News flash – at least this is news to me – if you love the goods from Good Earth, and if you live in the U.S. or the UK, you don’t have to go to India to get them. Although I’d highly recommend it, their stores are gorgeous!
A Facebook update flashed these Good Earth filigree Christmas ornaments before my eyes:
They weren’t in stores when I was in India just last week. My husband is still there but would he really take time out from work to go to Good Earth? It was hard to squeeze dinners in with him while I was there. Even though all humans need to eat, I think he is a super-human working machine. Hmmm. Do I ask? Not ask? Let’s look at the website. And oh happy day, Good Earth will ship a set of 6 ornaments in iconic peacock, elephant and tiger shapes. To my front door. In the U.S. Yes!
While we’re there, let’s look at what else Good Earth has right now …
Patterned silk pillows from their Serai collection:
They have beautiful colors and patterns in their fine bone china serving bowls. Their tableware is designed in collections that tell a story, so there are many pieces to coordinate with these:
I saw many jaali-work lanterns at their Chennai store. Here’s a few samples. The jaali is handcarved:
Here’s my photo of a collection of mixed lanterns hanging outside the Good Earth Chennai store. Hanging a group of them gives them a lot more impact!
I tend to not want a lot of wild pattern where I sleep. There are energetic looks around the rest of the house, but when I’m tired, I want tranquility. And indeed, these bedcoverings are called Tranquility. The texture! The color! And it’s silk, so luxurious:
If you like lots of pattern in your bedroom, they have that too, lots of block prints:
They have an array of vases too. This one is quite expensive, but gosh, isn’t it gorgeous:
I picked up some saffron honey while visiting their Chennai store. Have you ever heard of honey from saffron crocus fields?!? Me neither. I haven’t had a chance to taste it yet, looking forward to it.
