Dream Catching

We certainly ate our way around Bali, but I managed a healthy dose of shopping too. The 'heart flutter' I mention in my blog introduction was in full force last week when I found the hand woven dream catcher above. I spotted a smaller one in a beautiful shop display and ended up getting vague directions to find 'Bananas Batik'. Off I went - I walked, asked a second shop owner, and walked some more. Finally, the sixth shop owner knew exactly where Bananas Batik was. And there she was - in the upstairs workshop, amongst about 40 other individually designed dream catchers. It was a tough choice, but I'm happy with the yellow beauty that now hangs on the wall. Back to the previously mentioned shop, Jewel Rocks - this is definitely a store to visit, above are photos of their eclectic displays and my new little collection - perfect gifts for people back home. Visit Bananas Batik / Jalan Raya Seminyak 17A Bali-Indonesia
