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.

Loving this six strand choker necklace!




And this cute charm necklace:


Then we have the bracelets:

This is the one I just purchased. Note the copper clasp, magnetized.


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,




Whew. That’s a relief! Finally, a “good” pair of slightly higher heels that I can actually wear.
