Meissen Napkin Rings and Belize

Is it weekend already? Time sure flies when one is busy and I am always busy.
Anyway, for both Pink Sat. and A Few of my Favorite Things, I am showing our Meissen napkin rings.
And please visit Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ to see more pretty pinks and
Laurie at http://bargainhuntingwithlaurie.blogspot.com/ to see more awesome favorites.

Dh found the napkin rings on Ebay and they weren't cheap. I think we paid $60 for 6 but then I found 3 more which were less expensive.

I like how intricate the design is. If you look at one of the pictures, I turned one over to show you the Meissen marking. They are all marked.



These are definitely my favorite napkin rings. I love the roses on them, so delicate.
Now, it's time to go to Belize, the 3rd port of call on our last cruise. The ship anchored so far from the port so we had to take a tender to get there. See the ship behind me?
There were 3 ships docked all at the same time. Ours is the one in the center.
And here's colorful Belize. We have been there several times in the past so we did not take an excursion. Kerri took the kids on a carriage ride and then joined us shopping afterwards.




We shopped and shopped and then stopped to eat in a restaurant called Wet Lizard.





The food was very good. I had their fried whole snapper with a papaya, beans, salad and plantain. Yum!
Do you see the writings all over the tables, chairs and walls? We asked for a marker and signed our names on the table too so look us up next time you go there.
I am glad you came by. Thanks! It was a short trip so it wasn't too tiring. I really enjoyed shopping.
Thanks to Beverly and Laurie for hosting 2 fun events.

Your napkins rings are so pretty! Thanks for sharing them with us. Looks like you and your family had a great time. I have not had fried plantains (dipped in a mild horseradish sauce) since I Lived in Florida many moons ago.
Enjoy your weekend!

I love those delicate napkin rings Christine. I have a few of them myself, but I think they are placecard holders.
Your cruise looks like a blast. I've always wanted to go to Belize. Looks gorgeous!

Christine, your napkin rings are so pretty! I have some similar napkin rings that are wannabes. Not nearly as pretty as the real thing. Your trip looks wonderful. You and John look like you're having so much fun. I'm jealous. laurie

Your napkin rings are gorgeous and my favorites are yours. I know how much you love Meissen pieces.

The skies look ominous in your boat pictures. That would make me nervous and you do not look nervous at all. I don't know if I will ever GET the cruise thing!! ;-)

Tentative dates for our trip...5/26 to 6/1 Would we be welcome the 4th & 5th days? I will email you once we check air fare.

Sorry for being here so late today- my son is at the prom and we spent all day getting ready... and who said boys were low maintenance? haha!

Have a super week!
