I’m sure everyone is sick to death of the weather we have been having, at last it seems like it’s going to start warming up….. fingers crossed.
I was lucky enough to have a holiday in Rajasthan at the worst point, there was a blizzard on the day I left and another on the day I returned! The holiday was fantastic. I had worked in Calcutta for a fashion company when I was younger but never had the chance to travel.
We hired a driver called Vinod who was a similar age to us so drove at a sedate pace, thank god. We travelled massive distances from Jaipur to Mandawa, Fatephur, Sitalanger, Bikaner, Khuri, Jaisalmer, Rankapoor, Udaipur, Todgarth, and back to Jaipur. Stayed in some fabulous Havelis, slept in the desert and rode a camel, saw forts and palaces. Visited Vinod’s family farm had lunch and met the ‘cobra man‘. Every second there was something to look at…. the colour, painting, carving, and chaos were invigorating .
I’m not a great photographer but I could see photo opportunities everywhere. The holiday was an inspiration although we didn’t get much chance to relax... we were away for just ten days.
It was the tonic I needed to get through this long winter.
Back to work…
We are topping up current maker’s ranges and looking for new ideas ready for the Festival in May.
Pop in and have a look there is so much more that I havn’t included. I will let you know soon what’s new for May.
