Treasures From My Trips

Treasures From My Trips

With the treasures from my trips, my husband swears I could open a gift shop! I must admit I have quite a collection of collections from our travels.  For over 25 years Terry has considered me a special envoy aiding the world economy.  I just can't help myself! It is a rare occasion I leave a shop without a purchase. Some of my treasures are a little on the expensive side and others not so much. No matter the cost, I love them all dearly!

One of the things I always look for are magnets. They are useful, relatively inexpensive and make GREAT gifts. I especially love handcrafted magnets. Of course, the ones my friends gift me hold a special place in my heart. To me, my magnets are miniature works of art. They remind me of the happiest days of my life and my wonderful friends.

Here is my collection of souvenir magnets:

 You can mouse over most of the magnets to see where they are from





 This is the first in a series of photo essays on my travel treasures.

What souvenirs do you collect? Do you have one you hold near and dear to your heart?

    Oh, magnets – almost the perfect souvenir :)) I too like them – although I don't have as many – but as I saw when I collected some pictures from bloggers all over the world, they are
    definitely famous! 
    I liked yours, especially those from Bahamas and Curacao – I think that you could open a shop – looking forward to see what other treasure you have from your trips:)

    I look forward to reading about your treasures too!

    Now if I am going somewhere I know I will be doing a lot of shopping, I take bubblewrap, flat boxes and tape in the bottom of my suitcase, just in case I dont have room for everything. 🙂

    That's really funny, Stephanie, because I also started writing a post about my 'travel treasuries'. Well… I'm curious to read next episodes. So far, lovely but small souvenirs…
    When it's a matter of bringing back typical object, I usually think big! 🙂
