Indian Goddess Curtains

I have SO many beautiful Indian saris I've started sewing them into curtain panels for my Etsy shop.

I'm naming them after Indian goddesses.  If you've ever seen Indian women in their amazing saris - especially going to weddings - you'll know that they really do look like goddesses!

Here's what I've completed so far...







Aren't they amazing fabrics?

Off to sew...

World Market

Do you have a Cost Plus World Market near you?  We have one about 10 minutes away here in Houston - yay! - although you could always shop on-line...

Loving the "Desert Caravan" collection...






Beautiful and exotic without going all the way to India!

Off to shop...

Refresh With White

Coming back from vacation is always a good time to re-evaluate.  Priorities, life-style choices, surroundings...

We have SO much color in our house that I find that I'm craving a bit of calm...

My walls and woodwork could all use a bit of refreshing so I'm going to paint everything white.  Here's my inspiration...










Off to find the perfect white paint...

Grow Food - Not Lawns

I would love to not have a lawn.  Combined with the idea of growing your own food - it's magical...









planning a gradual take-over...

For the Love of Old - Bottles...

I'm currently obsessed with the idea of collecting antique bottles.  I have a couple of areas in my house CRYING OUT for a beautiful brass or silver tray with an arrangement of old bottles ...









happy collecting...
