MAgiC aND Us

it is sweet spring night with the sweetest spring breeze
there is a pretty pink paper with my name on it
I can see the magic weilding within us, right here and now

the flowers make me blush and the trees make me sway
I am in too much a rush to make you stay
I can see there is some magic within us, right here and now

there is a good ole note waiting on your table
and a gift in pink paper with a fancy label
I want to make the magic happen for us, right here and now

You get me shoes and you get me dresses
you get me flowers and take me places
I can see you work the magic for me, right here and now

This is a very busy street with lots of people
but I can only see you of all the people
I can see the magic in your eyes for me, right here and now

a little bit vodka and a little bit wine
I am all tipsy when I stand with you in a line
And then we share a smile with a thosand words inside
So I know we make some magic all the time, right here and now

Lovely Felt Coasters - or whatever you would like them to be

Hey there,

 Yes i have been away - A LOT. But this took me out of the MIA stage - felt coasters at How About Orange. I simply could not pass them up.

Get the tutorial and free pattern download here for the small coaster and here for the bigger one. Love the results. I have to find a felt source in India or online at least. Help anyone?

New Blog find

Hi there,

Can you see all the creativity here on blogland? I mean I find something new and interesting almost each day. My reading list has grown to 117. That is just too much to read in a small day. Here is my newest find: The House That Lars Built.

Check out the pure genius behind this idea:

A friendship bracelet style rug? If THAT is not genius what is?
Found via Poppytalk.


Best Friends

I am in love with these guys. I found this site via ShoAndTell. These little guys (Haru and Mina are their names) are brothers and their father - the photographer, Hideaki Hamada has documented their adventures since a few years. You will love seeing the archives. They are so adorable and cute, I can hardly stand the cuteness. In the photographs they ooze out so much attitude and innocence. And that look glee everywhere which is unique to children. And as Shoko mentions, they look more like best friends.

My favorite season

Hello dear awesome people,
How have you been? I have been utterly uninspired to blog, since I am not 'creating' or 'learning anything'. Hence the lack in posts. But I am back and well into spring :o) Don't you just love this season. I feel so fresh every morning with the crisp wind through the windows (not that it has inspired me to wake up early and go exercising), birds chirping everywhere (here I am ignoring a few annoying pigeons who have made troubling me very much the aims of their lives) and the blossoms everywhere, I mean when do you get to see SO MANY COLOURS?  I see bright yellow hues and purple, the dusty powdery purple and a real beautiful white and pink on blooms everywhere.
And have you heard of the 'Palash Tree' or very rightfully called the 'Flame of the forest'. Let me give you an idea. What do you think? It's gives yours eyes a feast of bright, beautiful orange colour which you cannot take your eyes off. It's is precisely this season in which the tree is stripped off all it's leaves leaving these breathtakingly beautiful flowers behind, creating a scene as if the forest is on fire. These are a vital part of the festivities at Holi, the festival of colours. It is one festival which should be witnessed by everyone, for the sheer involvement of colour and pure joy. I have fond memories of celebrating Holi in my school days. It was supposed to be a very big deal (I don't even have a holiday this year *really angry face here*). Though I don't play it anymore, well not as much as I used to. It's still fun to observe people and try and identify, who's who at the end of the day :o)

 I wish you all a very happy Spring season. May you enjoy in your part of the world, as much as we are getting ready to enjoy it here.

 P.S - Stay tuned for a first DIY here. Here's a hint.
