For me, Thanksgiving is not about the turkey, the pie, or the abundant decadent food. It is really about being thankful for life. Today I thank my Savior and Lord for the gift of life and for every single blessing.
I am also thankful for you. Yes, you. All of our loyal readers, subscribers, new visitors, clients, and friends. I am truly nothing without you. Wishing all of you a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving!
I am taking a couple days of this week off to enjoy the fall season. Dallas Arboretum is an oasis in the midst of hectic Big-D town and I think it has its own charm. I’ve been there once for our engagement photo session a few years back. At that time, we weren’t able to enjoy most of the arboretum though.
So, the husband and I went there again for a picnic date a couple days ago and we had a lot of fun. It is such a charming, romantic place. We had a picnic overlooking the White Rock lake and had fun exploring the garden as well. It was a good time to go because they had a fun looking pumpkin village set-up in celebrating the autumn season.
I used to think that a chair is just a chair. You know, something for you to sit on. Thanks to the History of Design class I took when I was pursuing my bachelor’s degree, I came to know a bit about the wonderful world of designer chair and furniture.
The chairs above, though, are the miniature version of the original chair, manufactured by REAC Japan. To be exact, it is 1/12 smaller than the original, so you can literally place it on the palm of your hand. These chairs would look great on every interior designer’s desks :) It comes in blind assortment boxes, which is also sold by Kidrobot. I know some of you are drooling, but some of these chairs are really rare. For example, that Ponyskin Chaise Lounge by Le Corbusier was only produced 3000 items worldwide. Since it has been produced/launched since last year, chances are a lot of the rare chairs are no longer in the blind boxes, but hey who knows! :)
Some of my favorite designs: Rietveld‘s armchair and zigzag chair, all Eames chairs (of course), especially the lounge chair, the ottoman, the elephant chairs, and the red plastic armchair with rocking base, Jacobsen‘s egg chair and ant chair, Mies Van Der Rohe‘s barcelona chair, and Nelson‘s marshmallow sofa.
Visual comparison between Paris and NYC, designed by Vahram Muratyan, a Parisian art director. Love, love the whole idea, the illustration style and the font choice. I adore the macaron vs cupcake one :)
It’s especially amazing for people who have been to both cities and can relate to the whole concept, but it’s also informative (e.g. the one about the tipping) for someone like me who have never been to both. I love it. Would definitely look great hanging on the wall!

I recently introduced my hubby to the wonderful world of cacti and succulents and I think I successfully got him hooked as well :) When I stumbled across this beautiful wedding shot by Phoebe Joy and Connie Lyu, I was wowed and got a tiny bit of wedding envy. How adorable are those bouquets and boutonnieres?! I love!
