1,2,3






Three uses for a quirky object. Picked up a pair of iron stirrups from a flea market in Lhasa a few years back. Although I had no idea about how I will use them, their texture and shape caught my fancy.
After lying around unused for some time, the stirrups have been hung on a mango-wood hook by a bay window. Posting pictures of three different ways I use them.

To hold pots of miniature plants or creepers some times.


To hold flowers every now and then.


even tea lights some evenings.

Which use do you like the most? What else can one do with these?

I love the way you have put different carefully-selected elements against that window! Especially those woven baskets with a shell-lining around the rims (are those from India?). I like both flowers and the tea-lights on these, would have probably tried a bunch of fragrant Jasmines, with a part of it hanging down from the holders :)!

Loved the tea light use, and I love the way you have placed one on the console too. The flowers look beautiful too! OMG, Stirrups...who would have thought?:)

Hi Chandan, I've been visiting you blog for about a year an half nd I have to say, your photography just keeps getting better and better! I love it.
What a beautiful and creative way to use stirups. Who would have thought!

Who could think stirrups could be used so creatively! I love the effect they cast with tea lights. Awesome. Do you think you can use them as a centerpiece for a buffet lunch? With some wild flowers?
