Ganesha at my home

Right from the time I got married which was almost two decades ago, friends and family have gifted me idols of Ganesha. Some we bought. So over the years, the collection increased. During festival times, creating special corners lends a whole lot of good festive vibes.

Sharing some of these corners with all of you. Flowers and plants always helps to elevate these corners. Have a look. Take cue from these and you can make your own arrangements during Navratri and Diwali. 

Do drop in a comment,  if you find these arrangements worth giving a try!

Festive vibes

Ganesh Chaturthi wishes to all.🌸🌼🌸

Every year I try to create a special Ganesha corner in my home during this time.

This year I gave form to Him using rice grains.

This is my way to thank Him for all the million blessings in my life. 

The process is simple. You can take any wooden base, ( here I re used an old roti maker) line rice grains in the form of Ganesha, use his favorite flower like the hibiscus to enhance his trunk and line up the space with lamps and more flowers.

In this way, nothing is wasted. After the festival is over you can use the same rice for cooking too.

Are you enjoying the image? Tell me in the comments. Shall wait to hear from all of you.

Another simple manner, to create his presence is thru rangoli or kolam. We usually draw rice Paste rangoli. This is my representation of Him πŸ™

Some more Ganesha corners in my next post. Stay tuned. Happy festivities everyone 😊

Enchancing a corner with a simple DIY


This corner does look beautiful what with the lights from the lamp and fresh gerberas and floating flowers. But the only eye sore I felt was the marble stand on which the stone uruli is placed. That does put me off! 

But is there anything that can't be tackled with a little DIY? And what better if it's a simple one.😊

Okay so now have a look at the next image. 

Tell me, does it look pretty now? To tell you the truth the marble stand is actually a roti maker or what we call chakla in Hindi.

So how did I pretty it up. The answer is in the following images.

Some peel and stick ons left over from an earlier project.

Chose the black and red one as it would go with the vase and flowers too!

The remaining edges were painted in red colour and tada you have a pretty good looking stand ready!

Wasn't that super easy and it was ready in flat 15 minutes!

Pour in your comments,  I would love to hear from you all.

Also, I really want you all to look at my instagram handle if you are not there yet.

Pichwai inspired wall canvases

Pichwai is a style of art that originated in Nathdwara, Rajasthan more than 400 years ago. Vibrant designs based on Lord Krishna's life is depicted on cloth. The word Pichwai comes from 'Pichh' meaning back and 'wai', which  means textile hanging. 

This pair of canvas depicting Shreenath ji and his cow have been sent to me by "TheArtment"

Not only do these lend a very ethnic appeal to your space but also gives a calming vibe to your entire home.

Jack fruit jam ( chakka varratti)

This post is going to be the first of its kind in my blog, solely because iam going to share the recipe of making jackfruit jam.

Now, this jam is my favorite and I always thought that it is some kind of an herculean task  to make it. Only when I tried it myself I understood its not at all difficult . Ofcourse I made a very small batch but taste was just too yumm! 

Now, as to why am I sharing this here more so when this blog is more about homes and green spaces. Well after it was made , I bottled it and kept it on my shelf . That scene warmed me up. Would you like to see how it added to the decor quotient? Scroll down to the bottom. But yes before that,  read the recipe.

Remove all the flesh from the jackfruit. Pressure cook them for about 2 whistles.  Mash it well. You can make a pulp of the jackfruit in the mixer. Now take equal and a little more quantity of powdered jaggery than the jackfruit . Mix and cook them well in a heavy bottomed pan. Add about 2 tbsp ghee  and cook till the mixture leaves the sides and the required consistency is achieved. Well, there you have your jam ready!

I used about 10 to 15 numbers of jackfruit flesh here. Accordingly you can adjust the amount of ghee. Isn't this an easy one?

So this was the image, I was referring to! 

Does it do justice to the decor part of the blog? Hope so! πŸ˜‰

A bunch of Singapore daisies and home decor

Hello June,

June for me is a month of abundance, what with rains in most part of our country! Rains ensure that new leaf unfurl, flowers dance in vibrant colour and there is a general 'joie de vivre' everywhere. 

The same for me is these pretty bunch of yellow Singapore daisies! It brings joy and hope. Recently, got this from our apartment garden, as it was being pruned. I rushed down to grab a few. 

On different days, they occupied different corners. Just changed the water everyday and they are sitting pretty inside a votive. Yes, no elaborate flower- vase arrangement.  Just a bunch inside water and notice how they transform the entire feel and look of the place.

Sharing images, tell me did you fall in love with them as much as I did?
