  1. Love the growth chart. I guess there are some things that are the same no matter the culture. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. The sandals are very cool. It always seems that there is such a contrast between harshness and beauty in the Saudi culture.

  4. I love the detailing of the china cup and the sandals. We had a growth chart on a door way in our kitchen in our home. Unfortunately we had to leave it behind when we moved.

  13. Love the child growth chart. It’s so funny how we’re all so uniquely different, but some things are the same, no matter where you grew up.

  21. The sandals remind me of an ancient ruler in Egypt; maybe because of the design.

    I hope you bring out more of the box of stuff to share.. Lynz you are the silver lining found in dark clouds.. Many people would toss everything out that could possibly be a reminder of a traumatic part of thier life.. You embrace the good and remember the bad.. Both wise to do.. ๐Ÿ’›

    • Your so sweet Pan! I have tons of stuff and honestly have thought of doing a give away which would be fun to give several things as gifts. I have OCD and so that is stopping me from doing so! It would be fun maybe someday! xxx

        Oh wow, you’d create a WP frantic frenzy with a giveaway of your souvenirs.. And my heart would ache thinking you gave something away that you regretted including in the giveaway.. You can’t just go ahead and replace them ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  35. Such interesting things! I don’t know the song, I’ve heard it on a kids music commercial, but the first thing that popped in my mind when I saw those sandals was “I’m so fancy”. They really pay attention to detail!
    And BTW it’s so good to get back to my blog reading! I’ll be catching up on yours over the next few days… I’ve missed seeing your posts!
