Gone Fishing

I love fish, I love the shape of them, the colour…..I find them fascinating. Maybe it is because I am a Pisces. Anyway, here are some I have spotted on my travels.

  1. What a wonderful collection, Debra. I especially love the fish door handle AND your adorable sandals!!! Are they Italian??

    • My sandals are Prada from several years ago, and I love them.

  2. Reblogged this on RD Revilo.

  3. I love the colourful fish sandals.

    • Me too, I had to have them.

  4. Some of those are heraldic representations of dolphins. They tend to look like sea monsters…
    I love your sandals!

    • I know some of them are not strictly fish, but they are a bit fishy.

  5. Absolutely love the fish sandals!!!!:)

    • I couldn’t resist them. I only wear flat shoes, so it is great to find fun sandals like this.

  6. That’s one heck of a pike in Helsinki!

    • It is very impressive. The pike is new to Helsinki this year. I was there just after it was unveiled.

  7. Definitely something very fishy about your blog today, Debra. Love your sandals. :)

    • I love that handle too. I have some ceramic ones, which I forgot to photograph. I might do that right now.

  8. Don’t you love fishing stories! The fish handle is my favourite…I want one!!!

    • The fish handle is great. I would love one on my front door.

  9. Rocking the sandals Debra! ;-) Some of those fishies look very familiar to me too!

    • I’m sure you have passed by many of those fish in your travels.

  10. Ha ha !! your fish sandals are a perfect finish!! what an awesome collection, you must have an excellent filing system.. c

    • My filing system is in my head. I wish I knew how to file my photos.

      • clever head..

      • I just have a good memory.

  11. I love how you are blogging by themes, Angels, Fishing… it takes lot of research and a wide traveller like you. It also make your blog invaluable for researchers.
    Nice pictures Deb!

    • I now have thousands of photo to sift through when looking for a theme. Some take a while to collect.

  12. Oh my…something else very specific that we have in common. My house is full of them! Full. I love this post, obviously.

    • I do collect a fair bit of stuff along the way. I love fish, frogs, snakes and a few other things.

  13. Gorgeous sandals Debra and I must say that your pedicure is sparkling! Something I need to attend to! :P

    • You may notice that my big toenails are different. I dropped a very large and heavy terra-cotta pot on my right toe and the toenail gre back in a completely different shape. I was lucky it grew back at all, I really smashed my toe.

  14. This is really cool, Debra! Beautiful Sandles.

    • Thank you for visiting and commenting.

  15. Unbelievable! You impress me so much with your eye for details. So so much.

  16. [...] out more fish and Bagni di Lucca and Beyond [...]

  17. great sandals! I also love the fishy door handle in Sardinia, well spotted!

    • I love finding small things on my travels.

  18. You have the best ideas (and photos to go with) – that Helsinki pike is kind of creepy, no?

    • I like the Helsinki Pike. It is quite impressive when you are standing beside it.

  19. Beautiful collections!!!
