Desert Sun and Sand

Inspired by the Desert

1. Cactus Candleholder / 2. Art Print / 3. Grand Canyon Poster / 4. Desert Leggings / 5. Gilded Turtle / 6. Body Scrub / 7. Decorative Candle / 8. Cactus Pen / 9. Succulent Wreath / 10. Coyote Tank / 11. Saguaro Tiki Statue

I think I’ve explained before how for every trip we take I always try to find a keepsake for our jars or the house to remember our trip by. For the desert I haven’t chosen my item yet but that little turtle sure has my attention.

Which item would you choose?

  1. I’d definitely choose those adorable cactus leggings for a kid. Now of course, since I don’t have a kid – I’d probably go with something not-so-kitchy like the body scrub. (The Guy hates it when I bring home more decorations), Even though I’d love that cactus. Moreso if it were a palm tree.

    1. Lol, palm trees! I’m getting you a palm tree for Christmas, FYI.

  2. Love the colors of that candle in #7.

  3. Definitely the candle!!!

  4. I agree with your approach – I always pick “souvenirs” that remind me of the place but that actually have a purpose. So much better than trinkets on a shelf!

    1. I just feel like stuff should be useful, you know?

  5. These are so cute! And since I live in Arizona they are perfect for me!! I am dying over that tank top 🙂

  6. I’m gonna go with the succulent wreath. I LOVE SUCCULENTS, and a wreath out of them just seems like the perfect idea! I do love the vintage art. Whenever we take a trip I buy a postcard or cheap piece of art to frame somewhere in the house. Current favorite memory – my postcard of big foot looming outside a tent filled with campers. We went to Portland last year. Love the selection above!

    1. I keep going back to stare at it some more. It’s so pretty! I want to DIY a succulent wall but am kind of scared.

  7. I love #5! I would definitely have to choose the gilded turtle as my desert vacation reminder!

  8. I love the prints! (#2 & #3)

  9. I love those cactus leggings. So love that look for kids right now.

  10. I love the leggings but then I do have a slight legging obsession!

  11. I really love the wreath!

    Oh goodness I love the leggings for the kiddos!

  13. I definitely want almost every single thing up there. I love the card and poster, they’re super pretty looking.

  14. I would have to go with #6!

  15. So cute! I love that gold turtle!

  16. The coyote tank reminds me of AZ. Very cute 🙂

  17. I am really loving the Grand Canyon print and the reef! I love Rifle Paper Company they make some pretty cool prints. I went to a Lulu and Georgia pop up shop a few months ago and they were selling California ones 🙂

  18. I love the cactus leggings for my little one–though, I won’t lie, I would probably wear them if they came in adult sizes. 🙂 Such a cute collection!

  19. Definitely that turtle. It’s so fab and would look so classy in any room!

    I’d love to visit the desert!

  20. The wreath!

  21. That gilded turtle is perfect – I want it on my desk!

  22. It was so great to finally meet you tonight!! I have seen that Hello tank so many times, I gotta pull the trigger next time I am shopping on their site 🙂

  23. i love the succulent wreath! i’ve always wanted to make one for myself.. but i can never keep succulents alive.

  24. Oh my goodness, that succulent wreath is gorgeous!

  25. Those little leggings are so cute!

  26. Definitely the candle! Such pretty colors..
