Krishna in green

this is Radha-Krishna in Their green forest outfit. They have around 35 outfits so They never wear the same one twice in a over a month. All the outfits are handmade in India with delicate embroidery, jari work, pearls, sequins etc. This makes it a very personal way for us to reciprocate with God (as I understand Him), by Dressing and decorating Him etc.

trend alert : trunks and tufts

trunk used as coffee table

tufted bed

a tufted chair in my favorite colors

it all started here with the blue tufted lounges at the Ivy in Sydney!

i have noticed a resurgence here in tufted furniture which is basically buttoned and bumpy and also the use of suitcases or trunks as interior furnishing, this has been around OS for a while but only hit our shores lately, we are a bit slow here!

pomegranate is my favorite fruit, i use it a lot in making sweets for my cafe. I make a uniquely rich and syrupy sauce by cooking down the seeds with equal amounts of water and sugar. This results in a sweet and slightly sour richly hued syrup that is amazing on cheesecakes, ice creams, pancakes etc..

incredible India.......

this one is my favorite, so detailed and the blue and green look great togather

these pieces of workmanship hail from India and are way cheaper than your simplest designer dress in the western world and look at the intricate designs in them..
