Now this is something to turn heads. I think it is time we catch up in the head-dressing department.

What a lovely early fall day to gather on the lake and 'unleash the inner dragon'. First I've heard of this sport, and thought it enchanting and, well, pretty tribal to pack 20 paddles in a dragon-headed canoe.
Thoroughly enjoyed the throngs of people participating and spectating as they passed through the
Curried Myrrh tent, dressing their heads and elevating the art of temporary skin adornment with henna, gilding and harquus.
Thank you to all who passed through and purchased head gear and gilding...

Check out the new style at Free People...."Tayri" ...meaning: "love" in the Imazhigen language
This style features a "scarf" that is artfully knotted around a fabric braided band. You can take off the scarf, and use it creating several different looks with your Tayri Turban.
...love showing itself in action...
"Rahab's Rope exists to give hope and opportunity to women and girls that have been forced into the commercial sex trade of India. By creating a safe and loving environment, they are enabled to grow and develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. Our work provides basic education and vocational training for each girl and woman who come through our centers; ultimately, allowing them to integrate into their communities in a positive and constructive manner."
I hosted a couple of 'home shows' in tribute to and in support of Rahab's Rope-to build awareness and raise some more money that could go to buying tools/supplies for them. We were able to send them over $250, and are dreaming of embroidery sewing machines, and beadwork projects...
Vicki left for India right after Christmas, I sent some patterns and some new season colors with her. We're getting started on this thing, and I am so excited. I hope to go visit India, with my daughter. I can see us sitting on the floor and beading. That would be awesome.
