My Rock (Pebbles) Garden

Soft semi-rounded rocks (pebbles)  have always fascinated me since I was a kid. I have always wanted to have a rock garden of sorts...

In fact, my son probably noted my fascination of these pebbles so that one day, from school, he brought me pebbles.

At that time, I cannot have a garden. We were just renting a space. But now that I have a small space for gardening, I also started gathering rocks from nearby sources... and surrounded some of my potted plants...

I even made a cairn - just like those that they pierce and string together at Pinterest! But this one I simply balanced.







I hope it gets to look better with each passing day.

Thin Crust Pizza w/o Oven

Thin crust pizza  is one of the most delectable, pricey foods we often go out and sought for in pizza parlours like Shakey's, or Tony's. I didn't know how to make a dough, nor where to buy the ingredients, so, if the craving begins, we go out and spend.

Until I first saw a pack of pita bread in some upscale grocery section, my adventurous cook shied. Armed with Kraft cheddar cheese, Del Monte tomato sauce, bellpepper, and Purefoods chorizo sausage, and a bread toaster to boot, we made our first, and an instant favorite thin crust pepperoni pizza.

Directions:
1. Grate the cheese.
2. Slice the bellpepper in desired size & thickness.
3. Slice the chorizo horizontally and a centimeter thick.
4. Spread the tomato sauce on the top of the pita.
5. Sprinkle the bellpepper slices.
6. Sprinkle a generous amount of cheese.
7. Lay some slices of chorize.
8. Place on bread toaster at 10-minutes setting.
9.Serve and feast!

Glass Stories

There's something about glass- its cheap and pretty!

And I am recycling fabrics and the recently popular reusable grocery bag... Most of them are green, and that kind of green you'd accent your upcycled fabric roses.

 So, I made leaves out of reusable fibre bags - hey, they're also made of plastic!
 And accented a wine bottle... with them upcycled fabrics....
 ...and complemented Mr. Johnnie Walker with a moonstone tree...
 I also transfered a line on the bottle, something to read in case this was given to somebody... Somebody...
 There you are -
...to make up two bottle stories today...

Suncatchers

It is such a bleak world we have now, so, don't blame me if I am now very much fascinated with suncatchers! If I have had more than enough funds, I'd buy all the suncatchers in my Pinterest list! SO many. Then, I stumbled upon DizArtEx's and - I already wish I have so much extra fund I'd sample all her products!

Unfortunately, I can only feature them here - look!

I have always been partial to simplicity: Japanese art - ikebana, minimalism... But the intricacy of the work in a very laid-back simplicity just blew me!
