Red White & Blue From India

Happy fourth of July everyone! Last month, I hosted a giveaway for, a beautiful website associated with National Geographic filled with handmade goods from across the globe. One of the items that I showcased was THIS bright red cotton throw, made by the UMBVS (Urmul Marusthali Bunkar Vikas Samiti) Desert Weavers of India. As a thank you, they sent me one!  Its so beautiful and well made and even came with a gorgeous hand written card written in Hindi. When I opened the box, it smelled lightly of incense. I love the white accent stripes and cobalt blue embroidery. I could easily use it as a tablecloth, a blanket for my bed or even a rug. Here it is in my home:

sheets from Target
throw pillow from IKEA
pick-stich quilt second hand purchase from neighbor

And just for fun here are my boys in bed after shooting the new bedding:
