Hello Everyone. How did you celebrate Dussehra? Like I told you yesterday ours was going to be a quiet dinner at home with family. And we did exactly that. I made a lot of Manglorean food and we finished our dinner with hot jalebis (We eat jalebis every year on Dussehra, Want to know why? Its a sweet story)
I love these middle of the week festivals/holidays.It feels good to take a break and bake, read, have dear ones over and do up your home. Fresh flowers normally do the trick for me. How about you? Usually I like to be surrounded by several bunches but sometimes I like to have only green leaves around me. And sometimes I like the idea of taking out all the vases, bottles, jars I possess and put one flower in each. Then I group them all on a sideboard and let me tell it looks pretty as a picture.
Bud vases anyone?
Yes, the giveaway for today comes from my home to yours. Or lets just say from my heart to yours. This is my little way of saying thank you to each one of you for making purplehomes a part of your life, for dropping by,for leaving me lovely comments, for emailing me and giving me all the love that you always do.
You guys always make my day and I am always looking forward to "meeting" you here.
Big thank you and a big bear hug.
I made this ceramic bud vase sometime back and I would like one of you to have it. What do you have to do to get it? Nothing. Really!
Because today it is not a contest, its thank you time :)
Just leave me comment with your email id so that I can use random.org to pick one name. Well, so technically speaking you still have to do something to get this :) I really wish I could gift each one of you but looks like I only have one of this with me at present and picking one using email id is only way to do this...right? And like all the other giveaways this week, its open till the 17th of October'11 and I will announce the winner on the 18th of October'11 so that you get your gift just in time for Diwali:)
Oh! also I will be able to ship this only to my Indian readers. But I have something special planned for my International readers as well..so please don't be disappointed..I will be thanking you in a really special way very very soon:)
