This clearly is not a well thought out project. Rather it is a spur of the moment one, exactly salvaging a packaging box just before putting it in trash - kind of effort. But it is definitely a lovely one, because I am sure you wouldn't guess what it is made of, if I didn't tell you. So please meet my rescue trays here.

Every year when summer approaches,plants and home gardens become high priority.Since the last few years, it is terrariums that are all the rage.It isn’t surprising when one considers the beauty and character of most terrarium plants, such as succulents and cacti. But as pretty as they look, these individual plants also tend to be expensive and are delicate in nature. So I figured, why not give the traditional terrarium a cost-effective twist? One that is friendly enough for busy peeps and even those that consider themselves as having a black thumb.

In today's edition, I have an easy, customised recipe box that I made for a dear friend. In today's digital world I am not sure how many of us really use good old hand written recipes, but if you are an inspired cook or have an inspiring cook as my friend, then this is for you or them. If there is anything as charming as those hand-me-down, frailed pieces of paper with your favorite recipes on them, it is the food you made with the recipe itself .So here is how I tweaked a regular raw box into a marbled pretty one.

We are at a house hunting phase and I have been seeing a lot of houses. One thing that I have noticed is how rare it is to see modern architecture and decor in this part of Virginia. If at all I saw any modern design, they were condos and apartments. Not single family houses or townhomes. It is not that I have seen it all by now, but as much as I have seen in real and in the real estate sites, 90% of them are anything but modern.

It is that time of the year again, when Red, White and Blue are not just colors any more. They mean, pride, honour, courage, love and peace. Every year I plan on making something to celebrate these feelings for our little girl, but the long holidays, festivity, vacation - all contribute to being busy and we end up going for fireworks and be done with it. Not this time.
