I have been patiently ( okay not so "patiently") waiting for my orchid cacti to begin their blooming season. They spent a rough winter in the greenhouse surviving on what I thought was enough attention, only to discover that in reality, the attention they received was just barely enough to keep them going. Since moving them outside however and discovering my mistakes, I have repotted them and begun feeding them on a regular schedule and they are so much happier.
I started doing the " happy dance"

Tucked away in a corner of downtown Aberdeen, NC is a treasure like none other. I wandered in to a wonderful gallery run by the most delightful lady and had the best time. For a moment, (okay several hours) time didn't exist. This little shop had the most beautiful silk tapestries, silver jewelry, East Asian clothing, Art , Home Decor and so much more. Ann Magee, the delightful lady I told you about, was just such a joy to talk to and she has traveled through Brazil, and India and Pakistan and collected such beautiful things.
I will be posting more about Ann and her wonderful shop and a project we are planning to collaborate on soon. In the meantime if you want to feast your eyes on some wonderful East Asian art and silk tapestries check out The Old Silk Route. You just can't blame me if you go crazy for the gorgeous colors and textures like I did.
