A Bit Wordy Wednesday

This Halloween pumpkin face flower pot was given to me by Kaddu as a giveaway for the winning a quiz to celebrate the 600th  post on her blog. Since, her pet name is Kaddu, which is the Hindi word for ‘pumpkin’, and the mnemonic of her blog is a grinning ‘Halloween pumpkin’ face, she painted this jar in her official ‘blog avatar’ pattern. Such a creative, apt and unique gift! Appreciate the effort you must have taken to make this gift, Kadambari, which is simply perfect. Love it. In fact it is the first indoor plant in our home and the excitement to take care of it, see the little flowers bloom is a wonderful new experience for us. Thank you for this amazing gift.Recently, there was this fun thing going around on Facebook. It was called Creative Pay-It-Forward! According to it, the first ten people, living in India, to comment on that status would receive, sometime in this calendar year, a gift – perhaps a book, or baked goods, or most likely something handmade- a surprise! There would be no warning and it would happen whenever the mood struck! The catch? Those 10 people must make the same offer in their FB status.A lot of friends shared this on their Facebook walls and I was lucky to be among the first 10 on Priyaa’s wall. And early this week, I received this surprise gift from her.


Priyaa from Happy Moments… Well Mostly! was inspired to make these book-marks for me after seeing the Spine Poetry on my blog. It was so thoughtful of you, Priya to send me such a meaningful gift. Truly appreciate it and you couldn’t have chosen a more perfect gift for me. Thanks a lot. Aaryan has loved the yellow and blue one and has decided to take it with him to his Boarding School.
