Gifts from Over Seas

I was recently given some gifts from Europe. A friend visited for a two-week whorl wind trip and loved every minute. She visited eight countries and when I asked her which was her favorite, she "Them all!" On the car ride back from the airport I listened to story after story, and descriptions of every  detail of the adventure. Needless to say, I loved it. I heard about the people, the traffic, the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and weather. I could tell she already missed being there.

Upon arriving at home we looked at her 800 pictures (literally) and she brought down three small bags. I was shocked, and excited, that she had brought me something. I opened the paper bags to find these lovelies: a ring made of Murano glass from Italy, a leather coin purse from Italy, and a barrette from Paris! I was, and still am, so excited! I squealed a little on the inside when I opened the barrette. I know that they will get good use and they are just so cute!


After falling in love with my barrette I had to figure out how to wear it. Here are few of the ideas I found. I can't wait to try it out. Good luck rocking your own! -Ciao
