are disputed: many people believe it to have begun in Sukothai, Thailand 700

history of vegetable carving is that it originates in Thailand. It started
during the Loi Kratong festival in the 14th century. During Loi Kratong, rafts
are individually decorated using many objects, including banana leaves and
leaves are carefully chosen from the Chinar tree which is native to India,
Pakistan and China. Chinar tree leaves closely resemblance the leaf of a Maple
tree. The size of these leaves vary
since no two leaves are exactly the same. Each leaf is approximately 8 to 10
inches in size. Once gathered, leaves are then put through a 60 step process
such as shaving, pressing, curing, dying and so on. The outer surface of the
leaf is carefully removed without cutting or removing the leafs veins which add
detail into the subject matter of the carving.

Few weekeks ago a I stumbled upon some unique purses.
Elegant, lady-like style with
special textile print and interesting designs. I can’t have enough with
watching the photos and I can’t mind up my mind which one to buy. They all are
different and cute. Although the design reminds me of the 40’s fashion, the
purses seem to be quite fresh for out times. Like the designer says “Vintage
style doesn't have to be boring ;)”. More to say, vintage style makes you stand
out from the crowd and it is more actual than ever.

I am starting this blog writing about bags, so to start in a fresh way. Every
lady needs, first of all, a bag to put her “little” things in. I say little
because they are never few J. You know what I mean. The Tramp
Lee Designs bags stand out through the prints. If I could describe them in just

a quick glimpse at your bag and your worries will fade away.
