Brocade on My Mind

I promised to share some more fun tidbits from my recent trip to India. During a stop at a beautiful fabric store in Jaipur, I spotted this gorgeous, purple brocade pillow cover with gold threadwork. It works so well in my place and I'm actually a bit sad that I didn't buy one or two more to keep. But all I can do is treasure this one while it lasts. I've been moving this pillow from room to room for the past few weeks. My favorite places for it are my bed and sofa. Part of the reason I appreciate the design so much is because of the significant amount of time I'm sure it took to produce. There's always beauty in hard work.
