Jamaica Vacation Treasures

I came back from vacation last weekend, I went to my native Island of Jamaica to visit family and friends and to renew my energy and soak up some love. I had a great time and received some wonderful treasures from my mom, by now you may start to realized I love treasures.

My mom gave me a pair of red crochet doilies and a green crochet doily I recall from my childhood, plus a pair of small drinking glass also from my childhood. Since I stated sewing I look at clothing and home decor items in a different light, I am more observant of the creative work that went into making the item, and this makes them more treasured.

 The day after I arrived I decided to visit my Aunt and Uncle, and my Grand Uncle in eastern part of the Island in the Parish of Portland and St. Thomas respectively.

My aunt live just outside of Port Antonio, in Portland, and her property is just lovely, she grows most of her own vegetables, and the big plus is she has a river running in the back of her property, and it is great to take a quick swim on the hot day.
