I don't comment often, but I have loved your blog for years.
Wishing you a Happy New Year Isabel!!! Did you make the rangoli?

Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment. No, this is not my work of art... this is a picture I took in Pondicherry of a Kolam or Rangoli. Rice powder is used to draw the designs.

You can see more examples here:

Every morning there's a woman who walks through my neighbourhood balancing a bag on her head and yelling 'Rangoli'! She sells the powder used to make these designs.
