Yesterday I shared photos of the polished antique copper that I saw at the San Telmo street market in Buenos Aires (here). I told you that I didn’t want to have to carry it around during our travels. However, I did find something adorable that would easily fit into my suitcase, was unusual, and just plain fun.
I bought two sets of these cute colored pencils. One set is slightly larger than the other.
I liked the bright colors and the rustic style.
I can use them on my desk….
…and in different containers.
This julep cup will be good pencil caddy around Derby time. (Can you tell I’m trying to learn how to use the manual settings on my camera)?????
Another item I bought is this little tray. It came from a boutique and not the street market. It looks discolored in the photo, but it isn’t.
It is made of silver, zinc, and some other alloy. It will not tarnish like silver does. Its little handles were somebody’s horns. Yikes!!!
It was light-weight and easy to pack. It will get lots of use in vignettes and for serving foods, like tea sandwiches.
