Golu looks soo beautiful Sangeetha. rhomba nalla iruku. Reminds me of home. I used to be incharge of the park with a zoo adjacent to it and a temple setting in my house. I liked the sari you used as the backdrop, looks like lion cloth, giving it a forest look with the lighting :-) I really appreciate your patience...Great job :-)

Very nice pictures. Specially the rangoli. You seem to be very artistic. I have two kids with younger one being 11 months old,I know the time and the patience that is required for this kind of job.

Great work!

Lavanya said...

Hi Sangeetha, just saw the pictures of your golu (I know...it's time for the next golu :) )They are awesome...You are so creative. I've been keeping golu at home after marriage (for 3 years now), but never thought of making a park...such a wonderful idea. Where did you buy the toys for the park? Can you please let me know?

saakshi said...

Hi Lavanya,
Sorry for the delay in replying. I was figuring out a way i could mail you but there seems to be no address. Anyway, thanks for the wonderful comments. I bring back some toys and dolls every time I visit India. Some of them are from the dollar stores here. Hope you find some and have a great navrathri.

Lavanya said...

Hi there...Thanks for your reply. I tried a few dollar stores here, but couldn't get much of what I wanted. Will try to bring some stuff from India in my next trip. Have to manage with what I have for the time being, I guess!!! Anywayz, have a wonderful navrathri. Am sure you are making wonderful plans and will come up with creative ideas this year too. Waiting to see your post-navrathri pictures!!!
