Nashville Flea Market

Hi All !!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend !


Ours was wonderful. The weather was nice as well, a little bit cold but very sunny. So, its perfect for outside activity.

We went to Nashville Flea Market that happening every 3rd weekend of the month. This is the first time for us to visit this event.


We love it. The place is huge. You really need to prepare walk a lot. And if you are on the budget, bring your own food and drink.

They charge $5 for parking.





They have all kind of stuff. Things from brand new to dead people stuff ( antique :)



I love the furniture makeover stand. I love the collection. We just enjoy the market and just look around. We didn't buy anything ( because we just not need anything, yet :))

My Jewelry Organizer ( Ice Trays )

I assume we ( women ) all love to have accessories as part of our fashion style. And one of them is jewelry. That is including me myself.

I'm blessed beyond my imagination with the jewelry I have now. I came from the family limited with money when it comes to buy something other than basic need and education.

Sometimes I think I have a little bit to much. When I see my jewelry drawer. Oh my...they are all over the drawer.


So, one morning I had this idea using the ice tray that we did not use anymore ( thank full for the ice maker :)

Final result I'm so happy with it. Now I can see what I have in my jewelry drawer.


And all my necklaces, I hang them at this padded organizer.



What a simple solution to organize your jewelry.

Spring Beauty and Blessing !!

This morning when I woke up and say a little prayer thanking God for the new day He gave me.

I got up prepare my breakfast and sat on breakfast table. As I was starting enjoying my simple breakfast. I look at my pot orchid that I bought a month ago to addition of  my orchid collection. And listening to the bird singing.


Tears came into my eyes. Thinking how great is my God that created that orchid and produce such simple yet so beautiful flowers for me to enjoy. The birds who singing without hesitation to enjoy the morning. Keep in mind it is raining here today in my area. The rain doesn't stop the birds from singing. What a beautiful picture to start the morning.

I realized the Winter almost over  and new life starting to coming out from the ground.
For some folks the winter might be longer or shorter it depend what part of globe you are live. But for sure it will come. Sometimes in our life our winter life could be longer and seems the Spring never come to show us the beauty of long waiting.

As I ponder in my heart of my own winter life. There is some part that seems we always on this winter  for so long and wonder when is the Spring will come. I don't know the answer for that but in the mean time I will enjoy the Spring nature that God gave to us.

So, there is time in everything !! Might be longer or shorter but Spring will come for us to enjoy the beauty of the colors and new life.
