When Creative Juices Flow

Something comes out very interesting and amazing whenever creative juices flow in our lives. This happens in everybody's life at least once but for we creative peoples it happens every now and then. So in case of mine. I have to admit that I am obsessed with DIY projects and specially using aluminium foil. I have made lot  and lot of things using waste aluminium foil.

Today I'm sharing my latest DIY. In this project I used an earthen pot, most popularly known as Kulhar which is used as a cup for serving tea on railway station in North India and Maharashtra.
I covered this pot completely with left aluminium foil. Then made some designs by rolling foil and glued them on pot. This is how it looks


And now its adorning one of the corner in my living room.


This looks perfect with Krishna Radha statue.


Earthen pot + Aluminium foil = A beautiful art piece

One more DIY(aluminium foil) I have to show you so please wait and do frequently visit this space.

Wall Decor

Hello! dear readers. Hope all of you enjoyed your weekend at its fullest and mine was a very creative one. My hubby and I created a gallery wall  in our living room....it was fun drilling the wall and then hanging our memories in the form of lovely pictures. Then in the evening, we just sat on the couch, sipped a cup of ginger tea, kept looking and admiring the pictures that brought back so many memories.

Our living room has got a new look now. It looks so lively with all those pictures. I really loved the idea of putting up our family photographs, looking at those pictures brings a smile on our faces and relieves all the stress.

Here are before and after pictures.

Dull space


Now looks lively and cheerful


one more view
I am quite happy with it. As we bought this apartment 3 months back so it's like a big blank canvas that I have to fill with my imaginations and colours. Lot more to come ......watch this space frequently and leave me some encouraging and inspiring words.

Baby Proof Decor

This weekend I'm having guests over and I wanted to display few things from my collection but my baby didn't allow me to do so. My decor remains only for few mins and after that I find things lying here and there. All my centerpieces and knick knacks are still packed and lying in a cartoon :-( . I'm dying to see them and to take them out of that box.
But me being me I can't see my home in such a dull mood .....so I decided to go baby proof decor :-))
Have a look......


Center table without any centerpiece or vase :-(
How empty my center table is looking..........to get a better overall look I kept a picture, a fish clock and  vase made out of ordinary glass bottle (filled blue color in it) with gerbera in it on side table. This is how its looking...and I'm bit satisfied.
 


Kept in corner so that lil' one can't reach there

My decor is always incomplete without Ganesha so here he is....



Sitting silently under the Croton
Not able to figure out where exactly he is...... have a closer look...



If you have some more nice and beautiful ideas for baby proof decor then please share with me...... all ideas are welcome.
Enjoy your weekend freinds and stay creative!!!

Views to die for


Today I am sharing some pictures of the views from my balcony. Its a bliss to see the weather changing its mood right from my balcony. During rains it looks so beautiful that I couldn't resist taking pictures of ever changing views, overcast of dark clouds and sun playing hide and seek.





On sunny days it looks so warm and bright that I just love to sit on terrace and sip my cup of tea while watching birds and sunset.





And in the night it looks just wonderful with all twinkling stars and moon in the sky and hundreds and thousands of light glowing on the earth.

I really love all the views I see from my balcony from dawn to dusk and even in the night.

Thanks Weekend

What a lovely weather and I am all set to go green. I have posted about growing my dream terrace garden earlier.A big big thanks to this weekend it gave me lot of time to fulfill my dreams. I wanted Gerbera, Carnation, Palm, fern, Petunia, Jasmine and lots of ornamental plants in and around my home and this is just first step I took toward growing that garden of my dreams.




Gerbera is my all time favorite plant and icing on the cake is its blooming. It comes in wide range of colours orange, peach & yellow are my pick. Have a look.......



Jasmine and night flowering jasmine (parijat/harsingar)




Croton and Aloe vera


Unfortunately I don't know the name of this plant with pink flower it looks beautiful. If anybody among my blog reader knows the name of this plant then please let me know.



As I said this is only the first step toward growing a garden and its just a series of pots that I kept on my terrace. Lot to do.... I am going to create a landscape.... everything is on my mind and slowly I am going to execute it.
Loved this weekend as I indulged myself doing what I enjoy most.

Green green everywhere

As monsoon has arrived here in Pune, I can see lot of green everywhere. I am so in love with this lovely weather and greenery all around.

These days I google a lot about container gardening and planning to grow small but lovely terrace garden. My heart skips a beat whenever I see lot of green and lovely planters. Planters of various kind and colours add so much fun. Lot of planters and container gardening images are so beautiful that I just want to share them with all my blog readers. While searching for fancy planters and gardening I came across a master gardener Michelle Derviss's blog . She with her team creates magic in gardening world. Do check her website here.
