Everything is ready, and all that we need is an east wind

Today all I could think of was this chinese proverb as I sat and edit my photos. The proverb is "Everything is ready, and all that we need is an east wind". 万事俱备,只欠东风

It pretty much summarizes exactly how I felt.

You know how sometimes, there is just an missing element that makes it "ahhh", but at that moment, you don't know what that is.

I remembered taking some photos of this dollhouse miniature christmas log cake a while ago, but something just wasn't quite right. I felt that I did not manage to capture its beauty back then.

But today I knew why. The answer was lighting.

We had beautiful weather in the morning today. The sun wasn't exactly scorching but I felt it was just nice. I swear it really was the sun that gives a soft glow to it.

So here I am again, presenting this special christmas log cake. I took reference from a real christmas log cake, and love this modern contemporary feel.

Available at my store! Pei Li's Miniatures

  3. It's beautiful. I like its modern decoration.

  4. Oh,! There IS nothing like the sun to help with pictures and so often this time of year it fails to peek out from behind those clouds for days. Wonderful creation as always. Have a great week. ; )

  5. Dearest sweet pei li, aaaa i know exactly how you feel although i am not quiet ready yet with a few more projects to wrap up!
