R.I.P. my dear friend..Xx.

My dear uncle, Timmy. <3
A kind, gentle soul who was taken from me all too soon! :'(
You'll have a special place in my heart always..Xx.

Febuary 11th 1949 - June 15th 2012

God saw you getting tired, When a cure was not to be,
He closed his arms around you and whispered, "Come to Me".
In tears we saw you sinking. We watched you fade away.
Our hearts were broken, you'd fought so hard to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping peacefully, free from all the pain,
We could not wish you back to suffer once again.
So keep your arms around him Lord, and give him special care.
Make up for all he suffered and all that seemed unfair.

Been shopping lately?. . .

Since I've finally repainted my kitchen, had new flooring put in and bought new cupboards I thought this warranted some shopping for some home furnishings... Here's what I bought in a local store.

I'm awaiting the delivery of some glass wall art, it should be here on Tuesday. I'll post it when it arrives. :)

Nail Art Inspiration!

Most women know the difficulties of growing beautiful long nails, it takes a whole lotta 
patience and it's all the more difficult for those of us who have the nasty habit of
biting our nais! All this patience be ruined in an instant which is what happened me!

Two of my darn nails broke last week so sadly they all had to go, now I have
the stumpiest looking fingers known to mankind.. *LOL* XD

But there is light at the end of the tunnel, this gives me the chance to ensure
my nails grow back healthier than ever. Now I'm not a major nail biter but I have
been known to do it from time to time, so to help me refrain I decided to Google some 
easily created nail art for inspiration.

Any snail mail lover will surely adore these. <3

How incredible is this fishtale/braid effect nail art?
Check out more nail art from this girl - lucy's Stash

Comic book nail art. :)

Newspaper nail art. :)

I apolagize for the brutal picture but I wanted to show you
my first attempt at marble nail art and this is the only picture
I have. I tried this about two months ago, it was so messy and
time consuming but still fun. >_<

What do you guys think? Also if you got any tips on growing healty nails, please do share them with me. I need all the help I can get.:)

Snailmail lovers dream bed..

I was browsing through some sites searching for bits and pieces for the house
when I came across this absolutely amazing duvet set on and I
simply had to share it with you guys....

Look at the pillow covers.... Aren't they the greatest, I've fallen in love with
this and simply have to have one! Sadly they're sold out at the moment but
I'm checking the site practically on a daily basis and I'll reserve one in store
when they restock.. :)

Now I can combine two of my loves... Snailmail & bed.. ;)

What do you think?
