Have visited some of my fave blogs and re-looked those lovely inspirational pictures. Have visited The Old Painted Cottage which featured the house of DustyLu. I really love it.

This is my daughter's bedroom, I haven't decorated much here. The curtain is coming soon and I have asked our staff in the workshop to paint the birdcage which I bought few days ago. I want to hang a little round birdcage painted in pink.
It is very common to use a bolster here as an addition to a pillow. I don't really like the shape of bolster but we love to use the bolster.
A bolster (etymology: Middle English, derived from Old English, and before that the Germanic word *ƀulstraz) is a long narrow pillowor cushion filled with cotton, down, or fibre. In western countries, it is usually placed at the head of bed and functions as head or back support. In southeast Asian countries, in particular Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand, the bolster is designed to be hugged when sleeping. From : wikipedia

I plan to change my old curtains in our house. In the middle of raining, I lied down on my bed, and suddenly I just wanted to grab my laptop and started to browse. I have found a new lovely blog today Donatella Style which give me an inspiration about A Touch Of Lace and look what I have found !! Never thought before that lace curtain will be in my shopping list tomorrow. I will post the picture of our new curtains once they're done. I will have the style as above pictures, some people said it's cafe curtain style. Click here for more lace collections.

As I'm a white interior lover, I have found this amazing picture from simply seleta, the blog that I regularly visit. I have found many inspiring things there and learn about how to make cute labels from her blog too.
As my eldest daughter birthday is coming soon, it is fun to look around for birthday inspiration on the internet. The cakes are from the cupcake company. The title of the pink cake with lace decoration is shabby chic cake :) The above birthday decorations are from amy atlas. I also found another great blog for birthday inspiration : mylife-myloves and the tomkat studio.

Hydrangea and tuberose are some of my favorite flowers.
I love their look and I love the smell of tuberose.
They are also easy to display. Without skill requirement in floral arrangement, we can just put them in a big vase or bucket. My friend gave me a little iron bucket, I think it is perfect to put the hydrangeas. I displayed the above flowers at our home for a new year's family dinner gathering.
