating regalness and elegance.
