Calling all mommies....

.....Hope you have a wonderful day! Hope you get some time to put your feet up....

(And read a good book...I loved reading this one! green toenails optional..... :D)



...enjoy something pretty...

Orchid.

(The orchids have faded now, but I'm so happy I still have these pictures to enjoy their beauty.......)


......and get pampered.........

 
Tempting? Get the recipe here. I used to make this quite often, but I didn't know what I was missing out on till the magician-cook whispered her secret ingredient in my ear---Ginger!! I've jazzed it up with some scallions and fresh herbs--basil from my windowsill and cilantro from the grocer!

Those lovely batik napkins are my mother's work....aren't they gorgeous!


My new tablecloth, that-isn't-a-tablecloth. It's actually a curtain...I couldn't find any table covers in India that would fit my unwieldy dining table, so I picked the prettiest curtain for the purpose! Bonus: it was on sale! Yay.


Confession: these pictures were taken much earlier, nothing to do with the momentous occasion (!!??!!) of mothers' day. I just thought they'd look pretty presented here in one post. 

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend, my lovelies!
