James' Coriander
Jairus' Coriander
To reinforce what my son is learning at school, we planted Coriander seeds and ginger in pots. My boys and I take turns in watering them and they were so happy and amazed when the Coriander seeds started to sprout. The ginger is growing fast too. We have also planted some mint but will post about it later on.

Coffee Table

A coffee table I inherited from my sis-in-law just had a make-over on Friday night. 
I used some wall paper decoupage bought from SPOTLIGHT which was so easy to use.
With the help of my in-house handyman and ever helpful hubby, he applied shellac on it and gave it a new look.

I pre-orered the glass top which arrived the following afternoon and VOILA!  Here's my new coffee table!

Mini Garden

This is my younger son, Jairus' school project.
They are learning about plants and how it gives us food and fresh air.
It is made of 100% recycled things.  We used Saga seeds which I collected from my workplace, Lego pieces and creepy crawly toys that we have at home, a cardboard, dried leaves and plastic ones that were already old and brittle, and some plastacine we found in the toy box.
