Marie Antoinette Room

Come visit my new friend's Marie Antoinette Room! I had the pleasure knowing Caren when she approached me for some fake macarons. Initially I didn't know how those fake macarons would be used for (they are still in the midst of making by the way) but curiosity got the hold on me. I'm always curious how my customers use these fake macarons :) Caren told me she wanted to decorate her Marie Antoinette inspired room with them, and she shared some precious photos with me.

I was blown away by the room - I know you will too because you can tell a lot of time and effort has been put into the decoration. From the colours, to the wall details, there is just so much to admire and see. Imagine putting on some relaxing music, filling up the room with your favorite scent, resting your feet, sipping tea and eating sweets in this marvelous room. That's what I was thinking when I saw it. :)

I asked Caren if I could possibly share these photos on my blog and I'm so glad she allowed me to, so a very BIG thank you to you, Caren!!

Without much delay, here are a few photos :)

Don't you just love the colour of the wall and all the intricate patterns on the wall? I love it!
Even the fabric print of the chair matches!

The lounge chaise looks incredibly comfortable. Would you enjoy reading a book or napping on it?

Some faux cakes and beautiful decorations:)

More work are planned for this room, so perhaps in the future, I might be able to show you more photos!

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do. ^ ^

Madame La Fee Cross Stitch - My work in progress

Ever since I laid my eyes on Madame La Fee cross stitch patterns, it has been on my wish list :)
I'm thrilled when I finally own it, and was even more delighted when I finally started working on it about 2 months ago.

If you had been following my blog, you'd know that I fell head over heels in love with this one.

When I finally got my hands on the chart, I started digging through my stash for the light pink fabric (as recommended) to stitch on. Just amazingly enough, I have a pink fabric in my collection and the size was just perfect for it. However as I have been keeping the fabric for a long time, it has a few yellow spots here and there, so the first thing I had to do was to wash and remove the yellow spots which I did successfully by washing and using some fabric stain remover. Some folks said baking soda would help too but I don't have that at home, so I just tried using what I have at home.

My progress has been slow but I'm glad this is a easy chart to stitch. They consist of all full cross stitches so it's very enjoyable too. I'm currently working on the cupcake, and once I'm done, I'll move onto the right hand side of the chart!

Christmas Present For Myself

Am I the only one who has the habit of buying chrismtas present for myself? ;)

How was your Christmas? I hope you had a great one spending quality time with your loved ones.

I worked on Christmas Day ;) But it was not tough, and I had fun chatting with my student who had not been able to come for class for a while. After that, I went to my aunt's place for family gathering and we had a nice Christmas spread for dinner. It was delicious!

Oh and I pampered myself with some christmas presents too which finally arrived in the mail.

Some skincare items which I will be using religiously, plus these are perfect for traveling too since they don't take up too much space.

Tons of face masks!

Face Serum

Eye cream

I plan to spend some nice quiet time for cross stitching and watching some movies. :)

I should take a photo of my cross stitch project soon too, which I started 2 months ago?

Maybe for my next post!

Bunny Necklace - Pink Bunny Macaron Necklace

Look at my bunny necklace! ^_^

This week I was in the mood for a little painting and decided to paint this cute bunny on my macaron.

I am pleased how it turned out. I love bunnies although I have never had one before. They exude such calm elegance.

This will be a perfect gift for that someone who love bunnies :)

There might be another design soon. Do look out for it!

Macaron Ornament - Cherry Pop Christmas Macarons

These new batch of macaron ornaments are freshly whipped and I'm so glad they are finally dried. The weather has been very wet lately which slows down the drying time tremendously.

But I'm glad they are now done and are ready to be shipped to its new owner :)

I truly love this shade, which is a bright cherry red which just makes me smile.

I'm going to offer this colour in my shop just because I think it's lovely. I know it might be a little late but well, there's going to be Christmas every year no?

Dollhouse Decor - Home Sweet Home Wooden Sign

This cute shabby dollhouse decor has the word "Home Sweet Home" printed on it.

I made it a little while ago, and as usual forgot about it when I got busy with real life. The other day, I saw it again in my pile of to-do things and took some time to marvel at its cuteness. :)

I know, sometimes I just get a little crazy playing with my own creations, but it helps to fuel my creativity too!

I don't have a dollhouse but I can still enjoy playing miniatures, or taking them out to appreciate their tiny beauty and intricacies.

With that, I shall leave you with this picture. I have many dollhouse decor signs I want to make, and we'll see how many I can come up with!

Have a happy week!

Macaron Ornament - Red Macaron - Faux Macaron

These newly whipped macaron ornaments are a special request for a christmas tree :)

Initially piping the snowflake on these was not in the horizon, but I guess it was just the matter of time that we decided to go for it.

I'm so glad this turns out beautifully, and I'm liking these red macarons a LOT right now. Looking at it just makes me happy because the colour is so christmassy!

If anyone fancy some of these, pop me a note!
