Quaint Umbrella

I  love this  kind of Chinese umbrellas.  They are just so quaint.  I took a snap of this  during the Festival of Nation in Downtown Weirton.  It was one of the  main display of the Chinese.  Very pretty isn't it?

Are you into collecting  antiques?  I admire people who collect  neat stuff specially antiques and other collectibles.  Collecting something is a good hobby that  can be advantageous and could also be disadvantageous to an individual.  It is an advantage if the things you collects are really valuable.  It is a disadvantage if you collect things that  doesn't have any value at all and it is just cluttering your  property.

They also have different kinds  of Asian vases  which is  my favorite items to browse.  I love this Modern Snuff Bottle, it's starting bid is $135.  Auction site is   a nice place  to look for things that are rare, you can buy them sometimes for  a very cheap price. They have a  Bronze Sculpture Ornate Urn there that I really like  but the  starting bid for it is already $700.  

If you would like to see beautiful antique products, check out the site and browse their items.  I enjoyed browsing all their collections.  

Hot Buns

My daughter  love to have her   hair done in a bun style so we bought this Hot Buns, a simple styling solution to do it.  You just roll, snap and wrap it and voila.  I do this every morning to her hair when she goes to school.  

Moving Back from Overseas

Moving is something that somewhat exciting and at the same time very stressful if you do not have a professional mover working with you.  It's funny when my husband and I are talking of moving somewhere else, our children  would immediately object to the idea.  They love  the school where they go to and we all love the neighbors that we have here so moving for us would be very hard.  If circumstances would  require us to move, then I would not mind  it at all.  I like to experience living in different places  as long as all of us are together.  What makes our conversation funny is that, my son in particular would ask "What I going to do with my toys?"  My husband would say "We will be bringing some of them and giveaway some".    That makes my son sad as he love all his toys.  

Having too much stuff is a problem especially when your house is small and you do not have the space to place all of them.  This is where storage areas comes in.   There are  different storage facilities that that you could rent to  put your extra stuff that you do not want scattering around your home.  This is usually  occupied by the people who have big stuff  but there is no  place to  put them in their home.  I remember when we were in Korea, one of my husband's colleague mentioned that he  left  most of their valuables in a storage unit while they are away.  Luckily for us,  somebody was  living at our home so we  left most of our stuff here.  We had a lot of stuff coming back here though  because  we bought some  things while we were overseas.  

Our overseas  move  in going back here was a smooth one because the company that the  government hire to do  our households were very good.  We did not have anything broken and we  were very satisfied of their services.

Coastal Woods Candle

This is the recent candle that I bought from the store.  I was going to get the Spring Scent but my husband love Coastal Wood  scent.  When you lit this candle, you can smell and feel like you are living in a country side with the fresh scent of the woods.  I love it's earthiness and mild scent.
