GIFTS FROM POLAND





I have a great friend, Anna, we have worked together for over 15 years, although Anna was born in Australia her parents were Polish and were in a camp in Germany and after the war they were given a choice to live in either Poland, Germany, America or Australia and they chose Australia. Anna has just been visiting relatives in Poland for 3 weeks and came back to work today. These are the wonderful gifts she brought back for me.

This is a neck wrap, it's actually a long piece of fabric and you scrunch it up and put it around your neck twice like a necklace and then twist it. 



 These are Polish slippers, of course with my favourite colour of red, they are so comfy and will be lovely around the house in winter.



 Believe it or not this is a bracelet, Anna said everyone was wearing them in Poland. It's made of material and the ball pieces feel like light pieces of timber.



 This is a souvenir from "Zakopane" in poland, Anna bought her for me because she has blonde hair....


This is the third time in the past 6 years Anna has visited Poland and I have quite a lot of souvenirs from Poland now.


Cheers
Kaylee
