Felt rugs

to be honest, I want all of these incredibly beautiful handmade Felt rugs. these are not just nice ornaments, but each of the rug combines some ancient symbols and story of the Mountains of Heaven and each rug come with full explanations of symbols and story they tell. that makes them so special. and unique. handmade in Kyrgyzstan, sold by London based company Felt.

ja atklāti, es gribētu ikvienu no šiem apbrīnojami skaistajiem ar roku darinātajiem Felt paklājiem. šie nav tikai skaisti ornamenti, bet katrā no paklājiem ir senu simbolu kombinācija un stāsts no Tjanšana kalniem. katrs paklājs tiek pārdots ar simbolu aprakstu un stāstu tas stāsta. tas šos mākslas darbus padara tik īpašus. un unikālus. paklāji ar rokām darināti Kirgiztānā, pārdoti Londonā esošā kompānijā Felt.

fun tea

today I came across super stylish tea makers from London with a limited range of differently packed teas. the name of company is Today was Fun. and they have their own philosophy how to make fun doing what you really want to do. and they take Fridays off… to make fun. :)
in the product range they have tea like Happiness tea. and let me cite the instruction on the package:
“1.Put the kettle on to boil. 2.Warm your favourite teapot. 3.Add one teaspoon of tea for each person.
4. Pour in boiling water and allow to brew for ten minutes, while you do one or more of the following: Lie on the sofa like a great big slug. Hug somebody. Dance like you danced when you were five years old. Rest. Take off your shoes and wiggle your toes. Sing like Pavarotti. Shake like Elvis. Help yourself to a huge slice of chocolate cake. Call a friend. Listen. Remember the last time you laughed out loud. Tickle somebody. Sit where you can feel the sun on your face. Smile. Look out a window and drink in the world. Run a hot bath. Wrap yourself in a duvet. Think about someone you love. Light a candle. Be still. Be present. Just be.
5.Stir and pour. 6.Enjoy.”
isn’t that sweet?
