I feel like I’ve not posted a DIY in ages. So to make your home sparkle in the New Year, I’ve found this easy, natural, solution to polish tarnished brass and loving the idea that it’s completely chemical-free.
Ganesha on canvas is probably one of my most favorite painting. I have mentioned this in my first Ganesha painting post that I wanted to collect little idols of Ganeshas and have a shelf full of them as items of home decor. And since I could not get them here in the US, I decided to paint them! Continue reading
My love for plants, planters and my patio makes me do these things. And I enjoy every bit of it. My last DIY post focused on reusing and recycling, you can see it here. So here’s a slightly different tutorial post.
I wanted a luscious big money plant or Epipremnum aureum for my patio. They just look so green and full of life with the beautifully shaped leaves. But for this, I needed a plant stand.
Presenting my recycled ‘regal’ planter. When you get scotch in such a beautiful container, you care less about the scotch. That’s just me! Continue reading
Let me introduce my famous foursome. These are my fashion-forward planters. Continue reading
Painting can be most relaxing. I sort of knew this, but I better experienced it at Paint Nite. Well, what is Paint Nite? Continue reading
Summer is here. Temperatures are soaring. (I hear on Monday it will be 90 F).The sun seems to be shining right on top of our heads already. But then it IS summer! Summer means no school, more fun and lots of activities. (yes yes, swimming pool, I am coming!) But before I tell you what inspired me to make this design for my first succulent planter, parents take note. Fret not thinking “What am I going to do all of summer?! No school, no camp, kids at home!!” This could be one of the activities you could engage them with. 🙂
As I have mentioned in ‘About Me’ I like painting. But I have not mentioned my love for gardening.I have been gardening and self-learning the do’s and don’ts for three years now and have accumulated quite a few terracotta and clay planters. This spring I decided our patio needs a makeover. And I wanted to achieve that by indulging in what I am obsessed with now – painting terracotta planters or pots.
I like flowers. Not to the extent that I want everything in floral patterns but in small doses, yes. But I was awestruck at the pretty-ness of Cherry Blossoms when I first saw them! I think it is the only flower design which I will not mind having on my table covers, plates, curtains, as wall photos etc. (Or maybe, that’s not such a good idea after all, I can imagine the look on AB’s face if he came home to see his house look like a cherry blossom festival. Hmm.) Anyway, moving on. Now, how did cherry blossoms turn my ‘Monday blues’ to ‘Monday magenta’? We will see..
Here’s presenting my Ganesha Series, which also happens to be the first set of art I did for my home. It is close to my heart and I hope to add on to it in the future and, hopefully, when I have a ginormous wall. (Imagine how many Ganesha paintings could fit there!)
