A corner from my home ..

Actually a corner of my kitchen counter, truth be told,  but for dramatic effect I went with the above headline 🙂

These are tube rose ( rajanigandha)  from my backyard.

This vase is actually a water jug but I never used it as a jug . It was a present from my neighbor before we moved to our house . I love this jug/vase , so gorgeous and all those colors !!!

The framed picture , pardon me for the poor light ,my 8 yr old son drew it.

Hope you liked this corner of my kitchen.


A long awaited vacation coming up ..

This week , is the week, we all are waiting for a long time..it’s Thanksgiving time here, so my kids have the whole week off and we are off to Las Vegas tonight and coming back on Friday 26th, then Saturday we have a dinner party at our house that too we have been looking forward to spend some good time with a few friends..

Last week was gone in painting a room only..I am not a pro and it took me long than I anticipated..it turned out like this..

(The walls are this color now, except one side, that will remain white but the other 3 sides are colored..it’s Behr’s “Chianti” !)

(The TV will go in this wall )

(That white wall will remain white, we use our projector there !)


Now a glimpse from my winter vegetable garden..




(Cabbage sprouts, I planted the seeds 2 weeks back )


(lavender, I don’t know how to preserve those, anybody has any ideas !!)

A trip to Starbucks ..


(that Pumpkin Cheese Muffin was really yummy !)

and a lovely package of this in my mail from a very dear friend..thank you..


I would say a wonderful weekend.. though it rained most of the time..next week I guess I will have lots of pictures from Las Vegas and my dinner party, this time I will definitely remember to take pictures before guests come in, unlike Diwali …

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 !!!
