We fossicked this green & red bamboo spirit house from the local Battambang market. Amazingly, both its design and colors are perfect for Christmas. Indeed, it looks more Western than Asian, what with its tall gables and Germanic-style marquetry decorations. So we’ve festooned it ecumenically for the holidays, with tiny vintage Santas (a legacy of my mother Joni Y); topped the gables with Balinese red and gold ribbon (from our friend Philip Cornwel-Smith); plus Morrison Polkinghorne tassels and bows, and finally, Chrissie lights. Cambodia meets Switzerland…now gracing our Bric-à-Brac Boutique vitrine.
