My little souvenir
























Having next to no time to go shopping and sightseeing (the latter of which always takes precedence when I'm abroad) when I was in New Zealand, I ventured into a tourist shop (yup, at the airport of all places) and choose this lovely little glazed bowl which has been dipped at the rim and in the centre with gold as my souvenir. I didn't have time to go panning for gold in the beautiful rivers like my Dad did when he visited as a teen in the 60s but I felt this would be a good second best and it was only $10!

My camera couldn't really pick out the detail very well so it's a little blurry I'm afraid but it's pale blue in the middle and has a mother of pearl in the middle. It looks so lovely on my dressing table although I don't dare put anything in it as it's so delicate!

I am so happy the weekend is almost upon us and the sun is shining! Have a lovely one everyone!
