Wisdom,light and love !

 Deepavali and the days leading to them were frenzy at home,cleaning,shining and polishing.There wasn't anything in particular i wanted to buy except the flowers.

Marigolds as usual took the centre stage.It was  sheer beauty and happiness to see the golden orange marigolds shining in all corners on the day of Deepavali.
Kantha bedspreads became table spreads and dull oranges went well with the carnations.Dull golds made another excellent combination on the table and the napkins were small rectangular cloths with golden border.The cheer of the Yellows of the gerberas and the fragrance from the incense holder on the day of dhanteras is still in spirits..Hope all of you enjoyed this year and as the saying goes,the wait for the next year starts!
