    I'm getting prepared to do pooja this friday and stumbled upon your blog while looking for ideas to decorate amma.

    Did you stick that saree and how did you made Vaddanam? Please reply if you see this message.

    and also please visit my blog :

  10. thank you is a regular sized blouse piece which i pleated and then ironed...I did not stick it. vaddanam is a simple chain with a pendant tied at theback...everything is a DIY of some sort..nothing store bought.

  11. Thanks for your reply Sudha, You decorated amma very beautifully.I dont have pattu blouse with me but I will try to decorate her with whatever I have.

    But this helped me get some ideas :) and also thanks for commenting on my blog.
