During my holidays at the Red Sea in Egypt, I bought of course a part of Christmas gifts and little souvenirs for my friends.



I had put everything on my bed and of course Rosie had to inspect the whole stuff.



Necklaces in semi precious stones, (amethyst, aghates, corals, citrine, rose quartz, fluorite and turquoises) They are unbelievable cheap in Egypt.

You can see them more detailed her at my last Show & Tell (which didn't take place)



I also bought a little note book, a letter opener and a few ball pens



A little jewelry box and calenders in papyrus



Just for fun all the spices the Egyptians use in their food



It was so nicely presented



Letter signs and little pill boxes



A little bell to call Mr. Gattino for dinner, and keyholders.

Most of it is already gone, I think next time I take a truck along !

LOL! That just means that you are blessed with MANY friends! That is great!!! We still have an ash tray that Amanda brought Dennis from Egypt. He still uses it everyday. *cough*cough* -- yes, he smokes.

Oh, you use a bell to call Mr Gattino to dinner? Interesting...

I love the amethyst necklace, it's my birthstone and I have a few amethyst bits and pieces here, especially one that hangs in my car to keep me safe.

Looks like you had a lot of fun buying all those things.

Rosie really are inspecting them. Lovely souvenirs Gattina. Seems like there were a lot of shopping to do :-)

The boxes are my fav of those.
