Anticipation of Autumn festivities...:)



Maroon, saffron and burnt red
...olive green,
with a hint of rust 
and the rich golden glow...:)





a Makrana (Rajasthan , India) marble clock
and fabrics from Kutch (Gujarat, India)
burst of colours
warmth and vibrancy...!!:)










 Welcome Autumn 
the season of festivities...:)




[Makrana is a town in the Nagaur district of Indian state of Rajasthan, which is famous for the white marble mined from the mines around it. It is said that the Taj Mahal was built from Makrana marble.
Kutch, situated in the border region of Indian state of Gujarat, is world famous for its 'mirror work' embroidery done by the native women.]

Beautiful blog!! And these are the shades of red that I like. Many years back I learned to call it "India Red". It's a color all of it's own.
Thank you for the visit!! Have a great day.

P.S. I also use tumeric in my coffee as per recommendation from my physician, Dr. Swarup. It seems to be a great healing spice.

As always I'm Loving your burst of Color! I'll be doing a Post soon on an amazing fabric Score I acquired... I'm going to do some more research on it before I Post about it, but I think I know what it is & I was delighted to discover it & get an amazing price on it... {It looks to me to possibly be a Tribal Wedding Gown from Southeast Asia, perhaps Hmong but I am not certain yet)... it is MAGNIFICENT and I can't wait to show it off in the Land Of Blog!

Looks like you are ready for the Durga Puja.

Greetings, Sanghamitra! I love typing out your name. I've got the spelling completely memorized now, so my fingers just jump around on the keyboard with ease! The photos are beautiful! I'm still trying to work up the nerve to create a table with Indian flair. I don't want to do it until I feel confident that I can do it justice. Looking at your post each week helps to fill my head with ideas and colors! Have a wonderful weekend!

Patricia Torres said...
