We wanted to shine the light on some of our beautiful pieces from India as we start to plan our buying trip to this great sub-continent … The inspiration for the Spring window was the lovely teak antique swing seat, perfect for wiling away a few afternoons as the days gradually become warmer…& a small collection of terracotta pots made in Italy that we sourced on our recent buying trip to France.
We love going to India, the colours & the people are so vibrant…the days can be a little crazy & unpredictable but we always come home with some real treasures!
In contrast to our buying trips to France – where the days are also long but there is a familiarity and a sense of order that just doesn’t exist in India…
However, on all buying trips you need time, and a very good set of eyes focused on finding the gems amongst acres of junk and often poorly made pieces. For us its all part of the journey and we love the challenge of bringing home the booty!
Speaking of colours, I’m loving my new little Lumix GF3 , a compact DSLR,( its not an ad – I bought it) it has wonderful colour rendition & i’m looking forward to capturing some of the the life and colour on the road in India.
& for a taste of India visit Braja’s blog ~ Lost & Found in India.… or read her memoir!Love to travel & love to fly, the colours can be great up in the sky…have a great week!
