New Dollhouse Miniature Pansies Cake

For a while, I've forgotten how creating can be relaxing. That's why creating is something very close to my heart. Last week, I managed to make some new chocolate cream pansies cakes in 1/12 dollhouse miniature scale.

These colors perked me up and I definitely needed them last week!


Thank you to all of you who have left warm positive comments in my last post. I'm grateful for that! :) Thanks for all the positive energies I've received from friends around the world. My mom's healing was faster than I expected. Everyday, I see improvements in her healing. Right now, it's left with a tiny bit of swelling which isn't obvious unless you scrutinize her face. The color changes day to day. Right now it's left with a dark yellowish bruise with streaks of darker red. But it's definitely so much better than the first 2 days. Her spirits are up which is most important, and she even went to the hair salon to get her hair done today ^^ in preparation for next week's chinese new year. I'm feeling relieved. I am thankful for all my friends who are with me in spirit! :)

Everyone has their own story to tell

I recently completed this flower arrangement which I named it Spring Chic. It reminds me of spring time that is slowly but surely approaching us. Although I know this is not truly the case as many of the countries in North Asia are experiencing a sudden big chill and the weather in many of the countries are at a new low. Fortunately or unfortunately, depends on how you see it, Singapore isn't affected by it really. Over here, I'm only experiencing more windy days, but the temperature hasn't dropped lower.

The spring chic dollhouse miniature flower arrangement is available here.

But I had a bit of shock and am feeling a bit sad today. My mother fell at home today. But thankfully I was at home at that time. By the time I went to take a look, she was sitting down and applying some medication to her eye socket area which was very swollen. She also cut her lip. I was very shocked by that, and I insisted to bring her to the doctor right away. I think she was a bit embarrassed to be walking out of the house in that state, but I did not want to delay any further as I wasn't sure if she had any serious injuries. I also think she was in a bit of a shock. We went right away in a taxi and luckily I managed to grab the first spot for her at the doctor. The doctor examined her and said it's hard to tell if she had any fractures but he doesn't think there is any. So we have to monitor her condition for the next few days to see if she has any pain, vomiting, headaches etc. She was prescribed with swelling medication, pain medication and a mouth gargle. The doctor also asked that she put an ice pack over her swollen area to reduce the swelling. So that was my priority when we got home. Even though she's in a bit of shock then, the doctor didn't want to prescribe any medication for that as it will cause drowsiness. So it is something she had to cope and handle naturally. I made her chamomile tea as I knew it helps with anxiety and panic attacks. It was her first time drinking that and I think she is open to anything that helps to calm her down. She finished the entire cup! After an afternoon of icing, her swelling has reduced a lot. But I know she's still a little self conscious with her looks. I know she doesn't want to go out of our home for at least a week until the bruise and swelling is completely subsided. She doesn't want others to think she was being physically abused.

I think as our parents get older and more frail, we will experience and witness things that reminds us that they are indeed not as young and mobile as before. While I was helping my mom with the icing, I had a sudden flashback of how my mom took care of me when I was young and broke my nose accidentally in school. She took me to the clinic and then hospital, and also massaged my broken nose gently with the hard boil egg. Now it is my turn to care for my mother. I cannot help but feel sad when I see my mom with a swollen bruised eye. But I did not shed a tear when I was with her, because I had to be strong to be the caretaker.

For the next few days or weeks, I'll be more busy around the house helping my mom. I love my mom very much and want her to get well soon. :)
