” Why is 11:11 the time to make a wish?
I make wishes all the time, 1:47, 8:29, 12:51; midnight, sunrise;
with magic wells, with shooting stars, with birthday candles;
with nothing at all but the closing of eyes and curling of fists. “
” I don’t want to grow old, please let me keep my little red shoes & wishes for home.
Why did the fairytales have to end?
I would much prefer it if they kept on spinning and spinning in the old film reel;
until the lights flickered and burned out just like time itself. “
” Confusion, confusion. The clock had broken and time had stopped.
She wondered to herself, secretly, silently, whose heart had she broken?
Oh, oh dear, it was always her own – was that better than breaking everyone else’s?
Of course, of course it was, we know silly questions lead to honest answers. “
(This are photos from various amazing artists that I feel fit Athena’s words. Be amazed.)
I found Athena and her blog through the comments section. She left a beautiful sweet comment and I randomly clicked on her name only to find pages and pages of beautiful words sprinkled with fairy dusts, praised by fairy godmothers.
I can never write like her or like Lola or like my sister. My writing has always been suited for newspapers while she can talk about childhood and dreams and heart aches so beautifully befitting a goddess’s hands. An Athena indeed.
Thank you Athena for visiting me. Thank you for leading me to some place beautiful.
How do I narrow down how glamorous this blog is?
3 reasons why it’s worth your attention and a click on the RSS feed button:
- First, a blog must be neat and pretty and attractive, able to attract readers like me who take this factor into much consideration.
- Second, it’s a chest full of jewels and pearls and shining gold (see above). The sort of antique chest buried in the depths of the ocean found by pirates (random: Johnny Depp *squeals then dies*). When the author says “… place of inspiration…”, it really does inspire you to find beautiful things, to read and write and to do what makes you happy.
- Third, it’s “been featured on many blogs, websites, newspapers and magazines including martha stewart, the washington post, design*sponge, decor8, apartment therapy, glamour and many other wonderful design and fashion websites, and was featured in the may 2010 issue of lucky magazine” meaning it’s greatness has been recognized by big names already.
I wish you can tell how glad I am to find this!
PHOTOS ARE NOT MINE

I don’t know what is in Lola’s photographs that I am so attracted to them. Maybe it’s because of the whimsical themes like the melted popsicle and the hearts on the knees. Or the pastel colors used like the lavender ribbon on the lavender wall. Or it could be the dreamy effects which is a favorite of mine. Or perhaps, Lola’s name.
Either which, I love it.
Danni has been keeping me busy and away from my homeworks (thank God for modular pace schools). Finding her via Daydream Lily Blog was like heaven sent. Everything you find in Oh, Hello Friend is beautiful, pretty, and cute. There’s not one bit of fault in this blog, more so on this woman. In her about page, she narrowed down the person behind the creative blog. She is everything I want to be and she has everything I want to have – a very humble personality, a beautiful career, an amazing skill, and a lovely family.
Haven’t you noticed that when you learn that a certain blogger you adore is a Christian, you feel some fluttering feeling in your heart? It’s one factor that is so charming to me for I am also a Christian.
