#JusJoJan 7th – Ornaments or Useful Items?

Do you bring back a little treasure, something typical from the area you’ve just visited? I do. I can’t help it. I like a reminder of sunnier times or places special to me. My work station is littered with them.

  • A pebble from the beach at Tintagel
  • Kevin the Minion from Universal Studios
  • An elephant keyring brought back from Cost Centre 2’s travels in South East Asia
  • A purple quill pen (with interchangeable nibs!) from Venice
  • Bertie Bott’s Every-flavoured Beans from Hogsmede
  • A scarab beetle painted on papyrus from Aswan

It’s a wonder there’s room for my laptop!

Not every memento is an ornament. Some of them are in use nearly every day: crystals from Boscastle Museum of Witchcraft and essential oils from a tiny shop in Mevagissey.

As I have no idea where we are travelling to this year, I can’t plan what I want to bring back.

Have a fun Monday xx
