When you live abroad and you’re not quite sure when you will move, home decor must be simple, lightweight and packable! So I am perfecting the perfect party and holiday decor – paper garlands! Holy Cow, I love these!! They are cheap and easy to make and they spruce up a room so fast! AND … More Garlands Galore!
AND finally the moment you’ve all been waiting for…well, the moment my sister has been waiting for anyway (she’s been hounding me to post this): The Fairy Village!! I got most of my ideas off Pinterest and improvised after that. Almost everything was either found objects (“lost things…” which I find very fairyish) or scraps from … More A Fairy Party: The Fairy Village
And we’re back to the fairy party again… Now we’re talking about little fairy costumes I made that became the favors (which I like a whole bunch more than little bags of candy or party junk that just ends up in my toddler’s mouth). First off we had fairy wands! So easy and cheap… I … More A Fairy Party: Favors and Fairy Threads

Little E has been having lots of adventures lately and some have been quite surprising! We went to a wonderful tea party at Ciara and Natalia’s house where the girls ate sweets, drank “tea” (actually lemonade) and dressed up in tiara’s, necklaces and dresses. So much fun to watch them act like little ladies…and then run … More Tea Parties and Zukeran Egg Shop
Well, it took me months of work and sewing (on a sewing machine with only a broken silk foot no less…couldn’t find a foot anywhere here and Amazon wouldn’t send one to me) and tons of Pinterest nights when I should’ve been sleeping, but I made all of Little E’s 3rd birthday presents and decorations and I … More Felt food birthday!
We had our first big event at the house this holiday season and after it’s all said and done, I think we may have to keep doing these! Ugly Shirt Thanksgiving began as a party the Wises at church were throwing until it got too big for their on base apartment! Adam and I offered … More Ugly Shirt Thanksgiving 2012
OK, here is what we’ve been up to in October: Shopping on Kokusai Street in downtown Naha. We took the monorail from a downtown shopping mall to avoid crazy parking situations…I highly recommend this because it was also fun to see Naha from up high! We watched a Halloween parade while we were there. Totally … More Kokusai Street, Ryu’s Dining and Homemade Mad Hatters
