keeping me warm

i'd be lying if i didn't say that a beautiful picture from Shalini hadn't inspired me to want the quietness and the warmth that was so hauntingly portrayed. so, i put on my creativity dupatta and came up with this.


two glass jars, crystal salt (always found at home to clean the aquarium filter), some pink food colour, tea lights and i sometimes light these up for my solitary breakfasts of tea, toast and rain!



as if we actually wear all those hats :D

Thank you so much dearie. You're quite an inspiration to me too. For some reason the first pic isn't opening properly for me.....I can only see the top bit. Probably my connection...will come back to check it after a while.

I love how creative you are with the crystal salt and food color. I too want a breakfast of tea, toast and rain, especially the rain part. And yes, sometimes the solitary part too....instead of E tugging at my leg or sitting under my chair and playing peek-a-boo. Ok, that last one is just too irresistible...but can I have some rain?

Came back to see the first's gorgeous....especially the curve of the leaf.

thank you!

wishing you rain and peek-a-boo.

dozed off while putting the kids to sleep and woke up to the sound of a tap running. turns out, had yet to shut the living room windows and it was the rain, falling heavily and sounding louder in the quiet of the night!
