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.

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 –

Favorite Pictures from November

Some of my favorite pictures from November were pretty easy to pick. I almost knew they were my favorites the minute the entered my mobile camera !

 

  1. Ginger Plant – One of the very many plants that my in-laws grow in thier garden ! They love gardening and we love consuming what they grow.

2. My sister sent us this picture – my brother plated this dessert for her when she visited him in this restaurant that he works in. By the way – he is the chef’s favorite.

3. Another one courtesy my sister – she attended her friends wedding and there was this cute photo booth or a decor area alongside the celebrations. She was amused by it and so were we .

4. I was learning how to use my iPhone camera in a better manner. So there was this short tutorial which was demonstrating how to use focus by tapping on the screen.  I wanted to try it immediately, and the prettiest object to focus on my messy desk was the idol of one and only baby Krishna !

5. Almost half of October my daughter was eyeing other children’s tricycles and even climbing on them in an attempt to ride. It made me realize that it is time for us to get one for her. Little did I know that the one I ordered online is going to be a DIY assembly ! So here we are – myself, the princess and our staff – the 4 of us assembling a tricycle !

6. The fruits of my hard work bore and came the mighty impressive Zodiac sign journals. The Sagittarius Journal is all pretty this month !
