Curtain tie back

I had a quick flash of idea this morning which i wanted to share with you all. I was in middle of cleaning of my cupboard (i am always and still its never clean :( ) and there were some odd pairs of bangles lying around colorful, bright and studded with all possible color of stones. Now my mother is dead against throwing bangles away and there is possibly no place left in house to keep these single pieces ..and lo and behold an idea struck why dont i use them as curtain tie back !!!

Just think about it they are colorful and sturdy and super cheap so i went ahead and did it  , bunched up the curtain and slid the bangles through , and guess what it looks super cool. Imgaine a stuck of different color bangles on ur curtain what a colorful statement to make.

Will share the photos of my curtain with bangles as soon as i click and upload ...but i am sure get the idea...let me know what you think of it.

P.S. works best with thick sort of curtain on muslin curtain might slip through

Summer Breeze makes me feel fine ...

So weather changed all of sudden , prediction of doomsday not withstanding ....its cool cool weather and i am loving it.

Took this photo from the rooftop of khimsar fort of a house in nearby village, loved how this colorful house stood out in that barren barren land and the 'toran' on the door flowing in the wind ....some thing very beautiful and enchanting

44 degree and going up

It's hot, super duper hot, kind of weather in delhi where you would just not want to step out of home, close yourself in a cool dark room and drink lot of cold lassi and watermelon juice and just pretend that nothing in the world is important enough to care..if only !!!

I am reminded of the bamboo mats that we used during these summer months , whether to sleep on the cold cemented floor during the day or take it up to terrace in evening and just lounge around in cool evening breeze or for elaborate wedding rituals of our dolls.

Bamboo mats have now evolved from the sad brown looking thing standing in corner to be multi colored aesthetically pleasing

colorful mats

As bathroom mats 

Table mats

as rugs ...,

so how about using some bamboo mats this summer to keep your cool and keeping your house colorful ?

Live joyfully without desire

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves
