Chai-khullad mornings

Good morning with leaves in a chai khullad!

Benefits of tea drinking in a clay cup
The joy of drinking tea in a mud cup ... tasting raw earth while you sip, makes for moments to savour, truly. And even better, instead of tossing them off, you can reuse them as plant holders at home and office. My whole-hearted vote for earthenware!

Oh, and are you on Instagram? The fun of micro photoblogging... loving it! If you are there let us connect! Find me @asunnyellowindow where I share photos of artwork and DIYs, travel experiences, special corners of homes and gardens.
Fun weekend to you!

Frida Kahlo - a face that launched a thousand products

"Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?"
Strong, eccentric, unusual. She needs no introduction.

There seems to be no painter as inspiring for product design as the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo.
It is AMAZING how her persona has endured several decades and that she is still a huge inspiration to artists world over.

She would smile in her grave (or would she) if she knew that she gets painted on canvases, and painted all over again in various moods, or becomes cover girl on pillows, clothes, toys, cards, mugs, fashion accessories, kitchen towels, bags, ..., ..., !!

Who wouldn't want a legacy as fun and colorful as this?
Do you own, have you done, or have you come across any Frida-inspired work? All ears.
Meanwhile here's something you could check out, the first is a treasure chest of Kahlo's work, and the other is a fictional biography with Kahlo's authentic, sensuous recipes which I am definitely stalking!
