The fun part of unpacking

A calendar, gondolier’s hat, and sculptures from wood, paper, and glass

We returned from Venice several days ago and jet lag hit us hard, so we’ve been slow to unpack. Today Mama and I finally unearthed a few of our Venetian treasures.

Despite a broken suitcase, we were thrilled to find the bottle of Moscato D’Asti that we brought home intact, as well as our tiny glass Paisley sculpture. Also photographed are a few of our other favorite goodies: a calendar and illustrated place mat (from our friend Alessandro’s shop, La Ricerca), a painted wooded sculpture/puzzle of a Venetian house with gondola and a pop-up card with an intricate paper cut of Venice (both from another shop we love, Senor Blum), and a tiny wooden puzzle of a gondolier rowing a gondola. Paisley has yet to learn that we got her a red-ribboned gondolier’s hat, but we will be sure to share a photo when that happens!

Incredible detailing on pop-up paper cut card of Venice
