Everything inspiring

                         Casper, my dog loves camera :)

It has been really cold since morning. I did not do much today except spening some time in the garden with Casper, my dog. Sun was shining, though not very brightly as it was a little cloudy. But it was good to sit and feel the softness of this winter sun. I must humbly say that I am lucky to have a garden. It is a place where I can sit and watch birds chirping and bathing in small water puddles, and squirrels running around chasing one another. What more would you want when your garden is an abode for peacocks, cuckoos and parrots.

Ruskin Bond in one of his writings says -

Live close to nature and you will never feel lonely. Don't drive those sparrows out of your verandah; they won't hack into your computer. 

Today I was reading a famous poem by William Wordsworth, known as ' Daffodils'. I had read this poem long time back during my school days. I would like to quote one paragraph:

I wandered lonely as a cloud 
That floats on high over vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd, 
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Flattering and dancing in the breeze.

I get mesmerised with the thoughts of flowers, birds, sky, ocean and everything which is related to nature. Look what I found today :) two beautiful feathers which will go in my stash for craft projects :))

Hi! How are you doing ? I wanted to share a cool DIY project I worked on a few weeks back. I was sifting through ideas to get my home closer to looking what I wanted it to look like when I moved here. After the initial setting up of things, and before we bought new stuff to populate the many vacant areas, I thought I'd first do something about objects lying idle and put them to good use. I started  with a remnant of a previously owned (and long separated) aquarium: its stand. I was practically stuck with the wrought-iron piece for over two years. While the aquarium was long gone, it had left behind its metallic abode to anti-decorate my previous living space and now this one! This sorry piece of metal was languishing in some corner of my house, gathering dust and my ire. The reason I did not dispose it off is...well...I don't know. To think of it now, may be it was because it had to transform into this new avtaar.

I had been craving for a bedside table for sometime now. When …
