Morning Coffee with Black Diamonds, Indian Inspiration and Carla Skaff

My last week was one I enjoyed a lot though it drained me. So I decided to stay most of my week-end between my bedroom and the kitchen… And given that I had for the last 6 months in front of my eyes a Lego box I had offered my brother (that he never constructed – I, apparently was, 10years late); I decided to finally build my first Lego. In my life I got so accustomed to seeing my brother build Legos that for me this world was a forbidden territory, one I shall never trespass.. But here I was sitting on the floor and building my first Lego which I am very proud of. Lego in the process…My first Lego, Done!

Yesterday, monday morning as I opened my facebook I read all these curses and negative quotes about monday mornings…. Too bad for them because my week started with a warm coffee and Carla Skaff’s amazing line of jewellery inspired by her love for Indian culture… I must have misread the invitation email; I arrived there one hour earlier and found myself enjoying a great conversation with the Skaff family.

Carla is the youngest of the “Skaff Sisters” -the charming co-founders of Sunflowers-. She, on top of running their adorable boutique in Saifi, has a line of high-end jewellery. she sells mostly rings and earrings that are designed in Lebanon and produced in India…. And yesterday morning she extended he exhibition to one more day. So I went to the Skaff’s boutique and was happy to see I was welcome even though I wasn’t quite punctual. I had the intention to help them a bit with setting the small details that were left, but instead I enjoyed taking pictures…

Needless to say the Sunflower girls don’t do things half way and for Valentines each person left with a heart full of lavender…
