I, too, have been to India many times, and am a textile collector. My complaint against John Robeshaw is not only the absurdity of his prices but, much more seriously, that he cuts up antique tribal textiles to make pillows. I am talking about authentic, made for tribal use textiles.

Pillow makers, in general destroy the world's tribal heritage - but to have a company that touts its do gooder credentials do it systematically is very problematic.

Wow. The day that I start worrying about when my pillow chopping achieves the right harmony with another design element is the day I need a new hobby or pet in a bad way.

We left our trapezoid windows uncovered because we like the light coming in and nobody can see in at that height. In the bedroom we use shutters on bottom and in the living room we use bottom up shades (working on decorative curtain panels that will hang along the sides).

Yes, it helps me see that the unused shutters in my basement are going to stay there. Thank you, I keep thinking that unused shutter + need for window treatment = shutters on windows, but you'd made me see that all it does not.

I love my family photos, but since I'm an avid collector of other things, I confine the photos to my office. I've used a variety frames and they cover every horizontal surface. They make my time in that room so very enjoyable. In addition, I have floor to ceiling, wall to wall closet doors, which I used to display some of my favorites. I mounted these black & white photos on neutral paper and embellished them with art deco designs. They look great against the colorful doors. (Note: these are copies; I keep the originals safely stored away.)

Marigolds aren't just there to brighten the patch up they are essential if you are looking to try and limit the use of chemical sprays to deter unwanted pests. Marigolds attract beneficial mini beasts (hover flies, lady birds etc) who then in turn eat the aphids etc There are other beneficial flowers that do the same job if you aren't so keen on vibrant orange. Chamomile, daisy, flowering onion garlic, sunflowers amongst others do the job too. Leave nettles growing wild if you can as this is where ladybirds live. Have fun and hope this helps!

I love the idea of sandboxes, but if you have cats wandering free around your neighbourhood you probably want one you can cover up, or you've just created one giant litter box!

Victoran, make sure you boost the pots up off the ground with spacers (don't block the drain hole!), or move the pots every season. If the pots are resting on the ground, the tree roots will migrate up through the drain holes and into the pots. I was called out to troubleshoot a container garden that had 1/2-inch tree roots coming up through the bottom. They had been in the same place for a couple of years.

RollingPlanter.com. i like your ethos. Makes sense to have rolling containers until you know how much sun your favorite plants need.

My boss says that used coffee grounds around her potatoes keep the potato bugs off of them. She also uses stove ashes as a sort of fertilizer. She plants everything according to date/moon/Farmer's Almanac every year and her results are usually really good. I've also heard that human hair clippings around a garden will keep the deer away. I've known people to ask a hairdresser to collect a day or two's worth in a bag for them.

Hair is best if it's not freshly washed. When I was young (we had a garden in the country among our farm crops) we used marigolds planted at the end of each row and human hair collected from brushed over the course of the year and kept in a baggie until use...the point is to keep human smell near the plants even when you're not around. Time for me to dig up all those garden memories though as we're attempting our first in-ground planting this year (fingers crossed).
