Alfombras As you can probably surmise by looking at my blog or shop, I’m emphatically drawn to anything bright, colorful, psychedelic and fabulous! That is why I could not wait until Easter to write this post. I found these amazing carpets and had to share the trippyness with you yes I just just made up a word!) They are called Alfombras and are temporary street carpets made from hand-dyed sawdust, rice, flowers, and other vegetable material. They originated in Guatemala and are made during their Holy Week / Easter celebration. I am amazed at how intricate some of the patterns are and the vibrancy of the colors.

I believe that colors can invoke feelings of happiness, clarity and a variety of moods, so I immediately copied several pics into my inspiration folder for later viewing. My friend Leanne blogs about color theory and explains it better than I ever could, so check out her blog Rainbow Revolution for more insight on this trippyness! O.K., I’ll stop now!)

Here are some pictures of these fantastic magical carpets…..

    wow, love the colors!

    Soo, what did you think of last night? I was pretty confused on alot of the designs, i was expecting something diffrent, they all used the same seatbelts, but the coat dress was fantastic!! I loved kenley’s 40’s peplum skirt and top – I totally enjoyed the one that won, the look was very ultra mod, but the hips looks funky!

    Another cry baby went home, i love it – he needs to get over himself fast!!

    Poor Stelllla – I did like it, was not so bad!! Blaine, what was that mess!! I got the concept, but the fit was awful!!
