Romance


Hi All, 

It has been a busy week and it was a great one ! 

And it is even lovelier to see ROMANCE is heading to her new home in Virginia, USA. This is the best motivation for me to move further in this journey. Thank you so much.

And, in Bingkai we have completed a custom order for a company in Perth. It's a repeating order! How good is that!  She would like us to hand-paint "PLEASE WAIT TO BE SEATED" signs for her restaurant, in a rustic off white background with black lettering. Framed with Tasmanian Oak frame dark stained with Teak Brown. Completes with a slim LED lights for economical long hour of running. 


On the other hand, another exciting project! we hand-dyed the electrical cord to complete this cute little Tripod Table Lamp. The lamp shade is paper mache made from recycled newspaper. It's now listed on our Etsy store, please click here to read more about the table lamp. Please let us know what you think about it! 



Here before I go off .. another sharing of the song I keep playing this week .. :O .. hope you'll love it too .. "YOU BELONG TO ME"


I better let you go to enjoy the rest of the beautiful weekend .. and hope there's another awesome week waiting ahead of us! 

Love, 
Ching

Grace

Hi all,

This is just a random post .. a little bit of this and that :)

Cooler weather now that I could spend more time in the studio which is in our garage.

Have just completed Grace. I always dream to be able to dance gracefully ... well more of an imaginary thoughts. And, in my painting, my peacock would always have the grace to dance in its beautiful garden.

Also visited Fingal Head little light house. Absolute beautiful scenery, and we were welcome by a family of dolphins.





Hello so long ;)  It's me and my other half ..



Listening to this song now ... hope you like it. Devotchka, The Winner Is ... How it Ends  http://devotchka.net/



Wishing all of you having lots of beautiful days .. and living everyday gracefully  ;)

Some Vintage Chairs Restoration


Hi All, 

Life is interesting ! 

I have a little project last week, restoring a few vintage chairs. Cleaning up, sanding down, waxing all round and upholstering the cushion ! And now I am in love with this beauties. 

They are of the bentwood chairs, one of Ton's design. Which was imported and assembled by James Richardson in NSW.
