That's a really big spool of yarn!
Everyone needs a fringe bucket.
The find. And of course I had to purchase a tote from the retail store!
Dreaming of ways to create with these selvage outcasts.

Who says winter is the only time for snowballs?
Thinking back to one of my happiest moments. Driving a truckload of furniture from High Point. Stay tuned for more of the story ...

you really do not need a lot, because you can always buy it there. Good walking shoes are a top priority because designer heels are banned, at least in Cinque Terre. I wore my heavy Vasque hiking boots on travel days so I never really had to pack them.
You will want to carry your passport, cash and bank cards with you at all times. This scarf I designed with two secret pockets, accessible with an invisible zipper, worked well. No problem with pick pockets.
A good travel pillow is a must. This one from Pandora de Balthazar, filled with Hungarian goose down, easily squishes into a day pack and is perfect for the long plane and train rides.
Leave extra room in the pack for finds!
Luggage for two, each with a carry on and day pack, ready for the 50-somethings' version of
