I thought the bottle holder was a slice of one of those heavy portable blankets (that they do not make as heavy as they used to)
and nice variety – even the idyllic door with snow and stairs and two lights had such charm
Yes, that bottle holder is a typical colorful pattern that is used in all types of woven goods sold in Peru and many other countries with indigenous populations! I love its brightness. Thank you for your kind comments.
A wonderfully varied gallery of stripes and checks! Love it that there’s a vaccuumcleaner in the mosque… The Aswan tables are indeed beautifully crafted, and the bottle trees was the first time seen for me! Brilliant.
Haha! I hadn’t noticed the vacuum cleaner! Well, I guess they have to vacuum between prayer sessions! It’s a good thing people have to take their shoes off at the entrance to the mosque!
It sure is! In some countries people walk into their house with their shoes on – could never happen here…
I always want to have people take off their shoes when they come into my house, but my husband and I are usually too lazy to do it ourselves!
Your Mosque image is incredible, loved that! And agree, the Aswan tables are beautiful. Well done.
Excellent examples. Very well done.
Thank you, John!
