This summer, while in Panama, I had a conversation about souvenirs with a girl who's mother collects spoons. I guess she is sort of known for it and now whenever anyone who knows her travels they bring her back a spoon. This got me thinking. Is there something I collect, something I go back to over and over. Something I buy everywhere I go. At the time I couldn't think of anything but after further consideration it dawned on me. I collect vessels.
These three are what I picked up in my various travels this summer. The fish vase is from a pottery studio in Hatteras, NC. The basket is from Panama. The blue glass is from Bar Harbor, ME. I have them from all over the world and people do in fact bring me vessels as souvenirs when they travel. So, in conclusion, if you're going anywhere bring me back a vessel. I like them.
