I really miss home my beloved country Philippines!!! I am proud to be a Filipino!!! I love our own product as well. That arrangement i made are big shells, a native bag from my beloved friend Susan from the Philippines.That bag, it's been with me for two years now.I put " sungka " at the front as we call it our own country. One flower vase which i filled with medium sized shells and i tied a shell neclace around  the vase.The antique clock is also the one that adds the beauty on the table.There's one peach color candle on the left which i used a recycled yellow bowl, and recycled green saucer at the bottom.The table is antique too. All those decorations are recycled.Nothing is new. I spent quite enough time to look for many, many, shells for my home.My candles, my own sungka, vase,shells are from the thrift stores.My antique clock is from the garage sale close to my house.I love doing this and it gives me some relief from tired soul...there's no excuse not to decorate a home with  less expensive things.Nothing is even brand new!!!
These decoration is placed on top of the Piano whom my beloved mother-in-law gave to my children. I bought these glasses from the thrift store close to my house, as well the collections of shells.You can see my other zen if you can see the reflection of the mirror.Of course i took time to arranged the shells in each of
the glass.Least expensive, everything is recycled, I try to decorate my home without any excuse of the need to buy new things just for me to be able to decorate, or to give myself an excuse not to decorate because
everything needs to be new.That is not true in my own opinion.
This is my last arrangement for the day.If you see this picture, you are looking at  vintage items.This a small table where i get my sugar, creamer, and coffee.
As a stay home mother, these are the few things that i love doing that makes me feel's kind of therapy for me, as what my friend Susan told me.Both of us would love to go to flea markets and thrift stores as well as garage sales hunting for inexpensive things that can enhance the look of a home.Until now, some things i cannot let go of doing, that is decorating and arranging my home...which that made my own children a home body for now , and telling me mom, i love this home, this is home and that is a huge compliment for me to hear it...they love to see my home in different ways of " simple style " yet cozy to stay in.


It's summer and I want my home to have a summery feeling. I love flowers but flowers are expensive it's $9.95 or more excluding sales tax. I went to safeway grocery, and i tried to go around the flowers corner.There I found this one soft pink summery feeling carnation flower for $ 3.75 which i like because it's a lot! I can spread it out since that is my plan.Here's one of the pictures i took.I took 4pcs. of my wine glasses and put one carnation flower in each of them and place it in my own zen.
This is my zen.It's a white antique table with an inverted antique mirror behind it.On top of the table i put a rectangular candle in front of it, flower next to the candle, and a glass of shells on both sides, and another tall glass with candle inside, and small stones at the bottom.
This is another set of flowers. I used a simple recycled glass and my handmade yellow crochet at the bottom of the center flower  vase.I just cut the carnation flowers shorter to fit in the size of the glass, and i placed it at
the center of my dining table.It's simple, yet it makes a big difference.

One detailed picture that i took.

This is how it looks in my dining table.Now i celebrate my summer with a warmer ambiance, with a summery carnation flower which i was able to decorate my tables with a $3.75 worth flower.And this kind of flower it will last up to two weeks, and never smells bad when it starts to die.It's cheap but practical, rather than no flowers at all!!!
