The turtle beats the rabbit

October 18, 2011

 Consistent effort,  no matter how small, sparks magic, fills sails, butters bread, turns tides, instills faith, summons friends, improves health, burns calories, creates abundance, yields clarity, builds courage, spins planets, and rewrites destinies.

This month the ladies are busy working on our Mauritania Pom Pom Scarves....coming to Grand Central Station this Nov 14th.

“Authenticity, rarity, beauty, tradition, art, craft, …a good eye and an inquisitive mind can go a long way .

Take an inspiration trip to Philly’s, Material Culture. Over 60,000 sq feet of artifacts from all over the world. They have anything and everything from copper bowls, collectable textiles, interesting furniture, to wierd sculptures. Well worth a visit!

Shhhhh, but this is where we hunt down Mushmina’s display pieces!


Material Culture. 4700 Wissahickon Avenue
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19144

Having a meeting in 2 countries has never been easier. We love skype! The internet never ceases to amaze me. 

It’s Monday and all is well in Morocco (and in Philadelphia!). Mushmina now has another new home in Katie’s new local…. Fishtown, Philadelphia! I took the virtual tour. xo

Today's meeting
