One of the joys of travelling, for me, is the visual feast. It doesn’t really matter where…every new place has new sights, smells, textures and visuals. And, having spent my life studying design visuals, I love seeing anything new!
A part of all this exploration is, of course, shopping. Y’all know just how much I love shopping, don’t you? It’s the browsing and newness of it that never fails to thrill me. Thrill? Excite? Well, maybe those words are exaggerations, but you get the idea.
THIS TABLE is the reason we returned to Savannah, having just been there five weeks ago. We bought it from Alex Raskin Antiques: click on the name and you will see my entire post all about his shop. It is….well…just something else! Packed, and I mean jam packed, with antiques. But we had seen this lovely birds-eye-maple table when last walking by. Made about 1830, it almost matches our other bedside table: we just couldn’t believe the similarity. And this one was a VERY good price which came down even more once we made our choice known. So now it sits by my bedside, awaiting new glass knobs.
And now on to the bits and bobs I found in Savannah!
One of my favorite shops is
One Fish Two Fish
I was on the hunt for a piece or two of what has become a favorite kind of jewelry for me: narrow leather bands, some with a bit of glitz and glam, banded together, with a clasp of copper or silver and magnetized. I have so many elastic bracelets which I love but eventually that elastic does wear out, and it’s hard to find one small enough for my wrist.
And this cute charm necklace:
Then we have the bracelets:
And here you have my collection! The two front bracelets I wear every single day so I knew I could use another and wear it also. Yes, either solo or together: they work well!
One last bit of follow-up to my previous post about shoes.
The Soludos arrived!!!! And I’ve been wearing them around the house and yes, indeed,
THEY ARE KEEPERS
Whew. That’s a relief! Finally, a “good” pair of slightly higher heels that I can actually wear.
Love those bracelets! My wrist is tiny too and I gave up on wearing bracelets ages ago. These look fantastic.

Wish I had known, I would have bought you one! Come over and try some on and then I’ll know for next time!!!
I wear bracelets everyday too. I just don’t feel dressed without one or more on. I often wear wrapped versions, they’re pretty casual but yours seem to be a little more refined & versatile. Nice collection.

Yes! I put on at least one bracelet every day and don’t really feel dressed without one. So, of course, that means always being on the lookout for new ones (smiley face!)
Love the flooring that you are standing on. Will you share the source? I am currently up to my ears in samples for bathroom tiling before making a selection!
Many thanks, Sharon
Oh Sharon, that is amusing! That is a sample of marble that I’ve had for several years and now use as a photo backdrop!!! We were thinking of using it in the lavatory then never went ahead with the entire project. It is from Best Tile, if that helps. Sorry, no label etc on the back. Good luck!!!
Lol. I am always looking at the “whole picture”. I was hoping it was a faux marble (porcelain) as real marble is so risky here in Florida with all the humidity and dampness ever-present. Back to my search!
Thank you! Sharon
wow, I never would have thought of that. In our master bath we did ceramic tile with radiant heat underneath: love love it!
