A Farewell to Summer!

We are enjoying the last of the summer days before Autumn comes around. What began as a dull and dismal day, turned out completely different by the end of the day! We drove down to the beach. As the sun came down, we witnessed the most magical sunset.

You can see my kids watching the sunset in the image above :)

The evening reminded me of one of my favorite quotes "Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time." -John Lubbock

 I am going to miss the endless summer days. The kids head back to school next week. Life is going to change as I know it! However, I shall look back and smile at all the wonderful summer memories! I am ready to embrace autumn now. With fall around, expect to see a few changes to the MDC Casa :)

Weekend Inspiration!

Sigh! This looks like the perfect corner to snuggle up with a good book and some chai :) My weekend looks nothing like this. I am having a super busy time these days and this looks pretty idyllic.

Hope your weekend is everything you want it to be! See you around!

A Home in Sydney

This home on Design Files recently caught my eye. The first image has quite a few of my favorite things......the map on the wall, the tribal pillows, the books and the guitar peeking through :) I like it also because the house looks well loved and lived in! Its nice to see spaces filled with things the owners love. It gives you an insight into the lives of the people living there, don't you think?

 To view pictures of the entire house, click here.

The Versatile Vintage Lassi Glass

One of my favorites at my little store are these vintage lassi glasses. They are the perfect addition to the global home. I use quite a few home of them at my home to store various things......especially flowers :) These glasses were used to serve Lassi in the old days. Lassi is a traditional yogurt based drink. These antique glasses are from India. They are made of metal and brass and each of them have their own distinct engraved designs.
Grab them from here before they are all gone :)
