Sneak peek - my new digs in Seattle!

TWO MONTHS????? Its been 2 months since I posted?
Is anyone still left out there reading my blog? I doubt it, cos if I were you I'd have abandoned me a long time ago. Seriously.

So if you are there, reading this, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It means a lot to me.

Ok, so here is a quick sneak peek of pics to come this weekend. Pics of our new home in Seattle. Many of the things you see will be familiar, but the setting is different. I am still working on the bedrooms, and those pics will be up in a week or so. But the main living/dining.family room/kitchen areas are done.

Here are just a few pics to whet your appetite.







Come back on the weekend. I promise lots of pictures. And its so good to be back blogging, even though it took me 10 minutes to figure out how to post!!!!!

Beautifully done Kamini ... I moved into a new apartment nearly 4months back and still haven't unpacked enough/set up stuff .. This post (as all you other posts) is going to be my inspiration :)

Kamini said...

Thanks all. But the next set of pics wont come easy...you have to see all the hard work that went into it first....boxes and boxes and tons of packing paper.

For those asking about the lamp in the first pic - base from Seattle someplace (maybe Pier 1 or Cost Plus, it was years ago), the shade is from India. Its a black/white embossed leather one from a crafts bazaar in Hyderabad, with Ganesha on it. Will post a close up later. It became a huge source of inspiration to my late FIL before he died. His dementia was so bad, it substituted as a prayer room for him cos of the Ganesha figure :( Every time he passed by the table it was on he touched it as if he was in the prayer room. Sorry for this long winded explanation.....

This is for "Anonymous" asking about the rugs.

The two you see in the pic with the daybed and copper pot - you won't believe - were just given to me by some friends of my parents. They had just sold their house and the rugs were rolled up and kept in the side to be "given away". I asked if I could see them....and I loved them so they just gave them to me. They were bought in Hyderabad about 30 years ago I think.
