Handmade, colorful napkin rings…

 blogger 007

I love the multitude of color in these napkin rings. I brought them back from Africa where they were handmade. I don’t possess the manual dexterity to make something like these. They are not only useful, but a wonderful memory piece from a fabulous African photo safari. One of the highlights of the trip,,, in addition to seeing the animals, was sitting at the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro at sunset drinking champagne.

These are so nice to have. I love having things to use that remind me of a vacation or a special trip!

I know a missionary in Kenya and she's brought back things like this. Such intricate work. I could see my girls trying to wear them as bracelets if they could get them over their hands (their wrists are certainly small enough). I'm new to blogging and I'm sure enjoying all the wonderful ladies I'm meeting and all the beautiful blogs. Yours is wonderful.
Blessings,
Marcia
