bolivian blankets….

12:09 am













traditionally known as Frasadas , these beautiful woven wool blankets from Boliva are used in homes as throws or a rug. Such amazing colours, I just wish I had bought so many more, on my last trip to Peru………..all images taken by Gypsy River.

antiques from India….

I just love Indian antique furniture, each piece tells a story and of course is all one of a kind.These shots I took on my last visit to my favourite store ‘Antiques out of India’ in Melbourne…..

shutter loving…

10:39 pm

I am in search of some old 70′s shutter doors…..I am wanting to give my kitchen a mini make over…and I’m thinking of upcycling some like this, to replace my exsisting cupboard doors. Just love these old Indonesian shutters used at Potato head Club in Bali…
Will have to hit up Ebay….or ship some back on my next trip to Bali….

bathroom re work…..

10:56 pm

yesterday, I made a new bathroom curtain from old vintage tablecloths, that I had in my craft bins….Once I hung it up, I decided to re work the styling in the entire bathroom…..
I added a Moroccan wedding blanket to the floor, old industrial stool and vintage vases. I relocated an old wooden stool and a craft project River and I made..our doily bowl full of shells…..hung my vintage shoe lasts and then added the vintage aztec Laos fabric to finish off……
I feel like I have a new bathroom, it’s amazing what a little redecorating can do for the soul….happy days!
