Did it!!

I thought this must be done at least once a year lest we forget.

Till such time that we or one of us tires of it or are unable to do it

The last time we did it was in April 2009



I kept my promise to myself.........


Yesterday in between the heavy rains in Chennai and my tight schedule with clients I procured this poolajadai ( flower plait) for Anush to deck up and have fun with... with jhumkis this time, as usha had suggested last time....

"I look like a Bharatanatyam dance girl amma!!"

Shankari said...

I am guilty! Of having been on that page before and probably not having commented! I LOVE your chennai house and I dream of building that wooden platform in our flat in bangalore when we decide to move in there :) You have a real flair for home decoration..maybe you can help me set up.. we are eagerly waiting for that house possession..should get it early next year!
