BALI ~ My Treasure Island ~
Bali has grabbed a hold of my heart. Oh the treasures….
I am getting super duper excited…just dreaming of the day that the container will arrive from Bali to Ontario. This is the third container that I have helped to co-ordinate. I have made purchases for a new store called KARISMA….soon to open, in Fergus, Ontario. This kind of purchasing is the number one FAVOURITE part of my job. No, it is not the paperwork. If an excel spreadsheet had a face, I would punch it. I love the design, the work, the travel, the buying….I DETEST the paperwork. Gross. Moments like this though, are awesome. The anticipation of the container ! Over land and sea….woot woot !
I have about 5 biz million photos of Bali. I can only begin to share a few with you. Here we GO …..I am sharing with sugar bear…
The colours of life ( Yes, I bought this painting). Holy smokes, who wouldn’t ? So puuurty.
The gorgeous energy of so many talented Balinese. I meet every single artist who makes the goods that I buy. Best part ever.
The artistry. Such attention to detail.
The ceremony. Ok, these kids may not look tooooo happy about all that make up. Truth is, the children are a happy bunch. The Balinese love their families. They have a warmth about them, that I truly admire. Balinese people are so very~very kind.
The abundance of GORGEOUS lighting ! So simple. So different. Yes, these lights may also be used to hold a chicken !!! (minus the light bulb)
Finding things that make me laugh ! Uhm, yes, I BOUGHT THEM. I LIKE TO LAUGH. These were “work in progress”. I liked them. I feel like I am a work in progress. I could relate. These are what I would call….CONVERSATION PIECES...tee hee…
Art in wood…..over the top awesome….OK, OK, the next pic does not really look too glamorous. Truth is though, that these tables are really GORGEOUS. Deciding on which table to buy was like picking out a puppy. No, I never ever want to leave one behind. This is why Michael never lets me near a puppy litter either.
Moments of R & R (that almost NEVER HAPPENS) at my favourite hotel…My favourite place is Padma Resort in Legian, Bali~ BY THE WAY. The photos from their website are just OK. Don’t let that fool you. I promise that the hotel rocks out loud. http://www.padmahotels.com/. P.S. Don’t let this dragon scare you.
The incredible finds that I want to BUY MILLIONS of. Yes, I control myself. Kind of. Uhm, not really. This may not look fan-tab-u-lous to you, but they make me drool…..
Yes, I know it is only a CHAIR ~ but ~ hello ~ they are YUMMY !!!
Curious about my pics ? I take them all with my Sony DSC- HX1. I am head over heels in love with that camera. Nothing ‘high falutin’ about my photo skills. I don’t even have a fancy dancy edit program. Nuthin’. It is as simple as pushing one button. All automatic. Awesome ZOOOOOOMMMMMmmm. Best part is…I never had to read the manual. Bliss.
