Favorite Pictures from December

(Dec 2016 that is ! )

It happens to be my birth-month. Also my wedding month. December generally is a good month regardless.

My daughter Amaira attended her very first Birthday Party as a guest. It was the birthday of her twin friends and she gladly made them a greeting card.


Amaira proudly trotted carrying all the gifts I packed for the duo in a glitzy gift bag


And she even got return give away gifts. A yoyo ball and a Hannah Montana water bottle 🙂


Another favorite picture was sent to me by a friend. She knows how I bathe Amaira each day and she probably wanted me to see myself ! The only difference is that the bathing at our end is in an enclosed bathroom in an apartment – in one of the million buildings – in an overcrowded ‘bursting from it’s seams’ city (Mumbai). Whereas this image has such a perfect setting – most likely in Southern India and so nostalgic. Simplicity at its purest best. Certain images just take you to this sweet zone in your mind. Even if you have never experienced such a thing personally, it still feels your own. Loved this image so much.

Another image is of proud workmanship. I had to make these sheets using elephant fabrics from my shop Fibers to Fabric for a very appreciative client from Canada. They turned out beautiful with tassels et al. Looking forward to more custom orders for linen and garments with the fabrics.


We went for a breakfast buffet at an Ecotel hotel and Amaira took fancy to the (probably) edible house they had built as a part of the holiday festivities. Those are real marshmallows stuck in there – near every brick (made from what it looked like flour).


To end December and invite January to kick start a brand new year – here is something for the Conservative Capricorns. From what I have read – Capricorns are fans of quality pieces that scream luxury. Here is something for the traditional earth element Capricorns –
