Last night I opened this fabulous birthday present from my mother. It's not my birthday yet but I knew she would want to hear about the gifts before she heads of to Russia.
I knew instantly that my lovely but uptight dining room was the perfect spot for a bit of funky fun from Zimbabwe. I have been meaning to find just the right textile for that table and I wanted it to be a total departure from the very traditional surroundings but also not trendy. Not trendy meant no ikat or suzani fabric.

The colors are the same as in my oriental rug so it works in the room even though the feel is completely different.
Speaking of funk.... I am in a bit of a painting funk.
This painting is still a work in progress. I struggled with it for much longer than normal and then just plopped in my mantel so I could decide what it needs and free up my easel.
I am working on sailboat paintings now.
What kinds of funky projects or shopping have you been up to?
