Making a home in a foreign land has never easy on the heart. There have been days when i struggle to understand where I truly belong. With my heart still left behind in India, the memories of which never left my side and just like most of you, I have also tried to make a home here for myself with things that I miss the most from my childhood - some dreams and aspirations.
I have always lived a city life, first with my parents and then with my husband, which always meant never having enough space to nurture a garden, whatsoever. Just a few plants out in the balcony and that was it. I also remember watering those plants every evening with my parents, the smell of earth felt therapeutic every time. I didn't grow up as an earth child but i became one as i grew older and felt the need to connect more with nature and its beautiful creations. It soothed my heart, specially on days I was hurting. And no matter where i lived, the earth just kept calling me out to me. That's when i began to bring outdoors inside with little things of nature that made me happy.
My plant family have grown extensively over the the last couple of years and i truly enjoy being a homebody most days surrounded by it. But being someone who appreciates a slow life, my heart still yearns for a beautiful little garden in the backyard of a nice cozy home.
This curation thus, an ode to the dreams of my inner earth child, who grew up wishing for a magical little garden in the backyard where — delicate wildflowers and memories bloomed all year around and a translation of that dream into beautiful prints and hand-embroidered details that speak the same love language
Handpicked and curated with that thought and love, this curation of hand-embroidered cushions, imbued with the mystique and tranquility of a secret garden is an invitation from me to you - to explore the wilderness from the comfort of your home and to uncover the beauty of your own secret garden, the way you like!
