tagged Y: yellow yellowbells

No need to search high and far for my Tagged Y. My fence is covered and bursting with yellowbells.

The sudden downpour didn’t stop these yellowbells from showing their bright color.

tagged W: whiskers on kittens are one of my favorite things

I don’t think my kitty Star knows how photogenic she really is… fluffy white fur, pink nose, bright blue and golden eyes, furry tail and long whiskers. Of course my other kitty Tiger is beautiful too and the sweetest cuddle buddy.

Whiskers remind me of a song by Maria (Julie Andrews) on the classic movie The Sound of Music with first lines that goes like this…

Raindrops on roses

Whiskers on kittens…

And the last 2 lines of the song…

I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad.

How about you, what are your favorite things? Just try thinking about them and i bet it would put a smile on your face too. How easy is that!

Hope you’ll visit Star on Instagram.

tagged V: vibrant

Vibrant means bright, vivid, brilliant, intense, glowing, rich, colorful, sparkling, alive.

As some of you know, my kitty Star was hospitalized recently due to anemia. She was there for 2 days and 2 nights. Now that she’s home and doing well and her appetite is back to normal, i am happy. The happiness that i’m feeling now is as VIBRANT as the colors of these flowers.

tagged U: Upside-down Umbrellas

Here’s what i found at the activity center at the mall, rows and rows of multi-colored upside-down umbrellas. I’ve learned that there will be some kiddie activities the following day.

What a simple and fun way to make the place vibrant and happy.

tagged T: tobi

Introducing… Tobi, a new member of the family. He is a playful bundle of joy. His past time is bullying the kitties and my other doggie Kristina. He loves to play a lot and run like crazy and chase the cats.

This photo was taken when Tobi was just 2 months old. Now that he’s a bit bigger and fatter, he can’t make himself fit under the wooden cabinet anymore.

tagged S: Swarovski Crystals

Swarovski Crystals are man-made gems manufactured in Austria. In 1895 Daniel Swarovski discovered a formula for making beautiful and high quality lead glass crystals and Swarovski Crystals was founded. Since then, they have been making fashionable jewelries, charms, fashion accessories, figurines and more. These crystals are known to be as the diamond of the crystal world.

I’ve been lucky enough to own a set of  Swarovski baby penguins which was a gift from hubby many years ago. It includes a set of 3 baby penguins and a small pool of water made of crystal of course and a tiny certificate.

If you want to collect Swarovski Crystals, just be sure to buy it from authorized Swarovski Crystals dealers as there may be fake crystals that are sold as real Swarovski crystals.

If you’re an owner of a Swarovski Crystal collectibles or jewelry, you should avoid exposing them to water and/or chemicals. Only mild soap, water, and a soft cloth should be used for cleaning and polishing your crystals. Store them in its original packaging as much as possible.
