Little Bo Peep July 16, 2009

Every since we started dating my pilot and I have always made the decision to get or do one really nice thing when we travel somewhere. For example, when we were in Istanbul we purchased one genuine, handmade, Turkish carpet rather then lots of little trinkets. I’m not trying to brag it’s just a preference of ours. Besides I don’t really like to dust so having a ton of small trinkets around would be a disaster for my housekeeping.

Since we have been living in England we’ve had the opportunity to do lots of nice things, but we had yet to purchase something as a remembrance of our time in England. There is a myriad of union jack prints and mind-the-gap paraphernalia, but in the spirit of the British we have opted for something local and handmade. As an added bonus I think this particular item is super cute! We are getting a wooden sheep complete with real sheep’s wool. It sounds silly when I write it down, but I’ll post pictures as soon as I can. It is certainly a unique creation and the woman who makes them is a regular at our local market.

Do you have any unique treasure from your travels?

    Sean and I like to buy prints of where we’ve been. When we went to Tuscany we bought a print (paint) that was 1 of 200 prints made like it.

    To answer your question about photography classes, I haven’t taken a class or really read any books other than my Photshop Elements book. Really the best thing you can do is get out and practice, practice, practice and take TONS of shots. I also like talking to photographers whose photos I like. They usually can give you more good tips too. I really do want to take a class though, there are a lot of things I still need to learn. 🙂

    I want to do the same thing and since I’m leaving Texas, now I have to figure out what! I’m thinking about a piece of handpainted Mexican pottery, or perhaps a set of bowls. I’ve only got a few weeks to figure it out!
