sometimes I dream of a nomadic life...

My husband put the little green cabinet with the fridge in our VW van today - that means we will be going on vacation soon! Driving south to the Mediterranean Sea, living in our little van, feeling a bit like a nomads...


Nomad earrings.

The faux coral turned out to be real coral after all. Combined with dangles from Egyptian jewelry...

Sounds like an adventure is right around the corner! I used to love to go camping in our pop up. Things slowed down and you appreciated things that would have sped by at home. Have fun!

Renate, I'm so excited for you going on this vacation! I remember your trip last year....
I didn't know you had a VW van!! I grew up with one - orange with a tan roof. That van came with us from CA to Guam, then yes, to Germany! Five years in Germany and then back to our new home in Virginia where sadly, my Dad finally sold it. :-( So many memories with that van.
Your earrings are so unique and just gorgeous!

Inge said...

Liebe Renate, die Ohringe sind wunderschön. Ich wünsche dir einen traumhaften und erholsamen Urlaub. Genieße die Sommertage, ich freue mich auch schon auf meine Auszeit. Alles Liebe und bis bald, Inge

Alice said...

Gorgeous--feminine, and earthy all at once. I can just imagine how the little dangles sway. Delightful!

Silke said...

Oh my, Renate, those earrings are wonderful! They do remind me of nomads. And your vacation sounds amazing!! Daniel and I have talked about some day getting a little camper and being able to just take off on vacations with the dog and all...

And I just LOVE all your kitten photos - how incredibly cute! I would not be able to resist for a minute...

Love, Silke

Ooh, I dream of travel, too. I sooo miss my VW camper from my Colorado days. I could just go any time!
Am LOVING these coral earrings.

Carla Trujillo said...

Sounds like an adventure! I can honestly say that I have not been in a VW Van. We usually vacation with a pop up tent and sleep on the ground in sleeping bags. How I dream one day of some type of camper!!
Your earrings came out beautiful!
