The Old Silk Route

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 couldn't possibly choose a favorite, although I have tried several times.  I can't wait to go back and spend more time with Ann and in her shop. I feel as though I missed so many things by seeing so much. Kind of like the forest for the trees.
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.
