The Real Blessing of Travel

I have had the good fortune of traveling to a good many cultures and climates in my brief time on this big blue marble.  I’ve seen the Rocky Mountains of the western US, and traveled its beaches from coast to coast.  I’ve tasted beaches and ruins from throughout the Caribbean and the Cote d’Azur, and […]

Weekend Special – New Item, New Price!

We’re pretty excited about a new item that has just landed on our docks!  A few weeks ago we shared that we’d sent a shipment of new Keepsake Boxes to St. Martin, to be featured with one of our retailers.  Now, we’re presenting these same boxes for our retail customers.  And for this weekend only, […]

An Island Tour -St. Thomas

With great anticipation we scoured the map plotting our course for the day.  We had planned this first day to quickly give ourselves a snapshot view of the best and most notable strands of St. Thomas’ shorelines.  We charted a path on this trip to tour the eastern and north-shore beaches,  map and requisite camera […]

Sometimes you have all the time needed to take life at a most leisurely pace, and sometimes you have just enough time to snap the obligatory Kodak moments before the taxi departs.  Such was the two-week, six-city tour of Europe a couple years prior, but that’s a story for another day. Recently we had the […]
