Well, had an amazing time on holiday - who wouldn't love this sort of thing -
Of course we didn't just lie about sunbathing - it turned into a bit of an adventure holiday - jeep safari, rafting, mud bath, boating, walking, swimming - it was a relief to spend the day at the beach!
During the week we went to a market and I stumbled upon a little craft stall selling jewellery and of course I had to buy something! Bought this gorgeous ring and necklace.
In the town near where we were there was the most lovely shop selling handmade things - they had amazing fused glass pieces, however I settled for one of these lucky Turkish balls (mainly for the ease of suitcase packing!) They had one which was about 12 inches in diameter which I would have really loved to bring home. It was called an 'earthquake ball' as it would make a noise should there be an earthquake. It would have been gorgeous hanging in the bay window in my sitting room - maybe next year!
Well I am going to pop over to Handmade Harbour to see what everyone has been up to over this Jubilee weekend. We had some lovely celebrations in the park in town - 1000 pipers marching through! And the kilt run where they were attempting to beat the world record - which is held by Perth in Ontario, however sadly they were 60 runners short. As we got city status just recently, the council really did their best to make it a great day for a double celebration - and the weather co-operated for once!
Have a great week!
