A Saturday Project

I've gone without a pocket tissue holder for a while now since I misplaced my Fendi holder, which I got at a real bargain at their outlet in Florence a few years back.

Not anymore.

I've decided to make my own. I realized I didn't have much material to begin with so I had to make do with whatever I could find from my trusty albeit a lil' dusty craft box.

Staying true to my motto of "Keep it Simple" when it comes to designs (also an excuse to make up for my lack of creativeness :P), I spent a few hours of my Saturday, measuring, cutting, and sewing..

Hah, I can't even recalled when was the last time I held a needle. Lucky thing I still remember how to do my "Insang Pari" ("Blanket Stitch"). Thank you Kemahiran Hidup (Living Skills) subject in F3!

And voila, here's yours truly's new pocket tissue holder..100% handmade :)

With Eyes Closed

A tranquil Sunday just lying on the floor,
Feeling the coolness of the floor tiles against the skin,
the soft breeze from the ceiling fan gently caressing the face and playfully rustling the hair.
Inhaling the delicate scent of a Rose 4 Reines perfumed sachet.
Listening to the chirping of birds beyond the window under a cool, cloudy sky,
the cheerful cries of neighboring kids playing hide-and-seek,
with the occasional friendly barks joining in the fun..
And all away from the hustle and bustle of the traffic.

Some days should be enjoyed with eyes closed.

Peace, Tranquility, Serenity.
Refresh. Recharge. Reconnect.

Have a wonderful day, everyone!
