Shopping Trip : Decorative Enamelware

      Hi everyone, How was the weekend... ?! I am quite delightful about the weekend that has gone on well for me - courtesy : a small shopping spree, ending up with some of my long-awaited home decor products. Shopping is something that I find really very very exciting, and actually helps me relax.. ;-) ;-) .

      My shopping find is an enamel-painted tray purchased at one of the stalls in the home decor exhibition 2010' that took place recently in chennai at the Chennai Trade Centre


The stall had a vast collection of fantastic enamelware in various shapes and shades with each and every piece unique in style and decor. I was really finding it difficult to choose between their items; with each of their product being very attractive. Finally the choice was made by hubby dear ('D')  - He  is obsessed with all shades of blue, that any artistic piece in blue appears gorgeous to him. So, we finally settled upon this piece...Wow , this  exactly fits my table, and I absolutely love it ....!!!!

The orchid flowers which can be used be either stuck on the walls or used as floating flowers were also purchased at the same exhibition. I bought them to be used as floating flowers ; but somehow stuck with the idea of putting them on my new tray as of now. Perhaps, some time later I will add two or three candles, to spruce up the arrangement.

I will be doing a post about the amazing people behind this enamel-ware and their products quite soon...!
So, what do u think of my shopping find....? ;-) ;-) ... Awaiting your comments ;-) ;-) !!!

Cozy Corner' September....

    This picture was taken at my parents place.. This is my favorite corner, where I used to spend most of my time...reading, watching TV,  chatting with family and friends.... I love the soft tones  and the floral  patterns used in the upholstery and the way it teams up with the color of the wall...


How I love to snuggle up in this comfortable sofa-cum-bed......!!!

Cottage Emporium - An artistic haven

The Central Cottage Industries Emporium is a one-stop shopping destination which houses authentic and beautiful masterpieces made by skilled artisans from all over the country and is popularly known as "CCIC", "CCIE" and "Cottage Emporium". This is an ideal place to shop for souvenirs and take back lovely memories of India. One can find everything from furniture, pottery, rugs, silver work, sarees, toys, shawls, silk scarfs..traditional paintings here...

The store stands in three levels and all the items are beautifully displayed in separate sections, but what makes it a different shopping experience here, is the variety of goods that you find here and the shopkeepers don't nag or pressurize you to buy anything. You are free to stroll around and pick any item of your choice... !!!  Also, this is an ideal place to get high quality gifts for art lovers, which they wrap it up nicely in beautiful handcrafted paper.

This is a place where I have hung more often with my friends, during my stay in Chennai, and for more reasons than one, it holds many special memories for me... !!My favorite section in the shop is the pottery section - In more occasions, I have seen that the prices are less when compared to the prices quoted by road side vendors ( Think of the  bargaining skills and effort)  or in exhibitions...
