MOST RECENT

I've heard stories from my mom and uncles and aunts about their childhood in our hometown (#Kasargod - essentially #Kerala but more #Karnataka culture) An entire village of families... cousins, uncles, aunts, second - third - fourth cousins and their families all living next door to each other, and in houses with interconnected gardens/ front yards.

It truly was a village that was raising you. family support was immense and income, cooking and festivals were shared with each family.

I got to experience it first hand this week during my stay with an extended family in a small town in Kerala. 3 sisters, 1 brother and more cousins and uncles and aunts and grandmothers. A huge bunch of people who embraced us Mumbaikars as their own and gave us a place in their hearts and homes.

For me it wasn't very alien because the place looked just like Mangalore or Kasargod where I've spent some of summer vacations in childhood. But it was, as an adult, understanding how families raised each other, gave love and support and passed on culture, values and tradition.

I've learned a lot in these few days and I am happy that I didn't think much but booked tickets, packed bags, didn't look at my phone and took it all in.

I miss the new friends and family I made there deeply. someday we shall meet again... What also touched the people I met there was my eagerness to dress in the traditional #kasavu saree. about 3 ladies spent time and effort to get me ready. it took over a dozen safety pins to make sure the saree was perfect in every place. but these ladies from the wedding house, got me ready first and sent me off to the wedding hall and then took the time to groom themselves and come there. Such selflessness and love I rarely see today.

More saree pics coming up soon... #malayali #kasavukada #traditionalindianfoods #traditionalindianwear #keralasaree #lifeinavillage #backtomyroots #thalassery #kannur #godsowncountry #keralaholiday #hospitality #sareenotsorry #whiteandgold

There’s a town not far from Aspen named Marble. I’ll give you one guess why it’s called that. When you’re driving down to Carbondale you snake along the Crystal river, and you can see huge blocks of Marble that fell from the trains that transported it along the river. It’s the stone that built the Taj Mahal, the White House, the Parthenon and the Coliseum. It was only a matter of time before we fell under its luxurious spell. .

I don’t think you realize how badly I want to keep this entire collection to myself. But I’m nice. I’ll share with you. ⠀
The Bavaria Collection - a 10 person place setting of dinner, lunch and dessert plates, tea cups and saucers, soup bowls, fruit bowls, some other kind of bowl, platters (like a ton of different sizes), 1 round and 1 oval tureen, a gravy boat, and a water pitcher. ⠀
This collection is insane. ⠀

Off to a busy start this morning with so many things on my to-do list 😅Thankfully, I found the time to get some of these done. And now, coffee ☕️ #loveandlines #guestbook #acrylicguestbook #gold #whiteandgold #weddingsigns #weddingsignage #acrylicsign #acrylicsigns #melbournemade #yarravalley #yarravalleyweddings #coffee

Hoy se fue esta torta número al cumple de una clienta especial 💕Digo especial porque la veo muy seguido, y es muy cariñosa conmigo. Me ha confiado los momentos mas especiales desde hace varios meses y siempre me hace saber cuánto le gusta el producto final de mis horas sin dormir 😂. Solo por eso accedí a romper mis esquemas y hacer una torta con crema y con fruta! 🍓 Así que no se encariñen mucho con este diseño porque fue una excepción 🙈

Professionalità differenti, obiettivo unico! Thanks to @federicaambrosini with @get_repost

Non e’ sufficiente curarare solo l’allestimento floreale.
