Red Tuesday

Pretty chrysanthemums
Fresh carrots from my garden

This cloth purse is a gift from my younger sister who lives in Meghalaya.
(N.E. India)
It is hand woven with a unique tribal design.
The while shawl is from Himachal (N.W. India)

Dear Amrita,
your ruby items are chosen with care, as always I dare say.
I bet the Chrysanthemums are from your garden too?
The carrots made me wanna much.
They look so crisp and fresh.
The intricate weave pattern is close to some traditional Norwegian weaving.
Then we know a lot of traditional skills have wandered the long way from India to Norway with the great poeple - migrations hundreds of years ago.
India was a nation of high developed culture when the Norwegians ran around with stone axes and clothes of animal fur.
Have a peaceful 16th day in Advent.
From Felisol

Wow, God must have given you an overload of blessings for your garden. Your vegetables look so delectable. How I wish we're just neighbors and I can go over to your backyard and ask for some of your luscious vegetables. Thanks for your appetizing post. God bless you always my friend.

I have had quite a visit here in India via your blog Amrita. The past week has been filled with such joyful singing and traditions from your homeland. Thanks for sharing your fresh flowers and crunchy carrots. My garden is black and white today ... blanketed in a few feet of snowy white powder and barren trees and vines. You are blessed. Hugs from the North Woods of Idaho.

Oh i wish I could give all you carrots and vegetables fresh from our garden. What fun it would be.

Rebecca we have orange carrots too, but I like the red ones as they are tastier and sweeter.
We make a dessert with grated carrots, sugar, milk and dried fruit called carrot halwa.
