Jodhpuri Chai Party HNT

This is a little dollhouse that I made in woodshop. It's designed after a typical home in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
Jodhpur is famous for having many houses painted the very same shade of blue.
This may be because blue is the colour of the Brahmin caste, or because the blue colour repels insects, or simply because it's more cooling.
It depends who you ask! Oh India, you crack me up so bad! *UPDATE*See comments section for another take on why the houses are blue.....
I was so excited when I discovered that I could take my pictures of Jodhpur to a paint shop, where they matched the colour perfectly! They put this little lense thing on the picture, then it told the paint mixer how much of what colour to use. I don't know about you, but I was impressed! LOL

My dollhouse looks a little lonely, don't you think? Why don't we have a tea party!

Welcome, everybody! As you can see, Logo is already here! Get another cup ready Logo, here comes BS. He's right behind you in the window!

Heh! Ok so enlarge this pic, because I want you to see the lovely Crapola that Logo sent me!
Notice the teeny gold violin, the candlesticks, and the tiny glass fruits on the table. Those are the crapolas! And they are really tiny! Ooh I just love tiny things!
(For those of you wondering why I'm calling it crap...we have this game we adopted, that I saw once about a year ago on another blog. We send each other stuff, then we have to make art and posts and what nots with it.)

How'd I do BS? Schadeboy?

I leave you with this limerick, I'm saree it's so bad! Har har! I wrote it with a couple other friends.....

There once was a man from Bombay

Who just didn't know what to say

when the girl from next door

caught her saree in the door

and unraveled her dress all the way.

Happy HNT everyone!
Mr Ratburns got his own kind of tea party!

That is the best dollhouse I have seen all day. But I really love the blue. Reminds me of my favorite team, UNC.

Here's what my Indian pal has to say about the blue:

The simple idea is: most of the colors you see in traditional Indian houses are usually made up of calcium.. whitewash.. not very color fast.. so they add earth colors to the white dye.. in the north blue is more easily available (indigo)... in the south we mix it with red clay or molten seashells.
or you would see yellow here in Ullal for example..
...and in really old houses on the coast you will see the same blue walls with a black strip at the base.. you wouldnt believe it.. that black strip is actually waterproof.. prevents seepage.. and it is made of: Petroleum jelly.. of the primitive sort.. the tar they collect from the sea.

So there ya have it! Cool, huh?

Happy HNT!

The perspective of you sitting is perfect for the image. A little color matching (brightness and contrast, really) and you'd have it. The photo of (I'm presuming) BS in the background is well matched as far as lighting goes. Doing a slight gausian blur on the layer in which he appears will give him more depth and really make that particular edit shine. Overall, this is a great (second?) photochop. Good job! Happy HNT!

Tara Tainton said...

Very cool! Looks like a ton of fun; I love digging into all kinds of crafty stuff myself. ;)

And thank you for introducing me to your blog!

Very cute. I also wanted to thank you for being such a inspiration to me with all your kind words as I've been going through my "divorce", you've really helped me out.
HHNT, you're so awesome.

Great post Susie. Made me smile. I had my room in Malaysia painted 2 shades of blue when I was a errr... a teenager! Does it really keep the insects away? Hmmm......

Happy belated HNT!

"Lord, I have a problem!"
"What's the problem, Eve?"
"Lord, I know you've created me and have provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals and that hilarious comedy snake, but I'm just not happy."
"Why is that, Eve?" came the reply from above.
"Lord, I am lonely. And I'm sick to death of apples." "Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man for you."
"What's a 'man,' Lord?"
"This man will be a flawed creature, with aggressive tendencies, an enormous ego and an inability to empathize or listen to you properly, he'll basically give you a hard time. He'll be bigger, faster, and more muscular than you. He'll be really good at fighting and kicking a ball about and hunting fleet-footed ruminants, But, he'll be pretty good in the sack."
"I can put up with that," says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow.
"Yeah well, he's better than a poke in the eye with a burnt stick. But, there is one condition."
"What's that, Lord?"
"You'll have to let him believe that I made him first."
:D :D :D
