Etsy treasury in honour of my upcoming holiday

Items from my Etsy shop have been included in over 2000 treasuries and I really appreciate people choosing to feature my things and the time it takes them to come up with a treasury.

I rarely have the time to sit down and create them myself but over the last weekend I decided to go through some of my favourites and see what I could come up with.

As soon as I saw the photo of the suitcases I knew I was going to have to make a treasury in honour of our upcoming trip to Florida in 20 days (yay!!!).

Here it is - I hope you like it and some of the things in it :)

Three weeks today ...

...we will be on our way to Florida for two whole weeks.

We've never been to Florida before and are really excited.  It'll be nice to leave the freezing temperatures behind and to have some sun but mostly it'll be lovely to spend time together as a family, just the four of us (without the hassles and stresses of everyday life at home).

Firstly we have booked a Condo at the Bahama Bay Resort in Davenport, Orlando for 11 days.

I'm sure we'll have a great time in Orlando however, as I'm not really into theme parks (though I cannot wait to see Harry Potter World and I'm sure there's no-one in the world who doesn't want to cry when they enter Disneyland), in the middle of our stay there we are packing up and leaving the condo to spend two nights in Savannah - I have wanted to go to Savannah for such a long time and cannot wait!!  This is the Mummy part of the holiday.

The historic Marshall House will be our home for our little break in Savannah.  

Then it's back to the condo in Orlando for a couple more days and finally on day 11, after what will probably have been a pretty hectic holiday so far we will be slowly making our way to Key Largo stopping off at the Everglades on the way to meet the local wildlife.

We will be spending the last three nights here at the Hilton Resort in Key Largo and have an ocean view room.  It is a dream of mine to wake up to a sea view so for three days at least, I'll be living the dream!!

We plan on a trip to Key West one day and want to hang around to watch the sunset and then the last couple of days will just be chilling.  Enjoying the beach and the activities and just winding down after our busy trip.

Of course, I'll be doing a little shopping while we're there.  Seth will probably want some Hollister stuff and Lily lives in Converse so I'm sure a few pairs will make their way into our suitcases.  For me it's Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn in Orlando.

I want this bedding from Restoration Hardware ..

..and these kitchen pulls from either Pottery Barn (first image) or Restoration Hardware (second image)

Fate?  Destiny? It just so happens that The Paris Market is on the same road as our hotel in Savannah.    I've wanted to go to that shop since I saw it in a magazine not long after it opened.

We've booked for us all to swim with dolphins in Discovery Cove too so that should be amazing.  The kids are really looking forward to that.

It should be a great holiday.

I'm now just counting down the days :)
