Diwali hangover .....

Work, work and more work . It never ends . I just took time off from household work for sometime to share few things .

After dropping Anshita to a Bday party last weekend, we both went for a little more shopping. I got these decor pieces .
I loved these colorful glass jars instantly when I saw them .

This golden decorative platter was very attractive .

I took this crackled glass for the new showcase . Pictures in the end .

On Diwali, Anshita made this Rangoli outside the front door .  Isn't it beautiful? It was a 1 hr laborious work for an eleven-year-old . She did a great job :)

This Diwali sweet box, which Raj got from office, did not have company name printed on it . I liked the design so just removed the tag on it and decided to reuse it for my crochet pieces.

I would like to show the corner showcase we made in our new flat . The specialty is that the focus lights are at the bottom instead of top .

Here, Can you see the purple piece? The white one inside is the focus light . The purple piece is wooden laminate for supporting the base of the object .

The terracotta lantern in the picture was painted by me and Anshita sometime back with glue and glitter powder . 

I love this miniature banana tree which Raj got from Hongkong .

And when the lights are switched on, different colors/patterns are spread in each shelf . Isn't it wonderful? :) The camera hasn't captured the exact light effects but almost its near about the same . Most important thing is that I reused whatever items I had at home, except this crackled glass. 

I was able to complete five regular sized cushions before Diwali, not the second big cushion . I took photos in a hurry which aren't the best, so I need to take those again . I started some stitching but gave up as there was lot of work post the festival .

Thanks for seeing !!
Have a nice weekend !
Preeti :)
