Assorted Pictures

Thank you for all your comments and offline messages asking when posting would resume.  I hadn’t planned on being away for so long; I had to leave at a short notice to my parents’ that left me with little time to schedule posts in advance.

This post is a collection of assorted images from this three-week long trip. My parents’ home, just like any other, is a treasure house of memorabilia and collectibles accumulated over the years from their stay in the Middle East.  Many of them are over a decade old, but still good enough to be reused and spruce up one’s mood.

This stainless steel vase is a favorite. Place a bouquet of fresh flowers, or plant a needlepoint ivy and imagine the difference it can make to a room.

Every year during Ganesh Chaturthi, Poompuhar arts and crafts (a handicraft showroom based in Trichy) organises an exhibition to showcase Ganesha idols.
