Feeling like a Queen

Friday, Friday! Nothing like start, not only the week, but the weekend with fresh washed bed sheets, change the bed cover, and having a cozy bed waiting for you at night or who knows for a little nap in the afternoon? Friday is the day of the week we love the most here! We can sleep in the next day, make breakfast on the weekend with the whole family together (daddy always leave home quite early during the week) and just enjoy ourselves. No plans at all for the weekend...Oops, I almost forgot! We might be going tomorrow afternoon for a movie. It's been a while we haven't done this and we've been waiting for Alice in the Wonderland...the kids are very excited here to see this one. We all love Johnny Depp!
So, yes, I made a nice pillow (actually I made three) but I'll post all them together in another post for sure, I promisse. So today I'm really feeling like a Queen! The house still have the beautiful Carnations leaving a nice smell around, all the beds are done, floors...everything looks good for a nice weekend here and I wish the same for all of you! A cozy, enjoyable, fun, quite, whatever you decide, but a wonderful weekend for you all!
Until next time!
Love, Li :-)

That is so pretty. You are so creative! I wish I had a sewing machine. But I could never do that.

We will go see Alice And Wonderland on Monday for the first showing of the day when all the kiddies are in school. I don't like the crowded theatre...people are so rude nowadays.

Li, I am a keen follower of your blog and especially your white ruffled pillow. Not being a sewer, I could never tackle that kind of project. This weekend at a flea market I found a ruffled white pillow. I would like to feature it on my blog ,with a link to your original pillow post and use a couple of your pictures, but only with your permission though. Can you email me at let me know if this would be OK with you. Thanks,
