Remember the shelf that I mentioned in myย anniversary postย ?Here’s the quick story whether you want to know or not, but I can’t skip this part. ๐Ÿ˜› This shelf might not seemย that great but it is special to me and you will know why in a bit. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was hunting for a good industrial book case since few months. Either they were not really great or ย din’t fit into my budget and I just couldn’t narrow down to one. Scouting million stores(virtually) later, I found this shelf and even the price was reasonable, so I added it to the cart only to realize it’s out of stock. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Dang! I was so annoyed and pissed that I stopped looking for bookshelves for good. I felt a little bad initially and lost interest eventually. But apparently Hari kept looking at their website every day first thing in the morning and one fine day he noticed that there was one last piece that was in stock!! He ordered it immediately and and wanted to surprise me with it but I was so burned out that day that he had to tell me about the bookcase to cheer me up. The conversation went like this.. H- Heyy! I ordered the bookcase that you liked. ๐Ÿ™‚ Me- What?! How?! When?! H- I saw that it was ‘in stock’ today morning and bought it pronto. ๐Ÿ™‚ Me- Oh no! H- huh? so much for…. Me- Wait.. Remember I told you that I have few gift cards and wanted to use them for it. But it’s okay. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love you!! H- I do remember about the gift cards and I did use them to buy it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Me- *speechless* H- there? Me- brb drowning in my own happy tears. Hehe. I’m a sucker for #littlethingsinlife and that’s how simple it is to cheer me up. ๐Ÿ˜› here are few pictures of the said shelf, let’s call them ‘shelfie’. ๐Ÿ˜€ More like a plant stand than a ‘bookshelf’ but that’s just me for you! ๐Ÿ˜€ Have a great week ahead! <3

  1. Awww that’s a beautiful li’l selfie you have there! I’ve always admired the little snippets of your home that I come across on social media ๐Ÿ™‚ I love shelfie’s backstory too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Great photos as always, Aishwarya!

  2. That Shelfie is so pwetty! I love how you deck up your place! #thelittlethings are as always the best! And my stomach is still growling over your homemade buns and fondue! Sigh! ๐Ÿ˜€ <3

    1. Thank you so much, Lakshmi! <3 And, that fondue thingy was so good actually if I may say so myself. *burrrrppp* ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. I love this shelfie so very much! This is my fav place at your home. I love the way you have decorated this stand and your house in total. If at all we buy a house in US, you are doing the interior design for it.

  4. Hello Aishwarya,
    What a wonderful steal! Also, I dig your post about Indian sweets. I’m an inveterate smoker and I have a pile of orange candies always by my side (chuckle).

    Would you be amenable to reading and reviewing a collection of short stories? Author Sharat Kumar has a collection of short stories coming out this time in January. In each of the 13 stories, uncovers the New Age woman and the chemistry between men and women in contemporary India. Whether spinning a yarn about an Army romance, or the affection between two divorcees; Kumar holds a mirror to how sparks fly.
    If you’re interested, I’d love to provide a PDF of the upcoming book to be reviewed in your particular fun, free and fearless way. Just ping me back at the email address hritvick.dv(@)gmail dot com.

    Cheers, and keep blogging.
