Glaceau SmartWater

My husband likes to drink this water.
Yes, I agree it is better tasty than others, price is also reasonable.
SmartWater comes in different bottle sizes.
However, I am going to show something different :)

I found on bottle that
a small witty way to remind people about recycling.
I only showed two of four that I saw.

Doily, my old hard work

Doily, my old hard work that made from
many pieces of flowers, leaves and circles.
I used Irish crochet techniques for a first time.
I don't remember how many of them I crocheted.
but it took 4 ... 5 month to crochet and sew all of them together.
It was a gift for my brother-in-law and his wife.

A Flower

Have you ever heard
of a flower that never needs
Water, soil, or sunshine?

A flower that stays in full bloom
Through summer and winter
Through good times and bad

A flower that rarely gets smaller,
growing endlessly.
A few lost petals,
A little droop,
but, without a doubt,
it will always regrow
into something more beautiful.

I have one of those.
I call it  Doily (Love).


Rainbow from nowhere ...

Rainbow ... Amazingly it was clear blue sky and one small fluffy white cloud that produced slight rain. And it was enough for rainbow. Of course sun was in right place and time. It was sunset time. I looked out of my window when I saw the rainbow. I quickly grab a camera. And snapped same pictures :) ).

What is the meaning of a rainbow?
Rainbows speak directly to our heart and soul, filling us with awe and energies all around us. Rainbows bring the promise that the trouble of today will surely come to pass, hold strong in your faith and vision and the rainbow will bring fresh beginnings and new prosperity.

Happy B-day, my dear friend!

Once upon a time, there was a French botanist by the name of Pierre Magnol (1638 – 1715).
He helped scientists determine that plants came in families and not just species.
Guess who magnolias are named after?
The Chinese began naming magnolias long before the 1600s.
What taxonomists and botanists call Magnolia officialis since the 1600s,
the Chinese have been calling hou po.
There seem to be as many symbol interpretations about magnolias as there are people who love magnolias:
  • In Victorian times, sending flowers was a discreet way of lovers sending messages to each other. Magnolias symbolized dignity and nobility.
  • In ancient China, magnolias were thought to be the perfect symbols of womanly beauty and gentleness.
  • In the American South, white magnolias are commonly seen in bridal bouquets because the flowers are thought to reflect and emphasize the bride’s purity and nobility.
