Gypsy Find: The Gypsy story.....

Since I discovered Judy`s blog, Red Velvet......it became one of my favourite places to visit. Judy is an amazing artist, one that I truly admire, but I came to know her also as a great person.

Judy shared with us a post on Gypsies.....Judy, I am so honoured that you dedicated this one to me.....as this is not your normal Gypsy post...not about the amazing colour, the dancing, the spirit, the fantasy........but the story of the gypsies during the Holocaust ........

Please visit Judy`s blog and read this.......this Gypsy was very, very touched.....

I visited and was amazed by the powerful stories, which sadly never received enough press. And they need to be told. Thanks for the link. xo

Hi gypsy Purple:
I love your blog and this morning I read Judy's article on the atrocities done to the Gypsies in Germany. I read, I saw and I cried. I also love the 1915 cover of Vogue you put up. A relative of yours, I bet!!!
The rickshaws of My Marrakesh are my now favorite mode of "want".
Thank you for visiting mys o inadequate blog. I will get better

Isn't it amazing what awful things people can do to other people? A visit to the Jewish Holocast museum in Paris is so sad.

I just found you..great blog you have here:-)
I read the post about the atrocities on the Gypsies...it is really sad.
In India we have gypsies from around the country. I have always been fascinated by them and the amazing craftmanship some of them possess like the Lambanis...

Will be dropping by often :-)
