Corner View – White in Thailand.

Thanks Jane for Corner View and thank you to Natsumi for this weeks theme – White. 

Here are a couple of  pictures from my corner and my home.

First around Thailand.

Monk dressed in WHITE.white monk

This is a woman monk, rare but not uncommon.

Jasmine flowers.

sold by a street vendor.  These flowers are bought and offered at the temples or spirit houses everywhere.

Silk Worms.

which just happen to be white caterpillars. 

Before I go on I just got to add these – white with a little yellow.  These are silk worm cocoons.

which eventually end up being spun into something beautiful.

Like this – white silk wrap.

And now for some white in my house.

White Elephants DSCF8733

I bought these at a craft market.  White elephants are significant animals in Thailand, but that’s for another post, another day.

Shells.DSCF8684 that I display in my house. Back in  PNG these are used for bride price.

this was a happy day.

white flower potsDSCF8696

which allow the flowers to be any color.

and a white lotus with  scented candlesDSCF8720 

Well there you have it.  That is the White in my world. 

Make sure to travel and see other corner views from Jane’s side bar. I’m sure it will be inspiring.

Dana said...

Love all the things in your house :)

Mari said...

You have lots of neat white things here!
I have to tell you that something strange just happened. I have had this blog in my Google reader for some time but it never seemed to update when you put a post up. That meant I had to remember to check myself and my memory isn't that good. So this afternoon I had looked at all my blogs and was checking e-mails, when I see I have 25 new items in my Google reader. I check and 25 of your posts are now showing up. Weird, huh? Hopefully it'll keep working now!

Thom said...

Thanks-- glad you enjoyed! Would be interested to learn more about the elephants there. (I rode an elephant when I was in Ayutthaya!) Here, a white elephant gift is one that no one wants. There are white elephant parties and you can steal funky things from friends-- it's quite entertaining!

Jeannette said...

What there not to love about the white in your world?
The monks, the jasmin flowers .. so exotic to me and so beautiful.
