The Weekly Story ~ wk 62

Hello my lovelies.... So how was the first week of the year... Are you still recovering from all the partying, dinner... and missing friends and family who've gone back.... 

I've got a lot to show you this month... some of these pending from last year... a table decor (I think I did in November)... a lovely home tour.... I'm taking you to Taiwan with me... And.. above all... I'm going to share my Christmas presents... (only coz I think they are too cute)... and I got goodies from The Rajee Sood Home... Can't wait to share all this with you!! *smiles*

Today, I'll share with you a few pictures from New Year... Its strange how families work... It truly is... As I was really not in the mood for a grandNew Year celebration... One of my cousins decided, she was going to deck the house... and put up candles and other stuff... At 20 something... its not perfect... Plus you have to remember that she is no decor enthusiast at all... But coz she made this effort for me... I'm touched!! *smiles*

And I like these two stars so much... that I'm going to leave them in the garden the whole year... What do you think?

Another one of my cousin... thought the dinning table needed to look pretty for New Year... He got the bottom class (from our archives)... himself.. and then put these candles up... I helped him add a few petals.. and I am soooooooooooooo thankful... for having a totally mental family support me *smiles*

Another of my cousins... (another 20 something)... called his friends over!! Every half an hour I had a new friend knocking at the door... They ended the night, by playing... 'beer ping pong'... only... the beer was replaced by 'vodka'... Gosh.. these young kids can really drink!! They played... they danced... they sang... they made merry!! And made my New Year fabulous!! So... thank you my loves!! Thank you!!

So all of last year... we spoke about 'pink and lotus'', tell me... what colour would you like to focus on this year?? *smiles*
