Jingle Bells

In Jaipur we managed to get some spontaneous and disconnected shopping done (much like I always do in Delhi – where I leave with a 20 item shopping list to only return with soap and limes).  We wandered into a music store, which had an awesome assortment of traditional instruments, including these bells. They are supposed to be used to put onto bracelets and anklets for dancing, but I decided to just buy a creative and unattached bundle for a solid US$7.  I came home and just stared at their beautiful color, handmade dents full of character, and delicate glass center bulbs.  Hopefully this will inspire me to start really decorating our apartment.

I am hoping to use them to decorate, either in fun bowls or just scattered across a table while entertaining.  Otheriwse I guess I’ll just have to take them dancing.DSC_0875
