What I bought
So I bought all sorts of random souvenirs while on vacation. Here's the run down of the fun things I brought back. I probably spent as much money on gelato while in Italy, but you can't take that home!
While in Florence I bought this cute little watermelon wallet and a purple and pink handbag. Both are just as cute as can be.
I love all sorts of pretty glass things, so I really went to town in Venice and Murano. This vase and little bowl have my favorite colors.
I also bought this purple ornament to go on the Christmas tree.
And I finished up the glass purchases with the larger fish paper weight for me, and the little fish marbles to give away to my friends. I bought a fish paper weight 17 years ago when I first visited Venice and thought he needed a friend.
We also ventured out to Burano, the lace island and I bought a cute table topper. Mostly because it was purple and the flowers reminded me of pansies. I don't think it was made in Burano, however. China is my guess. I also needed a fan because it was dang hot and humid.
I bought this cute little bowl in Santorini. According to the gals in the store it's a traditional type of ceramic work, decoration and glazing for the area. It's pretty. And a box of strawberry delights to share around. One of my favorite things I bought in Greece was a traditional type apple pie in Corfu. I was starving and that pie was delicious.
When I went on my first cruise I bought a Christmas ornament and a mug with the name of the ship on, so I had to do the same for this trip. I must say that the selection of ship branded items on NCL was not as cool as those that RCI had.
I need to work on writing up all of my adventures across Italy and Greece. Those will be forth coming.
Hugs and Stitches,
