Inspired by Heather and Todd’s use of all the treasures they have found on their travels, we told you a bit in Issue Two about something we have each found along the way. We decided to show and tell a little bit more!
My find is a canvas painting purchased along the Seine River while in Paris. Every time I look at it, it takes me back to that time and setting, and all the memories. – Alayna
Here are a few pieces I have picked up…colorful bracelets from St. Thomas and a couple of silver pieces from Mont St. Michel, France. I also seem to randomly run into celebrities…here’s a pic of me, my cousin Jill and Adam Sandler.We ran into him in a lobby of a movie theater at midnight in Ft. Lauderdale a few years ago. (Note my crazy fan eyes!) – Dawn
The plate is by Paola Navone for merci – a very cool store in Paris! I chose it because of the 5 (for my family of 5, of course!) and because it was easy to bring home. -Lisa
I bought these two Edgar Degas prints on my first trip abroad in 1992 at the Louvre in Paris. Even though the real paintings don’t hang in that museum, Degas was always my favorite and I bought both for a few francs. I love that both are paintings of dancers behind the scenes, stretching and warming up. I finally saw some Degas paintings “live” in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2005. – Kim
I found this hand painted porcelain bowl while visiting a dear friend living in Okinawa, Japan. I don’t remember what the lettering means now, but the beautiful colors and birds in flight sit on my dining table and remind me each day not only of a fantastic trip, but of my friend. -Sarah
