Happy Monday ??

November 16, 2010 § 10 Comments

Is it really happy ?? or you dread it , getting back to the daily grind?? Well, how was weekend?

Mine ?? My pictures will talk for me ..


My friend gave me this beautiful, sparkly picture frame during Diwali.. So, I did this..

I put the frame in my corner table at our living room with other things.. now you might be wondering what is that in the frame.. well, that’s rakhi that my 2 boys got from their cousin sister during rakshabandhan, it was mailed via DHL from India, I wanted my boys to remember how they are loved by their cousin even being so far..

Though it’s been a year in our house but due to budget we never got a chance to set up our media room, but we are getting started. The paint has been chosen and bought, the first step to setting up is to colour !!! So I did this :

All ready to paint !! I will show you the pictures once it’s done !!!

And lots of coffee and reading all those wonderful blogs in this corner of the sofa ..


That’s all.. Now I will link this post up @ Patty’s “Weekend Wrap Up “ If you haven’t visited the blog Colors Dekor.. well, let’s just say you should !!!
