The Art of Craft

There is something utterly fascinating about professional crafts. Even if it's about ironing a shirt, or polishing shoes. I could watch them for hours... every single movement is so precise and somehow... beautiful. The mundane becomes art.

Jolly Trip To Helgas Folly

 I hope I can visit this place one day... "Helgas Folly" in Sri Lanka. Don't compare this place with regular hotels... this is a eccentric clash of freaking art, old days joie de vivre and expressive fun:
King Arthurs knights meet Victorian meet the Adams family.

 And woooow:
"The Folly has a colourful history... Playing host to many celebrities... Whose pictures together with family members line the walls, amongst them are Vivian Leigh, Peter Finch, Sir Laurence Olivier, David Lean, William Holden, Gregory Peck, Win Min Than, Sir Alec Guinness, Zandra Rhodes, Paula Yates, Andrew Logan, Mahatma Ghandi, Nehru, Indira Ghandi..."
 She looks fabulous.
 The owner is Helga de Silva Blow Perera (her son Detmar Blow was married to Isabella Blow).
"COURTESY of 'Living in Sri Lanka' James Fennell and Turtle Bunbury Thames and Hudson. "Helga the owner decorated the house in a whimsical tropical theme.." "emphasizes whimsy of life, reflecting Helga's preference to juxtapose and mix the pedigrees"..."she grew up in a world of colonial tea pots, Hollywood gossip and Marxist revolutions"
OMG... I just HAVE to go there!
