These gorgeous fabrics are a modern interpretation of traditional Indian motifs designed by Mary Mulcahy. The fabrics are made in India using the traditional Kalamkari process, which does not cause pollution and provides fair trade for over 50 families in the Indian village where there are made. The patterns are printed on organically grown cotton using natural dyes. The results are soft, beautiful, timeless fabrics. Quilts, Cushions and Bed Linen are also available in coordinating patterns
Now available in Australia

Naive Art

I very much love this picture by Julius Povazan, one of Slovakia's most significant naive painters who's work can be found in the permanent collection of the Gallery of Naive Art at Schaubmar's Mill in Pezinok, Slovakia and also at the French Musee International de l'art Naif 15, rue de la Mairie, 78 490 Vicq, France.

It is a present from a very good friend who came to visit us here in Australia. It has a special place in my house.

Book by Katarina Cierna is available from http://www.gorila.sk/product/97834

My Travel

Last year my family - I, my husband, and my beautiful children (19,15 )had an absolutely perfect holiday in Europe. We stayed for a few days in Paris and from there we rented a car and explored France-Loire Valley, Carcassonne, Avignon, Provence, Cote d'Azure.... and Italy - Milan, Florence, Pisa, Rome, Venice.... I cannot wait to go there again. In fact, I am organizing Family Reunion in Tuscany for Summer 2009. I am looking for a Tuscan Villa of my dreams for 20 people. I really , really can't wait!!!
