Now that Christmas is over, and we are headed into the new year, I am doing an inventory of my last year’s purchases. Taking people shopping in Florence is so much fun, but it is dangerous for me! I see so many beautiful things that I want to buy….I make it a policy to do my own personal shopping only once per season. Of course there are always things I regret not buying, like the earrings which match these rings… gorgeous hand made earrings with little diamonds all around that could be worn just as easily with jeans as with more formal attire. I like the rose gold from this particular goldsmith’s workshop because it is not too pink, but just a nice warm color.
I am thrilled with my bracelet, and continue to get rave reviews on it from my friends in the States. When one is surrounded with beautiful things in Florence, one doesn’t realize how special they are. Back at home, it becomes apparent!
So what do I regret not having bought? Here are the top three items:
And so I will make notes to myself on what to buy next fall, but for now, am thinking ahead to spring. Have booked several shopping tours already, and am eagerly awaiting the season!
