A last gelato in Florence before flying home to Africa
Handbags and shoes are my passion.
I usualy buy a few (ok - several) handbags on each holiday.
This leather bag is a thing of beauty to me - soft buttery leather - love it!
And another handbag
filled with hot orange suede, it can be turned inside-out
so I have 2 bags for the price of 1
a gorgeous leather purse which I bought at the San Lorenzo Market in Florence
this was a gift for my younger sister Caron
the inside of the purse
and an Italian leather pencil bag to put into above handbags
hand-stitched leather kitty key rings
I bought a few Italian kitties as stocking-fillers
Of course I bought several scarves. The Italian ladies stylishly throw on a
scarf with everything they wear - us tourists copied them.
But we sweltered in the summer heat wearing scarves.
We didn't care, we wore them anyway.
I have a tradition to buy treats for my kitty children wherever I travel in the world.
They have had kitty treats from London, Singapore, New York, and now Italy.
