Namaste friends, greetings from India!

rose offerings,these smelt amazing..
Rose offerings – these actually smelt like roses…

I foolishly thought that in the time between coming back from France and going to India we would launch our e-commerce site ! Alas it was not to be.  It’s true a lot of the work has been done and we are very, very close but between one thing and another it just didn’t happen…(i know everyone who has done a new website in recent times would relate to this 🙂

Architectural elements for those of you wanting to build around something beautiful!

I truly wish i had a little more patience about such things but luckily my partner in life & in business does – he sees the world differently. For both of us travel is a great love, and a fabulous distraction from the frustrations and the often relentless pressures of being in business so the timing for this trip to India was pretty perfect.

It takes time to pull all the elements of a buying trip together, whether it is France or India the schedule can be hectic – but some things are worth making time for. Where possible we try and go off the beaten path and visit somewhere we haven’t been…this time we found ourselves in some pretty honest markets in Gujarat!

And of course we always want to visit the girls at the Sambhali Trust that we sponsor, and it was a real thrill to see them looking so well & happy since first meeting them in 2012…a credit to the founders, workers & volunteers of this grass roots NGO.

If you have just discovered Elements i love… its good to know that simply by purchasing Indian furniture and other elements from these shipments you are contributing to the Sambhali Trust too 🙂
