Egyptian Treasures

{Ankh silver medal, Ankh = the mirror of life/the cross of life, one of the most well known hieroglyphs} 

I almost forgot to post about my new treasures found in Egypt. In the last few years I have developed a habit of buying jewelry wherever I'm traveling... (remember this?) I think they are the perfect souvenir and I'm extra excited for my trips knowing that I'll come back a few sterling heavier.... :) you know some like fridge magnets, some like silver :D In addition to two new pieces I have also indulged in this amazing leather jewelry box this time. 
Do you collect souvenir pieces from you travels? I'd love to hear what they are! ;)

That box is gorgeous; I love it! I really like getting "souvenirs" that are actually something I will use as opposed to things like magnets, etc.

Hey!!
I must admit that ring caught my intention immediately.
I have a tendency of buying rings everywhre I go, I have some from Turkey, Spain, Italy and Peru. It feels like a perfect memory from a trip :)

what great pieces to bring back! i like to bring back pieces of art (smalll ones!) that really represent the place i've visited. i always think accessories are great to bring back because it's something you'll use/wear and it will bring back the memories!

Ooo, I love this post!! Yes, I always come home with earrings and bangles. I left Morocco with two unique looking wooden boxes (which I now use to store my jewelry in) bracelets, bangles and earrings and a tea pot for the stove. I love my travels and I love reading about yours. xoxo

Love your pics! Though I haven't been to many countries, I love traveling too!

I think my best treasure from another country is a few paintings I purchased in Nicaragua...they were made by this wonderful painter and are incredibly unique.
