I have had a grand time celebrating my birthday this month. Since I am now a lady of a certain age....I always buy my own gifts. It lets my wonderful husband off the hook and lets me get exactly what my heart desires.
This year.....it is the beautiful Suzanni in the
pictures both above and below.
I chose this one because of the magnificent colors. It was made in 1988 and I purchased it from a vendor in Morocco. It is actually a wall hanging...but I will use it for everything from a chair cover to a table cloth. I actually remove it each morning when we have our coffee while reading the paper.
I love colorful textiles...in fact I have numerous Kanthas I have collected over the years. You can see an example of these on the orange cover on the chair and the gold Kantha on the desk in front of the window. They are so versatile and you can change the feeling in a room in an instant.
We also are planning to take a little trip down Tucson way to a sweet little spot called Tubac.
It's an artsy-fartsy community that I have been wanting to see for years and we are finally going to make the short trip.
O.K. so that pretty much covers my birthday roundup. Have a great weekend.
