I just couldn't resist this beautiful and oh-so-clever Japanese bowl set that I got in NY. The top is wooden and the bottom bowl is ceramic. I am assuming it is intended for rice and miso soup from the drawing on the packaging - there's no English translation anywhere. I thought it would be perfect for my picky daughter who will refuse to eat most vegetables, but loves rice and dal, the 'child food' of most Indian households. She smiles that she has gotten away eating 'only rice and dal' having no idea that it's got tomatoes, zucchini, pumpkin, and a whole bunch of garlic in it. And I have to smile too.

bindis in her pocket which can be switched out to match her outfit. The fabrics I used are scraps from material I bought from my favourite Indian store called Anokhi which makes in my opinion one of the most beautiful block printed fabrics in the world. 'Anokhi' means 'unique' so that is the name of my doll too.

Folk art and vintage frames. These lovely Gond original paintings were given to us by our visiting cousins from India, I love them so much! The Ikea frames I tried first didn't quite work, then I found these beauties at the thrift. So happy! Gond art is whimsical, detailed and colourful, traditionally painted on the walls and houses of the tribes of Madhya Pradesh in India. More on Gond art here and here.
