Incredible India

India is an Incredible country, filled with vibrant people & rich colors. In this post, I have captured some of these beautiful colors/Patterns for you to enjoy.

Cotton pillow covers in my house. My mom-in-laws choice. I love the colors & the details on it.

A lift in a residential apartment building colored in bright yellow with beautiful hand painted details.

A lady waiting with a kid on a railway platform. What attracted me is their colorful outfits.

A bench in a railway station. More vibrant colors in the background, even on the floor tiles.

Stone carvings on a south Indian temple. You can check out more Temple pictures here.

Designer dishes

If you like hosting a party or dining in style you need to get your hands on these beautiful designer dishes from ccgemz. I got a chance to visit their stall at a crafts show in Minneapolis. These dishes are decorated skillfully with glass gems and sterling silver wire. They look very elegant & stylish with a hint of color - nothing too loud.

Which one is your favourite? I love the jars & dishes from the 3rd and 4th pictur from top.
You can read about Woven & Braided jewelry and heat colored metal jewelry- the other treasures I stumbled on at the same crafts fair.
