I really never thought of Foosball as a high-end sport. My personal Foosball experience consists of seeing a Foosball table grace the main room of every male’s room!! But Eleven Forty doesn’t make ordinary Foosball tables. Each table is hand crafted with etched glass, stainless steel and assorted exotic woods. Utilizing computer technology, precision engineering and innovative construction, it has transformed a recreational game into a piece of functional art.

Quiltsrÿche turns traditional quilting on its ear with modern heirloom quilts that look like they were made by your metal-loving, half-blind Grandma. Bold designs, eye-popping color combinations and a touch of evil are the hallmarks of Quiltsrÿche quilts. A one-of-a-kind rock quilt won’t match your curtains, but it will have enough character and craftsmanship to captivate you year after headbanging year.

Catherine Bertola

Catherine Bertola‘s haunting and evocative art uses the debris of humanity – decay in the form of dust, the stuff of human passage. “Women are traditionally trained to notice it, erase it, halt its pervasiveness. Only a bad woman would collude with it, invite it in, reconstitute it”. Place, history and how the past resurfaces in the present are core themes; installations and objects subtly intervene with spaces, responding to the architecture and history of each site. Unashamedly beautiful, these transient works excavate the patterns of lost lives gathered in the dust of abandoned rooms, their fragility and temporality invoking the spectator’s own corporeality.

Modeled after the Wardian cases first built for growing ferns in the early 1800s, our terrarium creates a warm, humid environment that encourages plant growth, no matter what the temperature outside. The terrarium is crafted from wrought iron with a pointed arch and cutout trefoil motifs. The glass doors close to help seal in moisture. Really unique indoor piece.

I couldnt help myself not to admire these doorstep drawings, amusing colors and designs! I wish all our doorsteps are that inviting!! Its an indian tradition for a festival called Diwali (not the grape leaves)! Diwali has many legends and religious accounts to it. Lights and diyas are lit to signifying the driving away of darkness and ignorance, as well as the awakening of the light within ourselves. Diwali is a time for family gatherings, food, celebration and pooja. The goddess Laxmi plays a major role in this festival, as do Ram and Sita. This autumn festival is celebrated for five continuous days, of which each one has its own significance.

The house is kept clean and rangoli is drawn at the doorstep to welcome Goddess Laxmi. For the best time for puja, a pandit is consulted. The general things needed for a diwali puja are silver and gold coins, suparis, uncooked Rice, paan leaves, kumkum for applying tilak, mithaai (Indian sweets), camphor, agarbattis (incense sticks), dry fruit (almonds, cashews), flower petals and Lakshmi-Ganesh icon.

For more info, go to Diwali Festival site.
