Grateful, Creative and Happy

Dears, we are more than 100 now! To be precise - 101! Yes, I reached this milestone as well :) Thanks to all of you, who in spite of their busy lives, still find time to blog about this busy life, and in spite of different problems and difficult times, still support and inspire others. I'm grateful that at some point of time, I discovered blogging, though I always used to lead diaries, blog was a mean of communication with outer world, which helped me to reflect, recollect, realize things in my own life. In the end, I see that we all live similar days, celebrating same holidays, and becoming sad because of the same reasons.
Last Saturday I was happy because we spent great time with my D, roamed in the surroundings of our sector, had a nice lunch, bought yummy pastries and ... you know how it feels being with someone you are so in love with. My D of course kept his promise to mark my 100 followers, and we had a simple chicken-beer dinner the same evening. Very simple you see, even with news paper as a table mat :).
In a little more than a year I connected to a great number of creative people for which I'm grateful too. To spread the happiness I will definitely organize a giveaway in a week time, just let me prepare something good for you to give. It's going to be something of hand made of course, and a piece of India too.
Also, I made a jar cozy last weekend. As you see I used those nail polish colored pebbles as a base for t-light - worked well for this purpose!
 The jar itself spreads the patterned light on the table because of the glass design - a nice addition to a already cozy effect. Loving this simple jar so much now, and it looks good in the company of the crochet box cases I made two weeks ago.
 That's all for now, but I still have something interesting to share with you, and hope you'll like it. Today is my sister-in-law's birthday, so I wish love, health, and be happy always!
Wishing you all a happy week ahead, filled with love of your close ones.

  5. Anna is a century girl now !!! And what a way to celebrate. Wow! The jar cosy's sooooooooooo pretty. I have never tried this. But I have a few jars like this one. Will the jars break because of the t-light heat?

    1. Haha, when I read it I took it to my age..somehow sounds weird :) thanks, Aishwarya! You always encourage me.
      Well, the jar will not break if you place the t-light on some pebbles or other base, however glass will heat anyway. But don't be worried. Dabur has nice jars from honey, and the one i used is from marinated cucumbers :) I'd love to see your jar!

  8. That is such a pretty candle jar! Congragulations on the 100 followers, i remember how happy i was that time. I am so happy you got to spend some wonderful time with your D and the retrograde Mercury curse has n't affected you. Right over here everyone that i saw these days was a bit on the crazy side and i mean everybody, myself included(btw, i saw a lot of people!). But at least i am finally out of the funk and today i even went to the pool!
    On the other hand, the full moon you mentioned,drains a lot of people(especially if they were born under the waning fase instead of the waxing) and in order to stay energised you have to spend those three days in a very spiritual way(which is not always possible). I am the exact opposite, by the time the full moon comes i have so much energy that i have trouble sleeping some times. And when it passes it feels like someone took off the plug!
    Forgive the novel of a comment i left you!
    Have a blessed, beautiful, magical and creative week!

    1. Thanks!:)
      even I was feeling not great these days, but today seems better.
      Then I have to check out if I was born under waning moon, but no, before I used to feel differently from what I feel now during the full Moon.
      Not a problem, I'm happy to get nice long comments :)
      Same week to you too!

  11. Congratulations on the 101, dear! I am so glad you decided to blog as I just love the way you write. And your blog is now my go-to place if I am feeling sad, as you are always positive inspite of being in a faraway land with totally different customs. Enjoying even the simplest of things in life like the "newspaper as a table mat" tasty dinner. With all the lovely things you make your home must be really cosy and welcoming.
    Thank you for reminding me to host my giveaway too!!
    Love
