Three lovely things

1. Sandy and the 1000 paper cranes.


I don't know how many of you have heard of Sandy and her crane project - I myself only learned about it a few days ago - but I think it's such an inspiring and wonderful project that needs to get some more attention. After reading Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes, a true story about a Japanese girl who on her death bed attempted to fold 1000 paper cranes in order to be granted one last wish (according to Japanese folklore), Sandy was so inspired by the story that she herself made up her mind to start making one thousand paper cranes. But that's not all. She decided to write a positive word at the bottom of each crane from a list of a thousand unique words she'd compiled and then place them on different locations, mostly in New Jersey, in order to spread a bit of happiness to the person who happens to find one. Sandy, in addition hopes that those who find a crane, after contacting her, go on to place it at a different place for someone else to find it. I think that's just lovely, and so sweet.

2. A little recipe book I go for my birthday on Sunday.

Such a sweet little book for writing my own recipes in, and hang on the wall or keep inside the little box which may even be cuter than the book itself!

3. Zara's autumn collection

Zara Autumn 2010

I stopped by Zara this evening and I loved so many of the clothes that were out at the moment. There were so many pretty brown and autumn shades, and so much I wanted to buy. The polka dot dress with the peter pan collar I spotted on the website while finding pictures for this collage and I desperately need to find that dress. It's just gorgeous.

On a little side note, Emily posted a guest post on her blog today that I've written on how to bake a honey cake. Go and check it out!

I know what you mean by Zara! I was there with my aunty last week and I wanted to buy EVERYTHING. Especially the shoes because I know I'll never find them again in Manila. Sadly, no money. I need to get an advance on next month's allowance.

I have this polka dot dress and when I got it I though that it would also be perfect for you. :)
Your birthday present is lovely.
Belated congratulations!

Daisy said...

Such very delightful things !


Hello from Spain!
shop I have not seen the brown polka dot dress.
If you are keen to ask you would not mind it online and send it to Israel, but you may not be worth the cost of shipping.
The dress costs 19.95 euros.

Zara have done nothing wrong in my book in their A/W collection, the polka dot dress is perfection! Shame I have no money to spend on anything at the moment... groan. Will have to improvise! :)

Hope you're sleeping a bit better now and everything Miss Ariella!

P.S if you want me to make you a new header any time, just drop me a comment!

ahh Ariella, I could have died today when I went to zara again, seems like I want almost everything in their autumn collection, if only I could splurge...

Erin Cathleen said...

I was in Zara over the weekend and wanted to go CRAZY, but luckily restrained myself and only bought boots! They're awesome boots, though. :)

Emily, Resplendent Tranquility said...

Happy belated Birthday! Your new recipe book is cute. I'm always attracted to fun little things like that, especially recipe cards.

I hadn't heard of the paper crane project before. I'll definitely check it out!

Oh my. Zara's autumn collection is wondrous. I'd loovvee to have the polka dot peter pan collar dress, too!

P.S. Thank you again for your guest post! I can't wait to try out the recipe :)
