I am so impressed with Neawear's wall wear collection, I knew I had to share. Her handmade embroidery consists of the cutest little animals, flowers and leaves, beautifully put together in a vintage metal ornate frame - ready to hang on the wall! She has a wonderfully creative blog too, so be sure to visit!
That shook their purple plumes
And when the sash was open
Shed fragrance through the room
Pretty pictures from here.

Winter doesn't seem so bad afterall.
This is my 2nd favourite pose. I broke my front tooth (adult) once and it grew back…no kidding.
I speak English, Chinese, Hokkien, very basic Cantonese and very basic Italian.
I can swear in many more languages: Malay, Japanese, Spanish, Russian, French, Lebanese, Korean, German, Vietnamese, Behasa Indonesian.
I am an accredited professional translator (Chinese to English)
I teach translation once a week in the evening at university.
When I was about 10, I saw a man running around in flames. He was a mentally ill neighbour who set himself on fire.
I am so vain I’ll happily look at myself in the mirror for hours. I appeared on TV on a talent show when I was a little girl.
I appeared on a newspaper once for the same reason.
I used to collect Barbie dolls; I have about 50 of them in my Singapore home.
I grew up with a lot of pets: dogs, cats, chicken, rabbits, white mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, birds, caterpillars (I wanted to watch them change into pretty butterflies), ferret, fish, tortoise. If I can be an animal, I would like to be a bird so I can randomly poop on people I don’t like.
My favourite reality show is “America’s Next Top Model”.
“Farmer wants a Wife” comes a close second.
I love happy endings, even when it’s cheesy and predictable.
I am really classy when drunk. I prefer juice to soft drinks of any kind.
I seek comfort in fast food, especially Macdonalds and KFC, because that’s what I used to get as a special treat when I was a little girl.
A rocking horse, a little fairy, two tiny chairs, a crown fit for a little prince, a mirror for a vain pot (like me!), a carousel that's every child's dream- I want them all but can you really blame me?
Visit Japonicas for more of whimsical jewellery.
He wasn’t good looking in the conventional sort of way. A goofy looking face, big pointy ears and an impish smile. But I fell for him anyway. It started off with quick chats we had during recess. I found myself looking out for him. It was really easy to talk to him and he always made me laugh. It was the way he sat on the steps outside the canteen, sort of rocking his body to and fro like a little boy. Very endearing.
When he first called me, it was about something lame.
“Did you give me the textbook?” he asked.
“Yes, and you put it straight into your bag.”
“Oh yeah! I see it now! I must be blind!” His reply punctuated with exclamation marks.
He never stopped calling since. We talked at school, outside school, late into the night and even till day breaks. I fell deeper. We met up one night, went to the local arcade and played “House of the Dead” till we killed the evil master at the final stage. It was late in the night but I’ve never felt more alive. We walked to the nearby park. I almost slipped, ground slippery from the rain before. That’s when he smiled at me and held my hands. Thumb stroking my palm, fingers clasped. I closed my eyes and thanked god.
“Hello.” He said sheepishly.
“What are you doing here? My parents will kill me if they know you’re here.”
“I…I just wanted to give you your CDs.”
“OK. Guess that’s it. Bye.”
“Bye” I waved to him not knowing what to do.
He turned and left.
He was back 15 minutes later. I let him in silently and crept into my room. He smiled and I laughed. We spent the night playing cards, looking at each other, talking. I was dying to kiss him but we never did. He left before the sun’s first rays came out.
He disappeared on Christmas Eve. I thought he might call, that we might meet up but it didn’t happen. He ignored my calls, my text messages, basically all forms of contact. I was at a friend’s party but my heart just wasn’t in it. I wanted to run off and play cards with him. After 26 missed calls, I got a reply. I took one look and a part of me died.
“I’m with my girlfriend,” it read.
