Store review - Craftsvilla

If you guys have seen my home ,you all must be knowing that i love Indian Hanicrafts,so when I heard from Craftsvilla to feature them on my blog I was elated  as this Online store has everything Indian.
The main aim of Craftsvilla is to bring the artisans directly to the consumers,artisans decide the price and Craftsvilla help them to open their online store by providing them web space.
With 500+ shops and 50,000+ products to  choose from ,i guess you all will be spoilt for choice.
I am sharing my personal picks from the website 

I love collecting trinket box and this marble jewellery box looks perfect to keep necklace and rings.
this Potli bag was on my  wish list since long

and I adored the Jhumkas in all hues in the Meenakari section.

So guys what are you waiting for ,hop on to Craftsvilla and get mesmerised by their products.

book i read - Silent Raga

Its been quiet long since i came across a really good book,
but when i saw this book in library i just took it
and thus i met Janaki and Mallika the two characters of the book
through their eyes i saw the culture of Tamil Brahmins
relished the food on banana leaves
felt the pain which they went through and
 heard the Silent Raga too.

Do read this book and get mesmerised,
perfect for a rainy evening with a cup of chai and some chips.

Book Name - Silent Raga
Book Author - Ameen Merchant

wall decor with cushion cover

Last time when i had been to Delhi i bought some cushion cover

s but they were small for the cushions which i had at home ,so one noon i thought of sticking them on the blank wall in our living room  with the help of blue tac and thus i did .
one right in front of the Ganesha corner near the entrance foyer

 and the other opposite the wall where i have stuck my Ganesha painting ,so this is how the hall looks now :-)
