7th day.

Today i am very very busy.
Dont have time todo anything.
Lots of friends to visit with for thambulam.
Just placed the flowers in a thattu and kept it very easily.
O.K. Todays thattu is flower thattu.


Today i got some extra time. So I want to do a little craft. Suddently strike an idea and prepared one pair of bird.
But it was a little small to fix the thattu. So i put one little kolam underneath and coloured it.
I had given a little satin rose in between the birds beak.
O.K. Todays thattu is ready.
