A Wedding in Taipei...

on the last day of 2011
my eldest son married a beautiful girl from taiwan...
here are some pics from the day.

our table...
at the first reception, before the meal.

my place...groom's mother!

gifts were given to the guests...
a large fluffy blanket with the groom and brides names printed on it
and a box of moon cakes to celebrate new year.

the bridegroom, bride and her bridesmaids arrive at the hyatt,
mr p, the best man is alongside the car.

later that year's eve..
we all watched the fireworks display on the taipei 101 building!

it was a beautiful day.

i know this is just a peep at what happened
but i didn't want to publish people's faces on the internet.

on new year's day
the second reception for more people
was held at the bride's family home...
i'll show some pics from there next time.

sorry they have been so long coming
with all our delays.

i hope you all have a great week...and i hope the sun is shining in your corner!

Like Diamonds!

hi there...
being able to sneak in another post 
is a bonus this morning!

mr t's fan belt lies somewhere on a road 
five minutes from here,
so he has borrowed my car to take his assignment 
down to uni
i get to use his laptop for a few hours...
great exchange.

{expensive though, i'd only just put some fuel in his car and then have had to put more in mine. hehe..that's just the way life works sometimes isn't it?}

on monday morning after the rain on sunday
i took these pics...

when the poincettias 
looked like 
they had been sprinkled with diamond dust.

don't you just 


the sparkles in...

your garden
your street 
and your whole world
on a sunny morning after rain?

last week 
an old friend
needed a bit of a lift,
so to cheer her up
i made this for her...

i chose all my best floral fabric scraps
to make it as pretty as i could..
and she liked it 
and it did cheer her up.

what more could i want!

have a beautifully
kind of day...
