Do you remember that song by Dionne Warwick? I used to love it. I still like it actually. It was the first thing that popped into my head when I thought about taking a picture of my new Blessing Garland from Nepal.
I bought it yesterday while doing a little shopping at Ten Thousand Villages. I love this store! The garland is modeled after prayer flags from Tibet which "offer a way to send silent blessings on the wings of the wind." I love the way the store is arranged. Everything is really organized and you can tell the country that the items come from. Oh and the best thing is that everything is Fair Trade, so I know the artisans are making money from their products.
I bought a few other things including this ring and bracelet. If I had unlimited money or at least more than I do now, I could have dropped several hundred dollars in that store within ten minutes. I soooo had to restrain myself!
I visited the store in Coolidge Corner in Brookline. I dropped off my car to get it detailed, so now it's all nice and clean. It takes three hours, so I walked around and did some shopping. I also found an Indian store called Kashmir Food & Spices and bought some rice flour. I'm going to be using that soon!
Well, I've given myself a time limit for this blog post and it expires in two minutes, so that's all folks! And I say a little prayer for all of you.
