now showing

"the tuesday afternoon bag"
  ain't it really really cool???

so this is the lovely view from my balcony these days...gulmohar trees are in full bloom!

 here is a pic of the lovely heart card/photograph holder that sonia of lively-wood gifted me on the last day of the black taxi exhibit...we shared the stall remember :)

oh btw found the missing camera charger after buying a new one....doesn't this always happen? i am sure there is a murphy's law for this!!!

the five days without internet were

soooooo boring!!! yes the broadband connection here was down for a whole 5 days and i cannot begin to explain how painful they were for me!
anyway for now i have switched back to my tata photon till the broadband is up and running again.. :) so here i am!!
these are pictures of our second room which husband and i use as our study/studio. just felt like sharing them with you....bad pictures and even worse a boring room!!! i desparately need to decorate it so need all you help and feedback please! i do like the postcards (from our travels abroad) on the wall...what do you think?

to begin with...i need need a soft board above the table (only problem being that i can't reach the wall while sitting at the table...my arms are too short an the table too wide). also needed is a nice lamp shade for the empty socket that you see..
since ours is not a study table....it is a dining table that we bought as we needed a big table for two....all the wires show from under the table and look so bad...what should i do to hide them....?? i couldn't get myself to upload a pic of the wire mess under the table.....don't want to scare you guys... ummmhmmmm.
my red basket which is overflowing with fabric at the moment...apart from this we have two huge steel cupboards (came as a part of the house..i hated them then....but now cannot do without) for storage...all my suitcases bags etc is one and my fabric and craft supplies in the other (have shared it here)

so now my lovelies...pls suggest.....what should i do to make this room more practical and yet stylish? remember that this is a rented house!

i am back

from a 10 day trip to delhi and what a trip it was! it is always good to be in that city....apologies to all the friends i thought i would have time to meet....but just didn't....there was a wedding in the family and then some work...since all my family is in delhi...its a mad mad busy time...i do hope you understand and forgive me this time!! :)

well now that we have that sorted :D...i arrived and my new tuesday afternoon was waiting for me...along with the wonderful diary i won over at seoul curry...
the yun diary is so cute....very well made shweta, thanks!!

what???? you don't know about tuesday afternoon still? let me introduce the company to you then....it is a bag and accessory brand run by the really talented designer from nift mumbai, called anuja mukim.

i met her at the black taxi event and fell in love with this half circle bag...mine is customized and is green on one side and pink on the other.....i wish i could share some pictures of my new treasures with you....but i have lost my camera charger in between delhi and pune..so the pics will have to wait.

for now here are some pics from tuesday afternoon's fb page...do visit and happy shopping!
