My Birthday in Nafplion

Last week on my birthday my mom and I went to Nafplio.
It is the former capital of Greece 
and lies about an hour and a half by car from here ...


I thought I still had many more beautiful pictures of this gorgeous old city,
but unfortunately ... 
They are somewhere on a backup because they were
taken with my previous camera.
Next time I will take some more pictures when I go there again.

Well of course I took some pictures from my purchases and gifts
when I got back at home...

The Tweety and Mickey Mouse are standing on a tube 
with some very strange candy, that I didn't dear to eat... 


Here I have everything unpacked ...
a mixture of all kind of miniatures LOL! 


My parents gave me money for my birthday so I could buy something myself.
I actually did buy something very very beautiful!! 
Well not here in Nafplion.
But I will tell you more about that later... 

Of course my mom spoiled me with some extra gifts... 


And here are the specific Greek things that I bought, 
all together ...


But I still find this piece the most extraordinary discovery!
It's a fruit bowl that is hand made of olive wood ...


They also have a website with all things handmade from olive wood:

It was truly a wonderful day!!
First we had a coffee together at the time that we arrived
and for lunch a delicious Gyros and fresh Greek salad.
Fortunately it was not too hot
So... a beautiful day for shopping as you have seen 

Mom, thanks for this wonderful day! 
We do this again next year 


Hugs Jollie

  5. Jolie, Happy Birthday...You have the same idea that I have...Make it last as long as possible.

    Love all of the little things. I have a pair of small, not mini, olive wood candlesticks. I don't think that they are from Greece, but they are beautiful wood.

  7. Wat heerlijk Jolie, zo'n dagje met je moeder. Wat een prachtige spulletjes heb je gekocht. De fruitschaal vind ik ook erg mooi. Het beeldje is schitterend, maar eigenlijk is alles erg leuk.

  11. I am glad you had a wonderful birthday. I can still remember sipping tea and having chocolate cake when we were in a little place at Innsbruck that has a similar atmosphere to the pic you showed.

    Yes, it was quite a wonderful afternoon just like yours :).
