Good Thursday to one and all. This evening my friend Kathy and I went to visit The House of Mirrors. It is a small museum in the residential home of Lydia Al Qattan, an artist who came to Kuwait from Italy. Her husband, now deceased, was a renowned Kuwaiti artist. I have heard of this place, but in 15 years of being here, this was my first visit. Let me just say it is awe-inspiring! Every surface is covered in a mosaic of mirrors. Each room has a theme. She explained the process, the family stories and history behind her designs, and was so quirky and lovable. She described the tour as a journey. It was that and more! So please, sit back, relax and enjoy the journey through pictures (although they don't do justice to her amazing work). Something you definitely need to see to believe!

This beautiful stairwell ...
Led us to a gallery upstairs. I did not take a lot of pictures in this space. I did snap a photo of these wonderful pieces -- their bodies are made from the blades of a ceiling fan.
I am thankful that I was given the opportunity to visit this beautiful home. What an absolute treasure it is. Wishing you all much peace, joy and many, many blessings, Tammy
