They are all women!! – Purvi Sanghvi

Purvi Sanghvi. The Other Side. Creative. Talented. Someone who actually does think out of the box. She makes jewellery out of nibs. As in ink pen nibs!! It is been a while since I posted about those that make up effortless friendships in my life – I met Purvi through a mutual friend on an online […]

Creative Gaga – May/Jun 2014

Thank you Pragya Bharti for the product feature in the May-June 2014 issue of the Creative Gaga Magazine. I have long admired this magazine so it feels wonderful to be in featured in it. Though I am not totally convinced about the title to the page – ‘Spend Thrift’. But I understand it’s a regular […]

‘Swishing’ Skirts

I have learnt much from my maternal grandmother (nani). A large part of who I am is because of her. What she taught me about drive and commitment at age 8 is something that makes me – me! I grew up with my nani making clothes for me and I learnt the basics at her […]

I opened that box – finally

It was almost like opening Pandora’s’ box – till I took this really deep breath and calmed down some. I have mentioned earlier that I find it hard to get rid of things that could still be re-purposed. So I have been saving fabric – bits and pieces for decades now. Some got used up […]

My father too is an ex-Indian Air Force pilot. My grandfather is ex-army. My brother’s father-in-law too was in […]

Suzani – Now in my colours

These two chairs are a pair that were passed down from some distant relative at some time or the other. One of those temporary furniture options for a temporary house kind of thing. Except the chairs just stayed on. They were truly old world with a Sunmica back rest and woven plastic netting – in […]

Suzani Chairs

Suzani is everywhere. The ‘it’ graphic and pattern for the season it would seem. I had the same idea six months ago when these 30 year old chairs were given a new lease of life. As I mentioned in my previous post, I am late in telling you all of these chairs. In fact there […]

Newspaper and holidays

I am really late in posting these pictures. The kids are back in school after their winter break. Thick in the midst of school madness. The germ of this idea actually started six months ago during their summer vacations! Yes, I realize I am really LATE in posting these images 🙂 The two months of […]

It’s cold out there…

In my mind a warm hug can cure everything. Ok maybe not everything. But it sure makes hard times easier to handle.     There are a total of 5 blankets. The remaining two (not pictured) are variations of the black and white one. Can you spot the ‘Poonchh’ logo on them? 🙂 These blankets […]
