My new love - the swing

I've dreamt of this day forever... 
I've always wanted to have a little wooden swing of my own...

Remember, I was telling you about The Attic
Thats where this beauty comes from. It was ordered for me, so I felt super special about it...

And it holds a prime space in my home!! 

Now tell me what you think?

I sure hope you like it!!

Some corners

Here are some blank corners of my home, where I do eventually plan on doing something...

What.... I'm not sure as yet... but for now.. I'm enjoying the bare walls.. 

This is the only nice wall... 

I also think this wall is a little bare, but seriously don't know what to do!! 

This cabinet ... started off as my horse collection a few years ago... But this is all I have!! 

So, what do you think I should do with this wall??

Mirror wall

Mirror, Mirror on the wall.... *smiles*

I found this new custom / boutique furniture store in Dubai, called The Attic 
And that's where I found these gorgeous mirrors. I won't lie, if I say I picked one in every colour.
I simply couldn't stop!!

This reminds me, I should actually make a list of furniture shops in Dubai, or rather my treasure hunt places. Would't that be good??

Below, is the give-away from my cousins wedding. Isn't it such an impressive wedding favor? 
Lightbulb Events organised the event, and the below giveaways were sorted out by the team Indya Kaleidoscope.

So back to the mirrors... 

I got all these mirrors from the Attic, and then put them together on the wall making a lovely collage with mirrors & candles. 

Do you like what you see?? Wait till you see the end results!!

Ganesha Collage Wall

Featuring the 'Ganesha collage wall' from Pinkz Passion

Here is what Pinkz Passion has to say :

The wall opened up a steam of variety to pour in my list of criteria for decking the creative art pieces of our artist daughter.  To keep the touch of warmth and personality of our daughter (which we will appreciate every day in her absence) unique composition of frames now adorn this wall.

Hop over to Pinkz Passion to see more of this beautiful wall.

Another corner

Last week, I was telling you about my carpet. So here it is... one weekend, Harshi & I went on a treasure hunt to the Blue Souq in Sharjah. 

Just the wrong place for two absolutely mental people to go... That said.. we were good.. and didn't walk out with much. Lets not ponder about what all we walked out with... except.. for this lovely carpet.. 

There's something about the carpet that I love... It makes the room bigger, brighter, happier. 

Don't miss my daughters painting on the bench... LOL

For a change, I've decided nothing needs to match... the turquoise cushions can sit side by side, with pink & red.... and a rather red or maroon carpet...*smiles*

The mis match is making me happy... somehow!!

Weekend Corner

I always feel this corner is crowded. Do you??

Saying that I like the blue pot on its chinese looking stand. 

These diyas .. and the Durga are special gifts.. 

More importantly, this henna candle is designed & created by my dear friend Anpu. And she sent it all the way... Feeling blessed!!

This Natraj is a special find as well. Preethi from Indya Kaleidoscope, went on a treasure hunt for me. The work on the base on the Natraj will leave you mesmerised.. 

So this is how it looks all together... Nothing on the wall... just a huge natraj. 

Falling into place... one corner at a time!

Fusion Wall Art

Here is something I've been working on for a while now.What do you think?

A collection of photos from my travel to Jaipur - coz I simply love Jaipur ...

These two cow heads are from Bangalore - Aren't they cute??

I love arranging frames on the wall, and putting up random stuff... Saying that, this certainly took us a while... I had a few different bronze items to put up... but decided to keep them in my closet for now.. 

This is how the room looks now.. 

I know.. I know.. I know the cushions dont match the rug. But nothing really has to match. 

Oh.. and I got this rug from the Sharjah Souq. You should go there.. its such a lovely place to find treasures!! 

Have you shopped for treasures lately?

Hello Monday

To start with, I was not sure what to call this post. 

I have many excuses for not blogging, don't know which one to talk about here.. *smiles*... 

From life generally being busy, to my camera stopped working, and I'm grown a little too lazy... to many many more... *smiles*..

So I'll spare your ears this time... 

Here is a little rickshaw I got from my holiday in Sri Lanka... sometime last year. 
We had such a lovely time in Hikkaduwa... The beach was serene... Oh how I miss holidays.. 

So here is my new priced possession on top of a pile of books.. Oh the books have  story too... 

What else happened... 

I got a small little listing on Blog Adda for this DIY - 10 Home Decor ideas for a beautiful home
This was a simply DIY frame.

I'm on instagram regularly now... so if you are there as well, do connect with me on instgram @ patricia_torres27

So tell me what has been happening at your end??
