Home Things ….and Souvenirs

Oct 13th- One of my favorite things to do….nesting. I am home and enjoying every bit of it! It is wonderful to putter in our home….cleaning, cooking……I have been baking bread (OK, not such a big to-do with the bread machine) and cooking soups, making pizza, and fixing all of our favorite meals. It is fun to be back in my kitchen.   : )

I have also been putting away our travel things and incorporating our ‘souvenirs’ from our travels.

We hung this stained glass in the front window…..



We bought this piece in a shop in Homer, Alaska. It is an amazing 3 dimensional piece with the flower petals and leaves reaching out from the glass. The flower is ‘Fireweed’, a wildflower which we saw in full bloom all over Alaska. Looking at it reminds us of the stunning beauty of the ‘North country’.


And this piece, which we bought in Sitka, Alaska.



I though that it went perfectly in the sunroom.

The coffee mugs we bought and several other pieces of pottery have been put to use. But one of our best souvenirs is the fish that we had shipped home from Valdez. We have, and will, enjoy cooking and eating the wild Alaskan salmon and halibut and think of our ‘adventures’….
