Hand-made decor.

I constantly improvising our home decor. or moving around the furniture setting to give us and our guests a refreshing feel every now and then. Yes... another task to keep myself even busier.

I appreciate hand-made stuff and I'd sew myself everything if I know how to! But since I am not, so I am glad there are so many artisans who knows so much about "embroidery"!! 

If you are looking for cute and unique handmade decoration, Monkey and Squirrel has very cute stuff for you.

This morning I took off an old beaded embroidery from a not-being-loved sweater and sew it on my leggings.

Isn't this embroidery the prettiest little thing!!

I'm definitely a fan of your home decor, tho that is already like almost a year ago. (^_^) I can see how much thought you put into each detail. Great idea to shop on etsy b/c it's going to be one-of-a-kind items.

As for DIY projects, I've been working on home-made Halloween costumes for both kids b/c both of their preschool/kindergarten requires it to be DIY. Can you believe it?! I suck at sewing but I've bit the bullet and have visited Michaels and Jo-Anns numerous times. LOL.

Btw, Alaia heels are always so fun to look at but the height of the heels are always too intimidating for me. So did you end up buying the gold lace up?

Yes, Betsy: you know, I am really impressed how people can be so deft about anything. ^^ I really like going to etsy just to see those magical work on vintage stuff turned... treasure!!

Man, you are super mom too. I'd say I wouldn't be willing to do whole DIY outfit for my kids...I would end of sleepless, restless,... painful and never going to finish the costumes. So,... I am very curious just what your little ones will be this year?!! Reveal?

Ah, I did end of getting that... I was talking to Izy this morning that I don't even know if the lace up goes all the way to calf or... well, I am kinda of an impulsive buyer so....let's just wait and see when I receive it. :)

How about you? Any temptation recently?

No temptations recently at all b/c I'm trying super hard to shop in my own closet. Of course I have to try very hard... Lol

Still proper, Fendi leather skirt!

I worn my Fendi skirt to the city for dinner last night. San Francisco's weather is perfect for wearing leather anything.... It is almost windy all the time around the bay and I find leather is the best shield for blocking out brutal wind in the city. I even like it better than wearing a trench coat.  

Over the years I acquired enough leather jackets, leather mini skirt and leather pants but I'm lacking long leather skirt in my wardrobe. Not only is the fact that a good looking long leather skirt is hard to come by but also a thought that it might be cumbersome to move around in it. Hum..... but you know what, all these uncertainty is redundant the moment I see Fendi 2015 fall/winter runway leather long skirt with pony hair. Ha~ the right moment comes with the right item, I am grabbing it. If you know which one I am talking about, you know I got myself a double-shield wind-proof skirt. lol.... As you can see I'm very into Fendi especially Monster collection at this moment. …

How Life is ... How You Respond to it?

After almost a year and a half hiatus, I am back writing my blogs again. There are a lot of memorable activities that happened and I recently moved to another house, which I can say without a doubt, is my dream house. It has a nice swimming pool, great landscapes, and a media room in the basement. I always feel unsettled at first when I move into a new place but once I have a vision of how I can make it my home, I'd start the remodel right away. You do everything you can to make yourself "comfortable" in every circumstance, right? 
     I am here at Reno now. Not for skiing, not for gambling, but for my girl's volleyball tournament. A lot of you didn't know I have a daughter who's going to be 13 this year and I am so proud of her unique talents. What do we call them?  iGeneration. The most precious years of their life: teenage years. They are mostly on their own, developing their personality, their existence, and identifying their self-worth. All we paren…
