Balloons bo beep

Nothing satisfies the soul like a few balloons. Especially balloons on your birthday.

Balloons for the birthday girl and a new dress to complement the birthday festivities.

IMGP0184

The material is pure cotton, selected while traveling throughout India, and stitched locally right near my home village.  The locals have a way with fabric and stitching to a particular size. Its quite an art.

Close up this material has a great pattern. It is a pattern that symbolizes India which for me is all about color and happiness.

The play on the images from India’s history is fascinating. Women in fancy outfits and an entourage of camels near the bottom of the dress as part of the hem.

So comes to end another beautiful year of life. The dress is a reminder of all that beauty in India that remains with me till I return for more.
