Trinket Tuesday: A Medieval Ceiling


The ceiling at the tenement house museum in Edinburgh was gorgeous.

I love the vivid colors and the fruit motifs. This ceiling is the original and was discovered underneath other layers in recent years. It’s incredible to me that the color pigments lasted through the centuries.

If you could paint anything on your ceiling, what would it be?

Trinket Tuesday is where I share some of the lovely things I discover during my travels, research or around town. All pictures are my own (unless I state otherwise). I hope you enjoy!


Tel Aviv

IMG_0436.jpgTel Aviv. I tagged along during my husband’s work trip. While he was at work, I walked up and down the beaches, people-watched, ate and talked at the Night Kitchen, learned about Israel’s history, felt mesmerized, conjured future novel plots. I hope there is a return-trip in my future.

Once upon a time at the Eiffel Tower

Paris Thanksgiving 08 030.jpg

I took this picture during my very first trip (and solo trip) to Paris more than ten years ago. I didn’t own a camera and used a disposable Kodak camera to snap this picture of the Eiffel Tower.

It’s a terrible picture, but such a wonderful memory.
