Odds and Ends

A trip isn't really complete without some sort of souvenir.

My brother got us started on collecting small rocks and shells from different parts of the world - this time, it was from Noto Antica, Lido di Noto, Lido d'Avola, and lava from Mt. Etna.

But traditional tchotchkes have their place - we brought chocolate from Modica to share tastes, small ceramics, and marzipan candy fruit from Sicily

Scarves and a bit of lace from Venice

And a Dala horse from Sweden

I spent a considerable amount of time peeking in booths in Florence for the perfect leather purse - my idea of perfect is not currently in style :-\
But I did find a nice leather belt in Lucca!
