Focus On Bali: Shopping

This will be my last post on Bali but the design impressions that I gained there will definitely continue to shine through in my design choices.  They have such a strong artistic element and love of nature & beauty that the possibilities for shopping were endless.  I could have bought four times what I did!  Here are just a few of my favorite things:









I bought one of these antique offering bowls, used in the past for the women to carry offerings to the temple on their heads.  I loved the history, the faded design and the beautiful display it would make on a table in our new home.



This old guy and his wife are going to have a new place to kneel:  on our fireplace mantel.

I bought a gorgeous antique textile for use along the bottom of our bed, or as a throw. 
I'll show you guys once it arrives in the shipment!

Bartering:  definitely the name of the game all over Bali.

I hope you enjoyed our little shopping trip.
Any favorites?

Love those offering bowls and textiles for sure but I don't think I would have been able to resist that bench or one of those Buddha's. Thank you for taking us along Barbara.

Enjoy your day!

I'm sure you think about the things you wish you had bought. I know I would have. What was the most memorable aspect of Bali in your children's eyes, I wonder?

Hey friend! What are those green pendants? Glass or pottery? Either way, I love them. How did you not buy everything in sight?
