Artists have such interesting bathrooms...

Graham and Green


My yoga teacher told me the other day that she loves going to do the local art trail as she loves going to look around peoples houses, as artists have such interesting bathrooms. So this post is dedicated to her

Habitat vouchers for christmas please!

Personally I think habitat are really really hit and miss, but this season I could easily find plenty to spend some good old fashioned gift vouchers on.I drink a lot of tea (I'm British) and I am very particular about my mugs, I hate matching crockery so try and seek out intresting pieces. My latest find was this  lovely mug from Habitat. Good size, good shape hmmmm tea

Haman Towels. hmmmmm

Tibetan Ghau

I have just purchased a Old Tibetan Ghau  (A Ghau is a Tibetan buddhist amulet container or prayer box that carries powerful amuletic objects). When I was in China over the summer I nearly brought one from a Tibetan street seller but my friends talked me out of it (they dont seem to share my love of the obscure) and I have been kicking myself ever since. 

The one I have just brought is like the one above, . I am so pleased with my purchase, and although I wish i had got one in China, mine was actually 1/4 of the price the Tibetan Man was selling his for. Mine contains a small Avalokitesvara character in the centre. I was attracted to this one as Avalokitesvara's other name is  Padmapāni which means holder of the lotus.
