Home again, home again


 How nice the garden looks.
 

Laura cleaning her souvenirs. 
The entire haul came home in her backpack.
Hard to believe it was not confiscated for smell and put off the plane.


I stepped around to photograph the haul from two trips to the beach.
But I'll also point out, shells are drying on a thirty year old towel.


Time to unpack!

  1. The garden is looking great - and that is an impressive haul.
    One of your towels? A thirty year life is excellent.

  2. I certainly understand. One summer vacation our two teenage sons hid a starfish in the trunk thinking to bring it back to Minnesota from Vancouver Island. Needless to say the bad smell revealed all and it required burying in Montana....

  3. Welcome home! I trust you had a nice vacation. The garden is looking lovely and so are the souvenirs. It's hard to believe your towel is 30 years old.

  7. Shells like those look very nice piled into a clear fat vase (often found in thrift stores) . . .

    I love finding what the ocean washes up. That's my choice of souvenir, too.

    Glad you had a safer trip this year, Joanne.

  14. Oh Joanne. What a nice trip for you both. 30 year old towel? They barely last a year here. It's good to be home. Did someone water for you. I have to nearly every day as it is HOT!
