A Special Home tour !:)

This is a special home tour for me...I have been waiting to feature her home on my blog since she bought her home, the walls then were bare with just one paint all over, and we used to discuss how she is going to make them all bright and colorful, and then she also wanted the house to have her impression , and to make that  happen she said all the paintings and most of the wall art should be handmade by her,. ....Oh...I waited waited and waited and it took an year and a half to turn a bare house into a beautiful warm and cozy retreat :) and of course she kept all her promises......a bright and colorful house with her impression all over and of course giving me the honor to showcase it to you for the very first time, 

To all the design enthusiast like me...here's presenting a beautiful home tour...House  of Neha Animesh a dear friend and a very talented fellow blogger at allthingzbeautiful.  I am doing this home tour in two parts, this is the first one ...Enjoy as you explore... 

Have you seen this wall before , if not check it here  she turned it yellow on her own :) and of course all the wall art are handmade by the very talented Neha..



A beautiful table she picked up from her trip to Delhi...now stands pretty in her living room above 


Many moods of the Living Room...





She picked up this kettle from a garage sale ....and look how she turned it into a pretty vase ..


and here's a peek into her formal living room ....
















There is more to come people,.....just wait for my next post,...which will be really soon ...meanwhile do leave your comments and thoughts and make my day :)

Colors Everywhere!

Finally we have some spring in the air!! After such a long time we are seeing some greens  and it really feels awesome,....though the winter hasn't vanished yet ... but still the days have become longer and the sunlight has lot more warmth than before....there are days when it feels really good to be out of the house smelling the fragrance in the air ....and  there is another reason why ...we can believe that spring is in the air :)....because nurseries have opened up once again, selling beautiful flowers and plants and there is a splash of colors everywhere....so this weekend was all about feeling the wind... smelling the flowers :),.... visiting a nursery and bringing some more of them(flowers and plants) home...I brought a begonia home and couldn't wait to show it  to you..
 clicked pictures in the evening itself,...though I do believe that a picture of it in the morning  would have been much better, ....:)
And before I close ....Here's Wishing a very Happy Mahavir Jayanti and Ramnavmi to all who celebrate...

The Green Thumb Decor !

Now this one is again something I have been thinking of doing since the first week of April , who's the inspiration???.... Once again Patty of coloursdekor and my pal Neha of allthingzbeautiful, since the time I saw Neha's gorgeous green thumb decor on Patty's blog ....I was interested in doing this ...though nothing compared to Neha's beautiful decor, I in my own way try to incorporate plants into almost every corner of my home....inherited from my father , my love of gardening compels me to keep my house green ,....wherever I may be....hope you enjoy what you see ...:)


My knick knacks ...





There it is three of my creations together ..in my favorite colors....a madhubani painting , a flower art and my kalamkari lamp , all in acrylic...
and after a long time I feel I did justice to my mom's embroidery..by putting it in the right frame...more closer look later :)

Weekend Wrap Up ! :)

Generally, all our weekends are full of people....we both love to  host and we both love to be around people...and mostly we like it to keep it comfortable.....so what better place than home..:)

I usually don't remember taking pictures of all that I do to host a party , whether its the dessert or the appetizers I  prepare or the flower arrangement I do :) but somehow this Saturday when I hosted a birthday party for my friend ...I did take a few pictures specifically :) ..because...I was so very inspired by the weekend wrap up  party at Colours Dekor..:) Here's a glimpse...







And yes:) here I am :) linking it to the coloursdekor

What have you been up to ??

Man of the moment MS Dhoni, I was bowled over by the grit determination and simplicity ....his winning six , captains knock,and the ease and cool with which he lifted the World Cup, handed it over to his teammates... and quickly disappeared from all the limelight, giving his teammates all the space to enjoy and savor all the attention of media and the crowd.....
Talking about Indian cricket will be incomplete without mentioning the legend, Sachin Tendulkar.Well! you cannot not talk about him ...It was his World cup as all his teammates rightly said....his poise and determination both on and off the field has been exemplary throughout these years ...it was  a  delight to watch him let loose his composure and jump with joy and cry and laugh loud.....after all THIS was his big moment.. one which he longed for 22 years.

Wow! all these comments coming from a non cricket buff like me ???....hmm... ok....I don't know much about the game ..but I believe every Indian is attached to  it in one way or the other...mine is an emotional one....My dad and brother.. such big fans of the game ...I have been hearing stories of "83" for such a long time ...that winning this one I felt was not only a tribute to the legendary players of that time but also to my dad...it felt good to tell him that dad now at least this generation also has a story of its own to tell ......He is a Happy man!! and so is every Indian .....

 A post on a design blog is never complete without some beautiful designs/pictures ...so here's some glimpses of what I have been doing at home ....

 Hanged an old work of mine on the wall...

Been taking pictures....this one came out good ...I think ..

Added a new piece to my collection of collectibles..a Harley Davidson..made out of wires ...

and making a Mosaic Mirrror...hope to show you the finished look very soon :)...
