Shining a little spring light on our beautiful pieces from India as we start to plan our next buying trip to this great sub-continent. The feature of our Spring window is this original teak swing seat – perfect for wiling away afternoons. Fresh flowers are sitting pretty in a collection of hand coloured pots made in Italy that we sourced in 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 & beauty 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 , it’s so compact and great colour rendition, I am looking forward to capturing the life and colour on the road in India.
Up, up and away.If you are lucky, the colours can be awe inspiring up in the sky…have a great week!
