SHOW & TELL - Shopping in Egypt

I don't have a lot to show yet, because we are too lazy to go shopping and so tired in the evening from all that fresh air at the beach.

We always think that we still have more than one week time. Unfortunately I catched a bronchitis and have to take antibiotics, which makes me tired too.

But here are a few items I bought as little gifts to make, and two lovely necklaces for me. Fortunately I like to haggle because usually I get then less than half of the price ! Egyptians love ito haggle and if you play the game you can do very good deals.

a keyholder with the godess Bastet

A pill box in turtle form

and the two necklaces in half precious stones.

Did you dress too light ?? sorry to hear you are sick, hope the antibiotics work soon.
Nice finds, and they are small so they fit in every suitcase.
Love your multi-purpose post :)
What is Chantal having for breakfast? can't decide what I see to the right of the table (from my point of view). Please explain, lol. And get ready for another "boring" week :)

Would LOVE to have that pill box. I'm going to have to look for one just like that here! Doubt if I'll find anything close...but that one is super!!!!

What a great find.

(your comment box is not playing well with me this morning! I've had a horrible time leaving comments!)

I'm so sorry you got sick on your vacation - that should NEVER happen! On the other hand... I love that little turtle pill box! At first glance I thought her shell looked like a HAT! But then I looked again and realized it's a baby turtle on her back! It's still cute... I'd like it better if the shell was a hat... LOL! Chantal looks absolutely DELIGHTED with the breakfast! How great!

Lovely items. I shopped in Egypt in 1978. It was such fun. We spent some time in Cairo and Alexandria. We were on a cruise ship harbored at Alexandria, and one night a small group of us went into the city. It was pretty scary at night, but very exciting. Your post brought back good memories. Thanks.

would be nice to sit on the beach everyday with a nice view like this, very cold in my world

Oh I am so envious today - this is beautiful!
Enjoy Gattina - it is 25 degrees in my world this morning with a light dusting of snow. The windchill is near 14 degrees.
I just know THAT had to make you feel better!! :)

I wish I could be bored with blue skies. Lucky you. Good sky watch.

I hope you feel better soon. Your vacation photo of the beach and beautiful sky is beautiful. Nothing boring about this shot.

SIGH - how I wish we could ALL be on vacation with you, but this is the next best thing. LOVE the turtle pillbox!

Is it warm?

Louise said...

Yeah, be bored for me, too! Beautiful sky photo. Lovely post.

Catherine said...

And you think of us for Sky Watch!
Do you want to make us feel more jealous : )
Now, we will see that kind of sky in about 5 months!

A blue sky is never boring to me, I see so many grey ones here.

Hi Gattina, I wish I was there with you! I would love to go to Eygpt! I like your trinkets you found. Hope you feel better. Nothing is worse than to be on vacation and not feel well!
Love, Ann


Hi Gattina! You look like you are enjoying
yourself! I knew you'd be bringing home at
least one cat item from Egypt! Don't worry
about the me-me meme, we'll see you when
you get back!!!! Enjoy! Jewelgirl
