Ethiopian treasures.

This post is a long time coming but I thought I would finally post a picture of some of the treasure we brought home from Ethiopia. In some of my older posts you'll see pictures of the two outfits we bought for Noah, the wooden stool, the drum and the hat. But these are things we have never posted pictures of. Our greatest treasure..see I lied we always post pictures of this one..but now for the unseen.


Wooden goblet..it has a giraffe on one side and an elephant on the other.


Carved wooden elephant candlestick.
I couldn't get a good picture of this beautiful soapstone coaster set.



A little cup and dish.


The painting we bought at the italian restaurant/art gallery. A soapstone rhino and a wooden zebra.
An English/Amharic bible(new testament only) two necklaces and a keychain that we will give to Noah when he's older. The keychain will probable be a gift when he gets his drivers license or first new car or something so we have ALONG TIME before he get that.

Your son if beautiful...just had a quick question, his hair seems to be like that of my 8 month old foster daughter. Can I ask, how do you take care of his curls?

we bought the elephant candlesticks for my MIL, too! How fun. Then again, it only makes sense we'd have some of the same stuff since we did all our shopping in the same places. : )
