in case you missed it, here they are

Namaste from the dark and vivid alleys of #OldDelhi! Erin and Katie here from @mirthcaftans. We're zigzagging across #India in search of special fabrics and trims. First stop, #ChandniChowk Market, with our trusty #rickshaw driver.

Hopping off to visit trim stockrooms only reachable on foot, through crumbling doorways and up steep stairs. Shweta, our colleague >> terrified in the background that she is going to loose us.

Fresh lime soda! The ultimate refresher. Why we in the US don't have stands like these on every corner is beyond us.

A lesson in stopping and taking a moment. Beautiful scenes like this abound in India, but you've got to keep your eyes open and look around.

Early start at eco chic @savistaretreat in the lovely country outside of #Jaipur.
Farm fresh masala eggs and goats milk chai make for good fuel, Indian style.

Meet Tikam Chand, world's coolest photographer, with his 150 year old box camera. We'll never forget having our portrait taken outside of #HawaMahal and waiting to see him develop it in his bucket

A welcome like this is going to our heads. We might be royalty. Ask for a tour of the just renovated Rajmahal Palace by @sujanluxury to see all 48 custom designed wallpapers. It's an oasis fit for a queen, even if just for dinner
