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.

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.

I didn't know there were silkworms in Thailand. They are really ugly and strange animals but silk is great...
