The Weekly Story ~ wk 98

I simply haven't had time to do anything this weekend... *sigh*... and I really do mean it. Sims performed her first Kathak piece and I was busy helping.. rather playing my part as a mommy coordinator for the show... So its been a busy weekend....

But I'm looking forward to a slightly slower week... a week of clearing and preparing for the festive season...

Oh.. and talking about the festive season... you know I've been preparing for a while now... 

Sharing with you today... the drama on my 'mango wall'.... *smiles*

the bench has finally found a place of pride... 

I asked a few friends... what comes to their mind when I say 'India'... and here are the images I got in return... simply printed out of google... 

Sorry... the pics were clicked this morning... Sunshine pops in to say 'namaste'... 

The 'Limboo Mirchi' you see in the frame above is from 'Aarohi Singh'. This painting and a few others are on sale as paintings or prints... Do check out her site for more details.. 

I am now beginning to believe that she is not just an amazing painter / artist ... but an awesome person as well... Thank you Aarohi... 

Christmas gift from my little cousin... finally finds a space... 

Truly the whole wall evolved around this gift... The idea started off with... how can I place this on the wall... and hence the mango square... and other things Indian.... 

Do tell me what you think... you know I love hearing from you!! 

Eventually I will put up some of my own pictures... but for now.. I simply didn't have the time for that.. *smiles*... 

I'm going to visit you this week for sure.. I promise... so till then... grab the weekly button and join the party... *smiles*..
