sweet sister

I happen to have three sisters and today happens to be my dear sweet sister Mary's birthday.
 We both share a passion for hand made artisanal objects. 
This is the second time this week, I have posted hand made beeswax candles.
Clearly, I have a problem.
I want to make a chocolate cake and use these lovely beeswax candles on top.  You can find the candles over here at my latest obsession, herriott grace.   With each passing year and day, I love simpler celebrations with hand made things and special wishes that can't be bought.  Well, yes, some things can be bought, but then there are the things that are home made that are more, well more special.  Made with love.
May all your wishes be simply sweet and full of love.  Happy Birthday dear sister Mary.

Every good blog has two features, they have a very good topic and you see lot of good comments. Its blogging that has made me know new things everyday. I absolutely sure that people in this world have come closer in their personal world. There so many things working for a blog and the topic. If you get a chance pop up by my page, maybe you would like wedding pearl jewelry.You can visit our fresh water pearl earrings. mother of pearl bracelet have good quality.Its just a flat world now because of blogs like this one, I appreciate it.

Unfortunately, my sister and I live miles apart but we text everyday. I think I would prefer to be there with those candles and that cake.
Her son cooked her a fab dinner last night....

Welcome home from Paris~

Cherry Su-
Thanks, how did you know I also love sweet pearls.

Well, after nearly losing all my blog, I had to re-vamp it....and I just keep simplifying, reduce, reuse and re-cycle....ha ha
Happy weekend~
