Treasures of the deep

I am always so facinated by the different colours of pearls one can find. I love pearls even though I don't wear any jewelry in pearls or for that matter I don't wear much jewelry or own much. So this time when I found these treasures a project started taking shape in my mind. You will have to wait for sometime for me to show anything regarding that as I am busy finishing a doll. Sorry can't show you the doll either as it is for a challenge. All I can say is that I hope it will be magical for the lucky doll that will have it.

Linda's post reminded me...

Reading Linda's post just reminded me to show you my Easter cactus which is blooming now.
and these are some lovely flowers . I am not a good photographer like Linda so forgive the quality of the pictures.
I think this one is the prettiest. The colours look almost as though they are painted on it. Can' t remember what the name of the flower is.

My Dotees

In Dollstreet doll club we are doing a swap on Dotee dolls. The rules are as follows 1. The Dotee must have a fabric body, a hanging loop, and a 'tail'. 2. Make one to three dolls to trade. 3. Make the doll body between 3" and 6" long and no clay face. So this is what I did. I am not sure if they are what they should be but I liked this shape and made the dolls. They did not turn out as I had planned either but that is not surprising either lol! Oh I just realised that I have to add a handmade charm to it. So will do that later.

Beach Front

Hello everybody. I am back and hope you all are well. I shall catch up with you all over the next few days. In the meantime here are some pictures on the beach front in Chennai. People come here in the evenings to get some fresh air and to get away from the oppressive heat in the city during the evenings. This doggy was oblivious to my presence and to a million others while he took his nap on the beach. Corn being roasted.
Bhajias of pepper and other vegetables are being made here. (Bhajias)
Colourful baloons for the kids.

I liked these flower arrangements so thought I'd share these quickly. Tried to take the shot without the security guard but he kept coming into the picture I just about got it but could not miss his feet lol! Sorry for the grainy pictures as I took them with my mobile.

Summer time

It is hot hot hot here... thought I'd just share this picture I took of the sun from the little garden that we have at the side. It is a sun trap area and gets really hot when the sun it high up on the sky. Sorry the picture is not great as I took it with my mobile phone.
