• Making Memories Last!

    New York…I am settling back in after my long trip. I am not big on souvenirs, but I did bring back some items from my travels that I would like to incorporate into my home!

    First, my distant relative in Poland gave me a handmade linen and then I bought some South Pacific mud cloths…I decided to frame these memories and make them part of my NYC loft decor!

    Now I can remember my trip everyday when I see these cool DIY decorations!




  • I can’t live without…

    Parga,Greece…looks like a Greek Island but it’s on the mainland along a lovely stretch of the Ionian Sea. After a rocky night sailing through some crazy seas, we arrived.

    Today was low key…sailing the coast and then a wander round town. I won’t focus on my continuous bragging about the beautiful water as I think it’s clear how amazing Greece’s beaches & seas are by now!

    Yesterday my own stupidity took center stage, today the stupid souvenirs being sold allover town really took it’s toll…what is this crap? Who buys it? Why was it made? What does it have to do with Greece?

    I saw a crazy amount of phallic symbols, silly tees with dumb sayings on them, and more magnets than any refrigerator should ever hold! Is a penis bottle opener, a Parga Raggedy Ann doll, or a carved wood dog’s head shoe horn a necessary take away from my Greek holiday? Are these gifts I can’t live without? I don’t think so, but if anyone wants one I am happy to do my part reviving Greece’s economy buying them!
