Versatile Blogger Award!!

Yay!! Patty from Colours Dekor passed on "The Versatile Blogger" Award to me. I am so happy :) Thank you so much Patty!
Rules of this award are -
  1. Thank the person who awarded you & link back to them in your post.
  2. Tell 7 random facts about yourself.
  3. Pass the award on to 15 new found bloggers.
  4. Contact each blogger you want to pass this award on to and let them know you’ve done so.

Here are 7 random facts about me -
  1. I love peanuts and anything with them - peanut chutney being my favourite.
  2. I love soda when the fizz has gone out! (I know what's the point of soda then, but that's the way I like it)
  3. Cadbury's Roast Almond chocolate... is my all time favourite . It works as the perfect bribe if someone wants something from me. 
  4. I don't like lizards... have a nagging fear that one will drop on me. 
  5. I make lists - in my head, on paper. But not just that I make rough drafts of lists and then fair ones (I know, my friends laugh at me for that, you can do that too!)
  6. I cannot do just one thing at a time - the TV has to be on, the laptop open and a book too! Or the phone will do.
  7. I bite my nails when I am tense or excited (like in the cricket world cup finals).
Now comes the tough part, passing the award on to 15 new bloggers. I am a new blogger myself and am still getting to know other fellow bloggers. So I think I shall skip the passing part this time. I don't intend to be selfish or greedy by keeping the award all to myself. Just that it won't be fair if I pass the award on without knowing other bloggers. 

Happy Wednesday!! Its mid week already!! Yay!!

A story of a table, 2 chairs and a re-org!

This weekend was action packed and fun-filled.
S and I had been thinking of getting a table and chair for N's room. He's growing up and needs a place to sit and do his stuff. You might ask "What stuff?" Ahem!! Things like playing with Lego blocks, action figures, draw doodles and the likes!
I did not want one of those heavier-than-you metal-coated-with-vinyl desk sets with an attached chair. They don't leave any room for changing the seating style. I am also not a very big fan of cartoon characters drawn over everything. I was looking for something plain and simple, something which blends with the room and is child friendly.
There are these tables and chairs in N's playschool that I love - simple, practical and child safe. I took the address from N's teacher and off we went table hunting. And we found this - 

In order to make room for the new furniture I ended up re-organizing N's room. This is how it looks. The desk and chairs blend into his room perfectly.

N loves it and started using it as soon as we were done with the place.


Another thing that I love in N's room is this bed sheet and cushion from Peek-A-Boo Patterns by Garima Agarwal.
Check her stuff out. Its awesome, unique and so so lovable!

N loves this auto bed sheet and cushion.

Hope all of you had a lovely weekend!!

Tea time!

Rajee Sood over at Styling & Design with Rajee Sood is having an online tea party! 
Considering she is one of my favourite design bloggers I had to participate.

Lets peep into the bright and cozy nook in my balcony. How about sitting here to have a nice cup of tea?

Reminds me of a nice, pleasant and a li'l lazy spring day!

Some of my favourite springy sweet pea hand lotion and Good Earth whole wheat methi crackers.  The cushions also remind me of spring. Cushions courtesy The Red River.

And a light and funny book to go along a cup of tea. What more could I ask for?

I am also sending this favourite recipe of mine for banana walnut muffins to go along with a cup of tea.
Its mid-week already. Yay!

Update - I just realized that another of my favourite blogs The Key Bunch is having a Spring Summer Fest Carnival. So I am going to link this up there too! :)
