Garland........ Malai......

I remember the childhood days.
When chitri started, mullai arumbu and malli poos are available a lot at Coimbatore.
School vacation starts during those time.
It is a duty to my elder sister to prepare jadai alankaram with the mullai, malli to us girlees.
We girls will eagerly wait for those days, feel proud to wear poo jadai every year.
Immediately photos are taken at the photo studo (No camaras was available at home) by keeping a mirror backside to visible the malar alarangam, by sitting a big cardboard moon.

Nowadays malar jadai alankarams are used only for wedding girl.
That too changed into decorate with jewels and artificial flowers matching the girls dress.
Have a look of my niece at the special day her jadai alankaram.
No flowers are used. Artificial golden flower and rose flowers were used.
So times are changing.
I learnt to prepare jadai alankaram by flowers from my sister on the early age.
Now i tried it out by preparing a Garland with flowers to give to the Devi near my house.
This for Devi Lalitha in that temple.
Now the arali malai for Devi Durga.
Then comes the chamanthi malai for Devi muthumariamman.

Not with flowers, i prepared garland with Valayal(glass bangles)also.
This is here.

Friends, you may like to see how will be the Devis wearing and looks gracefully by the stoned haram, flower garland and bangle garland. So here......
Devi Lalithamba.
Devi astabuja kanaka Durga.
Devi Muthumariamman.
I prey let peace and happy be blessed by these Devis to all .

Heart shaped creation.

While browsing Internet, while reading magazine, while watching T.V...........
Everywhere invariably red hearts, red hearts and red hearts......................
Oh For Valentin's day.
Why should i too not?

I too had done one table decoration.
See what I had done.

I had taken heart shaped plastic canvas, wool, Crystal to decorate(I am addict to crystals you know)
started doing.
I had done just cross stitch with the plastic canvas and finished the heart shape

Centre with dark rose colour(instead of red. This is magenda) and borders in green colour.
Now comes the Crystal part.
I just pasted it in the centre of heart.

Prepared 8 numbers like this.
Now comes centre portion

For this I need one hexagonal sakshi board, magenta and yellow colour paints, magenta colour lace and heart shaped crystals.
First given black colour base to the sakshi board.

Then painted ochre yellow.
Centre Magenta round, matching to the plastic canvas and border with megenda lace.
I made one round shaped plastic canvas with magenta in the centre and green to the border matching with heart shaped designs.
Of course a green Crystal in the centre.

Pasted the round shaped plastic canvas at the sakshi board and pasted the heart shaped crystals as outer round shape.

Now all the preparations over.
Assembling the heart shaped Table decoration.
 Like this

This can be placed in a plate and keep like this.

Else can be placed like this on the floor.
Even it can be placed simply like this.
