IT'S LYNNY KANSAS
DON'T LET THE RUBY SLIPPERS,
OR THE DOROTHY INSPIRED NICKNAME
FOOL YOU., THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME,
BUT TRAVELING IS FUN.
A few years ago, I happened across a store in Holland Road Shopping centre, here in Singapore, selling some amazing Mango Wood items, vases, bowls, candle holders and lamps, which I thought were really unusual and unique. But the thing that caught my eye the most, were the red saga seeds that were used as an accent, to add a pop of colour to the displays. I ended up buying a small candle holder, together with some saga seeds, just as I had seen it on display in the store. Over the years a few people have asked me in particular about these Saga Seeds, or "love seeds" as they are also known, wanting to know where I bought them.
I have been taking Mosaic classes this past year with my friend Tammy at Mosaic Society, and used some saga seeds in a mosaic project. I am thinking about using them again in another project, so I thought I would head back to Holland Village to see if the store was still there in the hopes I could buy more.
Thankfully, the store was still there on the 3rd floor of the Holland Road Shopping centre, and I was warmly greeted by the owner, Ms. Ramzan.
A word of warning, the seeds are actually quite toxic, so you obviously must not eat them and should keep them away from small children and pets. They are a beautiful decorative accent though, which I love, love, love.
