This is a tangine for salt and cumin. My sister gave this to me for Christmas, I was sooo excited! She had her friend bring it back for me from Morocco and some Moroccan cumin, delish!
These are my favorite slippers from Morocco, another gift, but from my sister-in-law. She picked them up for me, while vacationing in Morocco. What a great surprise!
This is a decorative tangine, great to put your rings in. Another gift from my sister, but these last 2 items were bought at Pier 1, but made in Morocco.
I can get my hands on about the Tudor period. I love Allison Weir books and Philippa Gregory books. I visited Hever Castle, where Anne Boleyn grew up, their family home, it was amazing! It was so neat to see her bedroom and her personal items, even the bed where, King Henry VIII slept, when he visited. I love England and all it's history.
This is my painting of Jane Seymour. I know this isn't factual of what she looked like, this is more the Tudors Showtime series interpretation of her.
