Embrace Tranquility

Bonus points for those who know where the post title is inspired from 😛 DYNASTY has out a great traditional Chinese furniture set called Tranquility at The Epiphany this round. There are 10 total items to win (9 Commons and 1 Rare). There’s also an exclusive prize for those wanting a stone stool instead of the jade version. I couldn’t help but bring in parts of my childhood into this set as well. This set up is partly inspired by my mother. She absolutely loves plants and would have them grouped all over the house, especially near the entry way. For her, flowers and plants bring her tranquility and inner peace – a beautiful outlet from all the chaos that surrounds us all.

Beautiful day for a wedding …

May 20th 2018 is approaching really fast, Caleb and I have been … semi busy with planning and thinking of the wedding (ok not really).  Not that we aren’t excited about the wedding that is coming up but more that we are enjoying each others company more.  But we have finally taken a moment to just put our minds to it and just start to decorate.  I started off with Bridezilla intentions of having a blue and silver wedding because those are my favorite colors … and well that went south really fast because the more I thought about it, the more I realized I really don’t want to tie myself to two colors.  I want a variety of things happening at my wedding.  One thing is for sure though, I wanted a beachy wedding.  For sure that is something myself and Caleb really agree’d on because we both have this insane love for the beach.  So we set up a beachy island (when I say set up, we enlisted our decorating daughter to do so!) and poof we had a gorgeous outdoor space for our event!

ALOT of my decor is from Moss & Mink, which these items were part of the Arcade.  I worked really hard playing that machine to get everything I wanted.  Now she is a generous designer that will allow you to trade a full set of Trans for a full set of Copy.  Which was perfect for my needs.  We need lots of little cakes to set out at each of the tables for all to enjoy.  The aesthetic of it all was to be pleasing and yummy.  While we do have the longer buffet table to hold all the big goodies like our wedding cake, which again was perfect from her set.  I see it as one stop shopping to get the items I need for the wedding.  Now because this was an arcade item, there is a machine at the store where you can go up and see the demo and then play the machine to get all the goodies for yourself.  There are over 22 items to win, some of them are more for the color variations like the chairs, tables, and balloons.  The rest of the food goodies are all the same choice, then you have the two rares, the big cake and the conservatory.  All of which the items are very cute and fun to decorate with.

So if you are like me and are in need of some very sweet wedding items, or you are wanting party items for other special occasions, I would suggest that you cater to the girly girl in you and have your fun playing this machine, even Caleb is manly enough to have these at his wedding ♥  Make sure to check out the other amazing things she has in her store, if you are a cute frilly type of person this store is definitely for you!

奶奶家

My grandmother (from my father’s side) is from Shanghai and I am still fortunate enough to be able to have her in my life. She’s had a long, tumultuous life, especially during the madness of the Chinese Revolution. Now, her life is more calm here in the States with me where she lives a more tranquil and modest lifestyle, close to her family and only a phone call away. Every few days I go visit my grandmother and take care of her, making sure she has everything she needs and her home is tidy. Her home has become a second home to me. Just recently my grandmother reached an amazing age of 89.

請進 – Welcome to my grandma’s home.
