Flea Finds

It's March. Wait, not even that. It's mid March.

Wasn't Christmas like, uh, yesterday? 

Time is flying by! So as to not waste time, I just wanted to share a little book rec. 

I recently finished The Hundred-Foot Journey by Richard C. Morais. It's the story of an Indian boy and his family who move from Bombay to France where the boy falls under the training of an elite French chef, and then goes on to be one of the most famed chefs in France. And let me just tell you: I could eat this book. Even the pages smell good. Annnnnnd, it's being made into a movie this year with Steven Spielberg and Oprah at the helm. What's not to love? 

And now, all I want to do is to curl up in bed with a book, but the books I'm starting are currently at the library and not on my bed stand where they belong.  I don't know what to do with myself! 

I will leave you with a new tidbit of information that I learned last week at the Georgetown Flea Market. You know those beautiful and intricate and colorful designs that you often see on Chinese vases and bowls? There is a word for that! The technique is called cloisonné. An Indian man told me so at his little stand at the Georgetown Flea. And I was so enthralled and a bit sheepish since I didn't know what he meant, so I ended up buying two cloisonné vases right then and there. 


And we also bought the best movie ever. 

This warrants a little shout out for the Things I Love about Georgetown. TILAG number three: the Georgetown Flea.
