Finally the candleholders

If you remember from previous post I had a pair of Italian Candleholders that I wanted to match, I finally did it and here are the results. I add some gold to the borders. Now I have a new pair of candleholders and I like them.

Decorative Box.

I created this box before Valentine's Day, using few pieces of fabric, ribbons, bottons,pearls, lace.
The base for the box was made in the form of a hearth using pieces of cardboard. The flowers were made of fabric all from nothing.I use a diferent color for the inside of the box and make a cushion in the inside of the cover. I'm using it to put my winter globes. Very practical and decorative.

Build A Box Of Friendship

Into a box of friendshipTo insure that it is strong First a layer of respect On the bottom does belong. Then to the sides attach, In the corners where they meet, Several anchors full of trust, Devoid of all deceit. The height of friendship can be measured By the sides of four, So make them all a larger cut, And the box will hold much more. Now fill it up with courtesy, Honor and esteem, Understanding, sympathy,And passion for a dream. Add to that your honesty,Emotions joy and love,And since they’re so important,Place them up above But leave the box wide open So all can see inside,To learn what makes a friendship work From the box you built with pride.

The Fireplace ....

This pictures show another change, it was at the started of Summer.

This fireplace Mantel is always changing, I like to do different displays for every occasion, here is just to exhibit a few candle holders I have.

The picture with the children playing by the sea, was a previously arrangement, more simple.

The Bird Cage.

There is something sutil and beautiful in this picture. Is another hand made embroidery, I decided to framed in gold, is a victorian style cage.

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

The free bird leapson the back of the wind and floats downstreamtill the current endsand dips his wings in the orange sun raysand dares to claim the sky.But a bird that stalksdown his narrow cagecan seldom see through his bars of rage his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing.The caged bird sings with fearful trillof the things unknown but longed for still and is tune is heardon the distant hill for the caged birdsings of freedom.
The free bird thinks of another breeze an the trade winds soft through the sighing trees and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn and he names the sky his own. But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing.
The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom.

More from Easter Celebration 2009.

On Easter Sunday people celebrate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, is an annual celebration.This Easter celebration was wonderful, we had a lot of fun creating the traditional eggs, and making the dinner with the family. It was a magical time ,we enjoyed the baskets filled with chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks and jellybeans.
I wanted to share a few pictures with all of you, wishing that you too had a great day.

Easter Blessings.

I had been very fortunate this year. I got Tulips for valentine's Day and this Easter again my family surprised me with more plants, tulips (Pink , orange and yellow) and Hyacinths pink and white), more to add to my garden. But for now I just enjoy them inside the house. A real Easter blessing.
