Susie's Sitting Room



A fireplace, chess, potpourri.
A quiet oasis from the bustle of the medina.



A quirky painting of an old 'bab" - city gate.



More lovely smells in a bowl - dried leaves of the roses which are so abundant here.



Cushions all lined up just so........and the metal lights which cast pretty shadows.
Marrakech is a lot about light in all sorts of ways.



And lounging in bed reading in a quiet colored room at the Riad Villa elArsa one of the prettiest places to stay in all of Marrakech.

Such absolutely lovely images of light - soft and alluring. Any more?

Hey Harriet said...

Oh I thought that was a bowl of salad until I read your description of it being dried rose leaves. Silly me! (obviously people don't send me enough roses so I don't know well enough what they look like ;) I want a room at the Riad Villa! It looks like bliss to me :)

Stunning.
You must miss this place so much.

When will you go back!

Frances said...

Absolutely wonderful to see you today. I know that you must have got caught in the long, long thunderstorm. What a way to welcome you back to NYC.

Looking forward to learning much more about Marrkesh.

Elizabeth, when I saw your shot of the rose petals... I completely had forgotten that beautiful, lovely rose-smelling hand cream they have in Morocco. I'm not a fan of flowery smelling creams, but that *rose* cream was just intoxicating ... Thank you for sharing .. (p.s. just realized the link to my blog on your bloglink is actually incorrect ! it's just "artofpractice" -- I wanted to tell you so that I didn't lose you as I so enjoy your visits to my blog!) ... take good care, Roxanne
