SHOW & TELL


More participants here

Today I will show you what I have brought back from Egypt. I did some Christmas shopping and also got some gifts for my friends.



There is a lot of junk souvenir articles to buy but I found these quite nice. Cups are usually very beautiful and little blocks in leather to put besides the phone very pratical. I also bought ballpens, address books, book signs out of papyrus, pencil boxes and two cats of course. The necklaces are made out of beautiful shells. I even bought some medication because they are exactly the same then ours, but the price is not even half of what it costs here !



For myself I bought these two necklaces which Rosie inspects with some doubts.

The other things I can't show, because they are a Christmas secret !

I love those cats.

Love it all Gattina! [and I'm wondering...the cat doll beside your necklaces and Rosie....is that too from Egypt?]

Gracie said...

The blue necklaces looks beautiful. I like to buy gifts for Christmas (or birthdays) when I'm traveling, I think it's much easier this way than to go shopping at the last minute!

I should introduce you to all my cat friends at the Singapore cat cafe.

Hi Gatti!

Have a wonderful day!

aha! i knew you would be doing some shopping - those bazaars are really there to lure tourists to buying stuff. at least you have done some early Christmas shopping .. and who could resist those lovely cats?

Looks like a lot of great shopping! Which I know you would do of course, but never the less interesting to see what you bought.

Hey, you said to Puss in boots that you already have other plans for August, so you won't come to Oslo. Now you made me very curious: what other plans? Anything exciting?
