Beautiful Golu decoration, Arthy. Nice display of dolls and most of them are hand made by you. Beautiful kuthu vilakku alangaram with those hand made jewels.
All the best and keep it up.

Nice golu.
First i appreciate that even from Outside india you are continueing the Golu.
The villakku devi is fine. At the golu, the marapachiis are standing as it is. You should have decorated and even join the contest.

Beautifully decorated Golu, Arthy. You already know how much we enjoyed your village lady scene, with village kitchen set. It must have been difficult for you to set up and maintain with a real Krishna around. Smile

Thank you for participating in our Navratri contest.
Wish you a happy and a prosperous Diwali. Smile
