I like this occupation. I like it very much! On this particular holiday to Tasmania I was very restrained. Just three momentos was all that came home with me. The first is a very colourful postcard of houses, the original a watercolour by Steve Howells. There's something about a row of houses, or even a single house that attracks me everytime. Always will.
The next is a lovely linocut card by Joanne Wild. I was particularly drawn to this image of the woman and her duck, and the stark contrast of orange on white.
And the final purchase, which I now realise was also bought in the same town as the cards, but on a different day, in Deloraine, is a dear rosy rabbit brooch. She was pinned to my shirt today when I went out for lunch. She requested lettuce leaves, but I quietly whispered that she would eat when we got home, I've already found her manners to be somewhat questionable.
Simple treasures. Lovely reminders.
Do you like to bring home small momentos of a holiday?
Wishing you a lovely weekend.
