Spring Decor

A quick and easy spring décor

I found some fallen branches during my occasional after lunch walks. I used those sticks to make a quick spring décor, with some pretty pink construction paper cut into flowers.

Easter Decor

A little late to post an Easter Egg décor.  But before I totally forget about it, I should write what I did for one of the Easter décor around the house.

 Behind my office there is a beautiful trail along the canyon. Usually during my occasional afternoon walks, I find beautiful things, wild flowers, interesting plants, sometimes rocks for my kid's rock collection and sometimes even rattle snakes. Ok, I have seen a rattlesnake only once behind my office, but lot of other people have seen many times.I have to admit, I changed my walking route after I saw the rattlesnake.

Fabric Flower

I love this fabric flower, because how full the flower looks. I have used these flowers on my daughter's hair clips, embellishing my sweaters, my bags...  endless possibilities..:)

Simple Potato Fry (Aloo Bhujji)

This is a simple potato fry dish which is made in lot of Indian homes.  Its easy and quick to prepare and tastes really good. My kids love it, just like they love French fries...:) I could  say this is an Indian version of French fries. Well its not deep fried, but the way I cut the potatoes is like you would cut for French fries and what's an Indian food without little spices...:)

Love of Jute.

Love the natural look of jute. I started by wrapping one of my kid's plastic balls with jute. I loved how it looked, so wrapped some more, this time I used a Styrofoam ball I had. Then I placed it in a bowl along with my collection of ceramic balls.
