WEEKLY WINNERS


More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

This time it was quiet difficult to find some weekly winners as I had the choice between a grey world outside or my five cats inside. I doubt that Mr. G. wanted to be a weekly winner.

I remembered the beautiful Indian shop I had discovered in Waterloo and decided to go back



Even the sun found it a good idea and came out. Here is the insignificant entrance. But then I discovered quiet a lot of beauty from another world.



I don't know the name of this god but found the statue amazing



the same with this one all in alabaster and gold painting



a necklace



the beautiful painted elephant



a box



a Rickshaw to be carried around



a column



another elephant



and these holy cows.

This very big shop with two floors was crowded on this saturday morning. I bought an adorable little goose for our bathroom.

I love India especially the food. That elephant God is Lord Ganesha.

I like indians' shop too. We have one still nice in a carrefour galery but surely not as big as yours! + when you enter in it it smells good indian encens! We had sun this morning, but now it's grew...grrr!
