Visit to Flower Fields - A garden tour

I hope your week got started on a good note.  I had a very productive weekend.  As the weather was good, I cleaned up both front and the back yard. They were screaming for attention as I had not paid much attention as we had really weird warm weather.

Today I am taking you on a tour of the Flower Fields of Carlsbad, CA.

Athena Hues - Artist Feature and a giveaway

I am extremely happy and excited to be doing this feature on my blog and hosting the very first giveaway here at Novice Decorator.

Couple years ago I reconnected with my engineering school classmates thanks to Facebook.  Creator of Athena Hues, Malathy Kumaran is my classmate’s wife.  We both connected over Facebook as well and have been in touch for a couple of years now.   When we chatted last time, we talked about featuring her work on my blog and she agreed readily.

I am pleased to present an interview with Malathy along with a photo essay of her work.  

Exclusive handmade jewelry for today's woman...for price details, send in a message to Athena Hues...

Back in action - Spring flowers

I had disappeared for a while.   I apologize for that.   I hope you all have had a good month.  April is a month I struggle through some times as we had our son is April 2001 and he became an angel for us during the same month.  Some years are better than other but this year was a hard one but it is getting better each year.
