Color, Culture, Crafts

While walking the streets of Kathmandu and Pokhara, we saw so many vendors with colorful and wonderful items for sale. All of the following images make me very, very happy!

























Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give. - Eleanor Roosevelt

I hope your Wednesday is wonderful. Friendship blessings, Tammy

Dear Tammy
Your wonderful quote of Eleanor Roosevelt says it all!
Visiting these countries as you have done - only makes one so grateful for all of life's blessings that we take for granted.
Thank you mon amie.

The photos are all so colorful and happy! I love the peacock feathers! A few years ago a friend's daughter used them in her wedding table centerpieces and I still have two small feathers to enjoy.

So nice stopping by this morning :)

Such color and beauty! It is always interesting to view art from places all around the world.

Thanks for your comment on my post today. MJ's Farm is about 100 miles from where I live. I haven't been there yet, but I would LOVE to go for a visit. I wonder if they do old-fashioned "field trips". :D I love her magazine!

I Love market places. I would rather be there than in the big national monuments. These photos are wonderful. I'm going to India in Oct and cannot wait.
