Locks when Winter creeps.
I think children are like sponge, they absorb everything easily. Let them absorb that which is positive. Thanks to my parents for inculcating in us the best, to be humane. Hope you liked my Haiku ;)

4. Chikan Kari: An integral part of Indian culture since 655 AD Chikan Kari was strongly rekindled by Moghul queen Noor Jehan in later date. It not only enjoyed patronization of the Moguls but also attained perfection as the exquisite needlework and hand work underwent further honing and refinement. Lucknow has still sustained an unrivaled supremacy in producing the finest Chikan in India. It is an art of hand embroidery done on men and womens apparels.
I"ve used marker pens.
#4 Picked by Teri
5. Elephant: Elephant is again very auspicious for us especially in Kerala. It is a part of all temple festivals. To make a ring from the hair of elephant's tail is supposed to keep at distance the 'fear' in children and adults alike. Hope you see a semi-kundan stone on the elephant's back:)
Used watercolor and semi-kundan stones.
10. Palki (Palanquin): This doesn't follow any tradition. It was an integral part of Indian wedding though modern matters have taken over these days. The bride was carried to her in-laws house in it. They were also used to carry the wounded from the battlefield and transport them. Today they are also hired during pilgrimage to carry the customers up the steep hill.

I received Some Gorgeous atcs from these wonderful Blogger friends and I would like to share my Ultimate joy with you. I was so overwhelmed that I sat holding them for sometime looking at it...dumbfounded. The envelopes itself were so very pretty:)
This Fabric atc is from Lynn. Its gorgeous and the feel of the fabric is just amazing. She also sent me a photo card. Lynn has her photo cards for sale in her blog. She has some extraordinary pictures to her credit. She's a wonderful quilt-maker too.Feel free to visit her blog to get a glimpse of her expertise.
This wonderful daisies came from Teri who is an ardent admirer of daisies. She also sent me a moo card..the tiny one with the picture of a log. There was even a pink daisy on the envelope.
Marianne sent me this wonderful and exquisite mandala. The tiny framed one is a 'Treasure'. As soon as my daughter saw that she grabbed it and said "I want it!! And I am ne'er going to give it back" with a naughty smile. This came to me for taking part in 'Pay It Forward', a game even I had posted in my blog which none took part :( else they would've got something from me too.
This is to show the wonderful stamps that came my way...thanks to my lovely blogger friends. I used to engage in philately when I was in school and college. Even now I collect it whenever I come across some nice stamps.

I think I've been concentrating entirely on fine art these days that I completely neglected my writing which by the way I am trying to refine. Please don't laugh at me. I really wish to write as fine as L'girl, Aniket, Cathy and Vesper. Not to forget l'tl Kriti. Since I started blogging I've put on hold my short stories to the entire dismay of my husband. So here comes the lash my friends...pls bear with me...

These are the glass artworks I worked on a month and half before along with the profile picture, Spring. This was taken before Cathy's tip about setting the flash off:)
Foliage is inspired from the greenery around my place back home. Passion is abstract, done on the spur of the moment when I wanted to do 'Something arty'...the thrid too, which I've not named yet. That was done at 12 in the night!!! Inspiration drops at all odd times:)
