How is your week coming along? I’m still having a hangover from my weekend shenanigans 😛 Today, I’m going to talk about something that has a dear place in mumma’s heart! Home Decor 🙂 She loves decorating the house and when she is in a home decor store, she is like a kid in a toy store 😀 She goes crazy shopping for home decor products like porcelain cutlery, glass decoratives, curtains etc. So when I initially told her that I am going to bring in home decor as a category on the blog, she was ecstatic! 😀
So today’s blog is a little hat-ke(different) from the rest 😉 These days, I shop for almost every requirement I have online and when the idea of shopping online for home decor came in – I was kind of inquisitive.
First thing that popped up in my mind is – how would the products be?
Second, would they reach home in good condition? But well, sometimes you got to take a risk 😀
So when I shopped recently from Homesake to decorate my house with some pretty things, I had to share it with you all ♥ I thought it would give you an idea about how my experience was and if one can shop from Homesake 🙂
First things first? A little about Homesake before I show you all my haul 😀

Homesake goes by this ideology:

It is a place where you live those happy and not so happy moments with your loved ones and that’s what makes “a” house “your” home.

So I ordered for a few handcrafted items on Homesake and within 5 days, it was home all the way from Rajasthan 😀 Since most of my haul had glassware involved, they came securely wrapped in a huge box filled with thousands of paper strips that served as a perfect cushion for my products and all the products were completely secure. So here’s what I got to decorate my house –
1) Luster Ribbed Flower Case
Product Description: This Glass flower pot, with its luster finish and translucent paint, is sure to catch everyone’s attention. Put colorful fresh flowers or rustic dry flowers inside, this flower vase is sure to stand out in your room
How pretty is the color? The ribbed mouth of the vase is unique and only makes me wonder how man can be so creative 🙂
2) Midnight Sky Spiral Bead Coasters
Product Description: Simplicity carried to an extreme becomes elegance. Set the bar of your parties higher with this stunning coaster that gives guests a pretty spot to put their drinks on. Black Glass-Bead strands spiraled around to give a textured look and tough structure. Now Serve with Style.
I have come across different coasters made of wood but an entire coaster made with only beads is rather innovative. Also, it shows the amount of hard work and time gone into making these hand-made coasters! Love them ♥
3) Half Crackle Shimmering Light Box
Product Description: Decorate like never before…!!
Bring a modish vintage era to your home.
This crackle T-Light stand with classic vintage look and flawless modern finish, is a tasteful elegant piece to adorn your home.
This Glass T-Light stand with crackle finish on it top and clear glass finish at bottom, is sure to add spark and charm to your home decor. Just Light a T-Light inside and relish the Glow.
At first, I took sometime to understand how it works 😛 Twirled it upside down several times and finally understood how the light box is kept. The crackle just adds on to the beauty of the candle light.
4) Cerulean Blue Beads with Regal Flower Antique Pendant Necklet
Product Description: Shine like a midnight star in this pretty cerulean blue necklace. This necklace is made of Blue Glass beads carefully sewn with Antique Golden-metallic spacer beads, and a beautiful Royal flower pendant to complete the look.
There is absolutely nothing I dislike about this neck piece. It’s in a shade that one could kill for 😛 The huge cerulean(blue) beads with golden-metallic beads make such a style statement if worn with a long skirt and a simple non-fussy tank top. The detailing on the pendant is quite different and unique.
5) Glossy Votive Set
Product Description: Rejuvenate your home with panache. This contemporary beauty will take you down to a shimmering lane while sun plays peek-a-boo with you. Made from high quality glass material and hand coated with Glossy paint to give it smooth and clear look. Just light a wax diya inside and let it work its magic.
I might not celebrate Diwali with diyas at home but that didn’t stop me from picking this one. I can see myself using this Glossy Votice Set for Christmas 😀 There are so many ways in which one could use this set. They come in different colours and they look beautiful when they are candle lit. Don’t believe? Look below 😛
All the products came in good condition and none were broken. For the price tag involved, the products are worth giving a try.
So this is what I shopped from Homesake 🙂 It was my first time so stuck to some essentials. They also have antique glass craft,royal craft-metal, drizzling crystal ware, table and wall mounting,votive and T lights, candle stands and photo frames. I’m going to try royal craft-metal next 😉
