I am dreaming of....

I love to read Interior magazines and Books, At Lintons there were so many books I wanted to buy. However I still have some difficulty ajusting prices between US and Downunder especially Books. I miss Amazon so very much. and I regret that I left most of my interior decorating books in CA(sigh~) Here are my lists of books I want to get.

Its bit foggy this morning. I am going to My little Princess school this afternoon as a guest speaker(smile). I need to talk about my generation, it will be fun. Here are some more photos from our little day trip.

This is the photo of a cafe at Lintons. Food was great and Coffee was so good.

I love this buddah with the ferns..

Wouldn't it be nice to have a green house like this big so you can enjoy it all year around.

More of knick- Knacks..

My Little princess, resting.. Loved this block bench..

Looks real don't you think? but they are all silk flowers.

Little Day Trip - part 1

My tooth drama is almost over thank you to friends who sent me get well wish. It was a pretty good winter day in Melbourne. My DH suggested we should go out .. so off we go... He told me he wants to check out Garden shop somewhere in Mt, Eliza( that is south of Melbourne near the ocean, for thoes who don't know where it is). My DH is interested in Gardening these days.. yep.. I have my own gardener, Lucky me.. (smile).. After 30mins driving from home. .. We arrived at a place called " Lintons Home and garden" Many of you in Australia might know which one I am talking about... It was my first time visiting there despite of many times of driving pass..
Here is the entrance of the Lintons.. I love the big pots and the trees..

we were looking for some good looking pots for our garden.. and found them.. but guess what??The price.. was..
the front small one is $1200.00
the back left medium one is $3000.00
and finally the bigest one is $4000.00 yikes..
and the girl between the pots..

More pots.. a lof of handsom ones...
The gift shop has so many french inspired goods.. I especially loved this daybed..

not to mention .. Linen covering and the cushions..

Linen apron and the bag.. cute,, don't you think??

Love these flower stand and the flowers.

I will upload more photos from our little day trip tomorrow..

Have a great morning, afternoon, evening..!!!

6 uninteresting things that MAKE ME HAPPY

I have been tagged by Leeann ; the lady behind of fabulouslyfrench one of my favourite blogs, I have been asked to write about 6 uninteresting things that make me happy so here we goes..

1. As I explained in my profile I love to make little peoples clothes, thanks to my princess. My little girl has so many pretty clothes. Just looking at her clothes make me happy.. and give me more inspiration..
2. I don't drink a lot coffee so whenever I get my coffee and a cake, I stare at them before I drink it, actually looking at a cup of coffee and a cake make me happier than drinking and eating..(smile)
3 . My new found happiness is to looking at newly done my hallway, how uninteresting thing is that.. but Make me so so happy..

4. followed by looking at my little princess clean and organized room with a new floor board..(LOL) what can I say.. it make me happy.
5. I've been collecting vintage patterns over the years, Looking at them time to time make me happy. I am so attracted to old stuff.. book, china, furniture.. etc.. etc..
6. Finally.. Doing Nothing make me happy time to time..(smile)
Thank you Leeann for the opportunity to sit down and think about How happy person I am...
so as the rules, I have to tag 6 person.. so here is the list...
Now you have to pass this on to 6 people that you think would like to play, all you have to do is link back to the person that gave it to you (namely me) and let the 6 you choose know they have been tagged...and tell 6 uninteresting things that make you happy
Happy Composing!! & Happy Friday.
