Greetings from sunny Minnesota!

It's been exactly one week since we left Bangalore, India.

Here I am typing away on my laptop in a hotel room trying hard to communicate the memories of a delightful July afternoon in Bangalore, spent in the company of two most amazingly talented ladies.
Before leaving our beloved home in Bangalore, India, before it disintegrated into pieces to be bubble-wrapped and packed in cartons, I invited two lovely ladies whose work I have always admired to come have chai with me...

Super talented illustrator, charcoal drawing specialist & cat lover~ Priya Sebastian and multi-talented, creative self taught artist & dog lover Aarohi Singh.

So over huge mugs of chai and thick slices of plum cake we talked about how as bloggers we felt instant creative connections when we met in real world.

Aarohi, gifted me a tea kettle on which are painted two of my favorite things: Frangipani flowers & mugs of hot chai!
These will always warm my heart in a cold country far from home.

 I absolutely do!

Priya, brought with her a bunch of gorgeous bright cheerful flowers !

 I just had to get the artists to pose with their work:-) Priya with her bold charcoal self -portrait that watches over our study.

Aarohi poses with her vibrant kettle.

...and Priya decides to shoot me while I adjust the camera's timer.

I guess the timer worked well:-) 

This was a fun post to put together, an archive of happy times spent with creative friends in our Bangalore home. A special home that brought loads of happiness to us and corners of which I loved sharing with dear readers of Rang Decor!

These memories will keep me going while I wait for our 40 feet container to come sailing across oceans to our new home after 2 whole months!

To see Priya Sebastian's work do drop by at her blog the plum tree.
To see Aarohi Singh's work do drop by at her website Art by Aarohi.

Do stay tuned for some new features planned for Rang Decor!
