Instant Cheer...

Yes, I am talking about fresh juicy fruits & colourful fragrant flowers and the magic that they bring into our homes.
Today I share with you all loads of beautiful moments created by flowers & fruits in my home

Take out that old brass 'matka' or 'kalsi' and fill it up with seasonal flowers, just a couple of them will do the trick.
Let your creativity flow, write down happy notes;-)Don't have a brass vase, no worry go ahead and use empty glass jars......or empty wine/beer bottles. The brand lettering adds to the beauty. Add some whimsical touches, ceramic ducks picked up from a local fair...Don't have a florist nearby, no worries pick up some wildflowers from the roadside or some seasonal flowers from the trees:-)






No expensive curios needed. No designer artefacts.
It's the simple things in life that add that sparkle to your home and a smile to your face.These flowers and fruits certainly lifted my spirits on a rainy day like today!


Wish you all loads of happiness with vitamins and fragrance:-)

You are absolutely right, fresh flowers do the magic to add a class. But yes, your fruits shots/ideas also can give fruitful look.

I'm so glad u are back to blogging. Right now i'm feeling slightly off it & using the internet as a complete escape route. Seeing this simple-stunning beauty you've created is just the balm i need from all the firing and death i've seen on tv all day...

Hea Arch, I absolutely love all your blogs and was wondering if you plan to add the ''Follow this blog'' feature to rang decor and the other beautiful blogs of yours.
Would definitely be on your list. Cheers! Dee.

Hi Archana...you have a very beautiful sense of light and shadow - very evident in the photographs...suggest do a feature on earthen wares on the roadside...those are real delight to watch...

Rekha said...

Hi Archana,
I love the photos in all your blogs! I think you have a great taste in photography. I have been a regular reader of your blogs for the past one year, but never had a chance to comment here.
The way you transformed a small brass pot ("sombu") was awesome! I am going to try that in my home too! This article definitely brightened my chilly close-to-zero winter day here! :) Thanks for the great blogs!
Cheers,
Gayathri

Hey Archana,

I've been following your blog for a long time but just could not resist commenting on this post - it is beautiful - I've been meaning to keep some flowers in my room but looking for a vase - I will now utilise the matki my mum gave me to do what I have been longing to :) thanks
