Pink Roses {Feel Blessed, Happy and Lucky}

Next month we, Steven and I will be married for 8 years. That is on 21st July exactly.

I honestly say that I am the luckiest person to have met Steven 9 years a go. Mainly because one year later when we were dating I had an emergency major aortic repair surgeries and was hospitalized for 2 months. I remember how devastated I was in the hospital bed not knowing if Steven still wants to be with me. I had no family in the US but him. My parents came but Steven came to visit me every single day and took care of all medical paper works and medication for me. 

Long story short; he supported me all the way through until I gained my health back. One year after I released from the hospital, he proposed to me. We got married July 21st 2005. I was very happy.

It has been a very happy 8 years. 

Since the surgeries 8 years a go; my outlook toward life has changed a little. I no longer as ambition as I used to be. I enjoy the simple things I have, my simple life  in New York and what's day to day life has given to me. As long as I am healthy and with Steven beside me, I feel safe and very happy.


How Do I Love Thee?

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, -- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! -- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

I really love these little jars! I think I got them at a yard sale in Delray, Florida. Can anyone tell what are those for originally?

Happy Friday Everyone!
Thank you for stopping by!

Coffee Filter Roses {DIY}

I had so much fun making these coffee filter roses for the past few days. I never knew that it was going to be so pretty. I found the tutorial on Pinterest {here}. 

Now my roses never dies and always stay beautiful. The good thing about the coffee filter roses is you can make them in any color you want. I am going to make many more with different colors to see how they will look like. They are also pretty to give as presents to a friend, mother in law, sister, or even your own mother on mother's day. 

I am not going to give you my own tutorial ;  you will see a complete tutorial on a link highlighted above and below. This is where I learned on how to make these pretty coffee filter roses. 

I love photograph flower so much and play around with these coffee filter roses to be photographed was so much fun. You can see that I displayed them with different props and elements.

I love water color and pattern/shape so much that I combined them together to create a display. I wish I had a bigger wall so I can display my water color art with these coffee filter roses but the truth is I do not have a good size wall to create a display I want. But none the less,  I managed creating a mini wall for these pretty roses and my water color art. 

I found this pretty white vase at a thrift store {outdoor} here in Delray, Florida for USD 3.00. When I saw it on the table sat with other stuff that people ignored mostly; I could not resist on having it. I was surprised {with a big smile on my face} when she told me it was only USD 3.00.

For those of you who are interested in making these pretty roses on your own please check Wedding Bee
Her coffee filter roses are beautiful and that is where I got the inspiration to make these pretty roses. 

Good luck Everyone and Happy Wednesday!
