  16. Those Hookahs are looking beautiful – artistic. I would not imagine one using it for smoking though. Sigh.

    I would love one of those carpets Lynn. Only problem would be that I trip over small cracks in the flooring tiles, so carpets are definitely out of the question for me. They are all so pretty though. Too bad I’m already using all of my wall space for other things. Hugs. A.
