Friendly Friday Photo Challenge-Twins

Happy Happy Birthday to Snow‘s boys!! And though I had nothing along these lines, I could not not join in this week’s prompt…it’s a celebration!

   There are no twins in my family and I have somehow always regretted that…not sure why. But I have known some as friends, acquaintances, friend’s kids and as strangers – on my way to school by the good old tram many moons ago, every day twin sisters, who were much older than I was at that time, would board the same tram as me from a particular stop and get down at the same one as me….I used to be fascinated by them, they were identical and it was impossible to tell them apart! It is interesting how memories of  things long forgotten are triggered and I just could not stop smiling today thinking about those tram rides to school and the faces that I had no idea I remembered, flashed across my mind as if I had seen them just the other day.

   I was trying to think how I could participate and my eyes suddenly fell on two identical coffee mugs on the kitchen counter and then I glanced at a couple of elephants on top of the cabinet and I figured I was going to post photos of stuff at my home that I had two of! I am hoping Snow won’t mind:)

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge-Design

   I have been missing out on my  posts for the past two weeks as I feel a bit ‘all over the place’ at the moment but I knew I had to post for  the Friendly Friday prompt by Snow and Amanda.

   Here’s my interpretation for ‘Design’…some from Nature, some from my collection of sarees (I could not not post some of the handwoven designs on the sarees…I have always been fascinated by their intricacies and beauty) and some from everyday objects around the house. And the last one was a special birthday gift by my then two and a half year old that hangs above my study desk along with his other ‘art work’ 🙂 A few of the photos are in other posts too!
