Here is a recent one that I did over the weekend.
Lets get some colour in -
I picked these beautiful coasters at an exhibition recently.
These are hand-painted Kalamkari fabrics made into coasters by laminating on top. They are made by artisans of the DRRT - Dwaraknath Reddy Ramanarpanam Trust based in and around the villages of Srikalahasthi, AP, India. They use eco-friendly natural vegetable dyes extracted from bark, flower and root of various plants and trees. Burnt tamarind twigs are used for sketching. Sharpened mango or bamboo twigs are used as pens or "kalams" for writing the fine outlines. They have a beautiful assortment of products ranging from apparel, bags, home decor to gifts and greeting cards.

And did you notice these cute little wine glass charms in this picture below?
These were made a very talented friend back in Minneapolis, USA. She makes them by hand and for each one she put in a cute li'l charm. Here is a closer look. This one is a purse that says "Paris" - THE place for bags.
This one is a mascara bottle. How cute is that??
The beautiful peach-pink roses are from friends. The green cushions - a gift from my sister. The crystal wine glasses - a gift from my parents. I have mentioned them here.
