It’s here!

I had to share this with you 🙂 I purchased this hand-woven rug during a trip to Morocco. It isn’t huge, because they were so expensive…more than I had on me, for sure! But the handicraft is beautiful, and since I limit myself to ONE purchase in each country, per trip (I’m not a souvenir ladened suitcase traveler…much to my friends dismay.) I was able to justify this little luxury to myself without too  much work.

It took a while to get everything in order and to have it shipped. Then have it shipped again. But now, it’s home! I hope you like it too…the photo colored a bit weird, but rest assured, its gold and blue tones are just beautiful 🙂

        I suspect the photo doesn’t do it justice. 🙂

  2. Looks beautiful! Did you have to pay much? I am a little strange but I often buy books from or about the place I go to

      Thanks! I had to pay more than I wanted to, that’s for sure. But I wanted the ‘real’ one, not a knock-off sold by street vendors. So it was worth it 🙂
      You aren’t strange at all! Travel books as souvenirs are awesome!

    That is the type of purchase I would make. I almost bought one in Istanbul this summer. I’m not someone who buys souvenirs, either, but something for the house, clothing or food items are great to enjoy the entire year.

        I bought spices, teas and oils, shoes and clothing. Nothing for our home because we’re going to make a big move soon and we’re trying to have fewer things at the moment

        Sounds like a good plan. Spices teas and oils can’t be beat sometimes. I still have some of the spices I purchased on trips and I dread the day they run out.
