Roses, Petals and Elephants on a Holiday

Flowers make me so happy. And I always put petals in cards and presents when I am giving somebody a gift. Seem ridiculous? Yes, but I live for that kind of small detail.

I am drying petals to make cards for Christmas.

The pink rose matched my coca cola bottle vase so perfectly- I just had to!

And I cannot forget Ganesh who needed a bit of cheering up on this cold, dark Winters day in Paris.

How did you spend your day?

Dreaming of India

Back to India in a month and a half.

Patchwork heaven, tea time (all the time), rose petals sealed with love, generous amounts of masala,  bindis, vibrant colours, smiles, curiosity. hazy and sticky sunrises, wandering through the busy streets, getting lost and spending for presents to bring back home.

These books look so wonderful.

“India was the mother of our race and Sanskrit the mother of Europe’s languages. She was the mother of our philosophy, mother through the Arabs, of much of our mathematics, mother through Buddha, of the ideals embodied in Christianity, mother through village communities of self-government and democracy. Mother India is in many ways the mother of us all.” – Will Durant

Day 6: My Adventures in Istanbul

Day 6 was a lazy day of wandering and observing. Below you can see the Turkish evil eye set in concrete. It is designed to protect you. Like Ganesha in India I am guessing.

What I would do for a plate of this right now…

In Istanbul there are cats everywhere. They keep the rat problem under wraps, and give the city a friendly atmosphere.

The power of Ganesha

I’m quite a Ganesha fan. Actually, I am a huge fan. He is just so classy. As I wrote in this post, Ganesha is the remover of obstacles.

I got this hand made Ganesha keyring in Pondicherry. I can now carry him around with me everywhere.

The Ganesha statue comes from India too, J bought it for me and we lugged it home because I knew he needed a home with us in Paris.
