The Princess Award goes to:

Just Another Fairytale

"Inside the snow globe on my father's desk, there was a penguin wearing a red-and-white-striped scarf. When I was little my father would pull me into his lap and reach for the snow globe. He would turn it over, letting all the snow collect on the top, then quickly invert it. The two of us watched the snow fall gently around the penguin. The penguin was alone in there, I thought, and I worried for him. When I told my father this, he said, 'Don't worry Susie; he has a nice life. He's trapped in a perfect world."
{The Lovely Bones}

Another favorite flickr finds! Fairytale-like pictures are from David Urbanke. Do you know how old he is? He's only 15 yet he took beautiful photos, I wonder if he's self-taught. Hmmm... Anyway, we're closer to Valentine's Day. A lot of street concerts, food, and of course couples. So I'm going to throw a question and post your answers in this entry. How will you celebrate the upcoming lovey-dovey day? :)

P.S. I recently received an inspiring message from Trishie (Under Lock and Key) that she has given me a Princess Award! I'm going to do the tagging thingy one day. I promise! Thank you for posting my link in your site as well as the award. *blush*

Play with the Rippling Water

And I'm still struggling for my book (The Lady and the Unicorn) because I lost it! I couldn't seem to find it elsewhere. I invaded different classrooms just to check for it. How brazen of me. I couldn't find another one in the thrift bookshop where I bought it. There's no other way but to find soft copies on the internet.

I was glad to be tagged in trishie's site. Visit her.
