My parents brought this pretty piece home all the way from India.
This was my late grandmothers. My mother is going to kill me because I can't remember what she called it in Punjabi. Its a family heirloom that I love looking at.
Surprisingly my parents were never afraid of bold patterns and colours (in rugs that is). These Persian beauties were bought over 15 years ago and I find them very current today.
Another souvenir from a trip to India. I'm hedging my bets that most Indian parents have one of these trinkets around their homes somewhere.
A little jewel box treat. Can you ever really have too many of these?
Oh, my mom never misses out decorating for the kids. She doesn't take it too seriously...an important lesson I think. Nothing like a dinasour in a house plant. Adds that special touch don't you think? All images via me.
