Jewelry Display Board

Because of my recent summer holiday/unemployment period, I have the luxury of doing projects that have been on the back of my mind.  So today, poor Kenny had to get up early to drive me around to gather "ingredients" for making this board.  I couldn't decide between painting the board and using fabric, but since I love the natural cork color, I decided to go with the latter (maybe I will paint it when I get board again). 

Things needed: Corkboard (from TJ Maxx ~20USD), Lace (1/2 yard, ~2USD), Thumb Tacks and Push Pins (~2-3USD each)

Now the board is proudly displayed next to the vanity table.  Would everyone agree with me that the board needs more statement necklaces? *wink*

Shopping: Forever 21 Elephant Ring Holder

I have always wanted a ring holder ever since I saw the ones from Anthropologie.  Those bunny ones were so cute that I got one for my friend's birthday because I needed an excuse to buy them.  Then I saw this elephant ring holder over the weekend at Forever 21.  They are only $4.50 plus they are super adorable.  This made my day so I wanted to share it on the blog! Happy shopping/blogging/holiday in case I forgot on July 4th!

Broadway Prime - Burlingame, CA

I thought I ought to write about this place if it was the reason (okay, this is an exaggeration) for going back to the bay area last week!  Although The Capital Grille here is awesome, it comes with a huge price tag $$$$$$ if you order traditional (non-Asian sharing) style.  What I love about the Broadway Prime is that you don't have to pick! It specializes in prime rib so you only need to pick the size.  It's 33 dollars to have the smallest version (shown below) and it comes with a salad, creamed corn, creamed spinach and your choice of mashed or garlic mashed or baked potato.  Rumor has it that the owner of this place used to work for the House of Prime Rib in San Francisco.  This place seems to be slightly cheaper but without the old-fashion glamor in SF (unless you are trying to impress you date, who cares?) The good news - it's also easier to get a table here!

Sky Project

Presenting my project of the coming year - The Sky Project.  It has been one month since starting the blog now; and I have enjoyed updating each day.  So far I have never missed a day, but I can foresee how difficult it would be when traveling between time zones. 

Here's my photo of the day! Please visit my other blog to read more!

Poor Mr. Clock-Turned-Mirror

Hello Summer!  Summer is the time for home improvement right? Maybe I will come up with a project or two myself later.  Recently, it has been rhinestones and rhinestones and rhinestones for me.  And did I mention I sell my first item on Etsy? *clap clap clap* (Maybe I will share some products I made up here later!)

But today I am sharing a photo of my new decorative mirror.  It was a beautiful clock, as you can probably tell with the silver studs.  Poor Mr. Clock fell down from the wall last year and ended up with twisted arms.  He had to go through emergency surgery to remove his arms and replaced it with a new mirror face.  It took me a while to locate the right size mirror AND figure out how to glue it firmly enough (glue gun failed me so this is now glued with superglue for glass).  Now Mr. Clock-Turned-Mirror finds his purpose again!
