Girls and Golu

Anush and Aditi are having fun - dressing up, visiting other golus, eating chundal and so on .

The rangoli on the left plank is by Anush!

Aditi is on Anush's car and in a smocked dress made by the blind from a school in Chennai. As Anush says, "....with seeing itself we make mistakes, it must be so difficult for them!"

She had great fun- did the painting herself- mould work was with her father- that was indeed a thoughtful gift

not a very big collection Art, just some traditional dolls that my mom sent over 5 years ago. Have never made a trip to India during this time, hopefully one day and I will be able to collect dolls to my heart's desire :)

Rad also had a frock made from my mom's blouse peice :) Both kids look so cute and little bonda looks absolutely delish!
