Cheshire Heart and Goa Mug

Don't trust the pictures below, they were taken last weekend, and the weather is finally turning towards to what is supposed be autumn here. Today morning was gloomy, windy and in anticipation of some nice rain. Just like me. No, I am not gloomy but opposite, and I have some nice plans for today evening, as I've got a chance (yey!) to spend it with myself, what happens quite rarely. Though I'd prefer to spend it with my D too, it cannot happen due to an important (of course) monthly meeting they hold at his work place. So here I will be crocheting, cooking a little, watching something or reading.
Last Sunday I made a Cheshire heart for a friend of mine I got to know through the internet over 3 years ago when searching for information about India and relationships issues with Indians... :) hehe, I know, so I found a blog which gave me a clear picture, without hiding anything and at the same time telling interesting things about this country.Can you imagine I finally met its author here in our city! She came to India again to travel with her little son, and I couldn't invent a better present for her rather than the hand made heart, considering that she needed something light in weight to carry along all her journeys. Made with love to spread love and joy. The girl also did a photo shoot for me and my D :) The second one we get as a gift from our friend!
I couldn't find proper light for long time, and particularly like this photo of the heart among my garden's savage greenery.
If  you have never heard of Goa, it is a smallest state of India famous for its beaches and New Year Carnival, and is a former Portuguese province. It is one of my dream destinations too, as I have never been there in more than 3 years of life in India! So this cup could be a projection of my dream, as visualized it is more likely to come true, isn't it? We bought it at a local fair last Saturday. With the thoughts of the beaches and ocean, I continue my day and wishing you to have a nice one wherever you are, my dears! Peace \/ ! Have a wonderful weekend as well!


  1. I think a bit of alone time is a precious gift, I hope you enjoyed your day and I love the little heart, a very special gift for a special friend.

  2. Hi Anna

    Lemme know when you actually plan your trip to Goa. I'll tell you what all you must NOT miss out on while in GOA. I visit GOA every year. Its on our way to our hometown and we spend two days in GOA. Mostly at the temple since that is generally our purpose of visit to GOA. Telling you, its an amazing place. I lived in GOA for 2 years so it makes me nostalgic too :)

    Lovely heart. Handmade gifts are always treasured.

    Have a lovely week end

  3. Hi Anna, I couldn't get onto your blog yesterday (google wouldn't let me) so I'm so glad I was able to today. Your little heart is lovely, I wish I had the time to make some of these, I will one day as they do make delightful gifts. I love your mug too! have a great weekend! :)

  4. I'm glad your blog is open again! I love the heart. I actually heard of Goa because of a Psychedelic Furs song...the line is 'needles on the beach at Goa'. I had to look it up to see what that meant! It looks like a lovely spot and I hope you get to visit it someday.

  5. Hi ;o) I have had computer problems, I am finally back ;o) I love the heart! What a beautiful and precious gift, that will be treasured! Love the mug too ;o) You will get to Goa ;o) I know you will ;o)
    All the best, take care ;o)

  6. Love the Cheshire heart. And, I too sometimes like "alone" time. Maybe that is why I get up very early every morning while my husband is still asleep. Glad you are doing well. Linda@Wetcreek Blog
