and thereby hangs a tale...

Last week we had been to The Egg factory. If you like eggs, it is eggcellent food. Great service. Eggciting Ambience. Has veggie options as well for those who do not like eggs. And the place does not smell of eggs at all! We were wondering if a large number of otherwise vegetarians ( some even no garlic like me) in India, eat eggs nowdays...

Read Jeffery Archer's latest and while it is not his best, it still makes for entertaining reading.

Here are some submissions for this month's Artsy Craftsy from the amazing Shruti:
1. A discarded Glass bottle transforms into a Vase ( use acrylic colours)


2. A watch box turns into a kitschy piggy bank

3. Broken Abacus to a bead necklace ( large holes- easy for kids to thread)

All the above are completely doable and mostly done by an almost 5 yr old.

I wonder what Aditi was thinking in that photo. Some very lovely and peaceful thoughts probably. Lovely photo, Art. And that glass bottle vase looks do-able, even to me!
